Hip pain?

Hi everyone,

I started to have really bad hip pain today, on both sides. I seem to have woken up with it. It's almost like the pain you get after an intense yoga class, when you discover muscles you didn't know you have.

This is not the same as a time before, when I had pain from my hip down my leg. That was more of a nerve pain, and while it hurt, it hurt different. This pain is like on the "outside" of my hips, almost partially in my bottom muscles as well as the hips.

I read online this is common later in pregnancy, but I'm sure for us carriers of twins/multiples, it's not so uncommon earlier on.

Anyone else have this problem? Any good advice, besides not walking or bending? I plan on taking a warm bath soon. I'm guessing my best sleep position tonight will be partially sitting up on my back, since lying on either side would probably put pressure on my hips. I really don't like sleeping sitting up! Arg...

Yes yes yes,
I had it with my single ton and it was difficult to sleep as you cannot sleep on your front or back and when I slept on one side my hip would ache and then the same on the other side.
I have it already with this one too but it is more pronounced while walking and getting up after sitting. I walk like an 80 year old man until they warm up.
I am not sure what the cure is but after my son was born my hips got so bad I ended up in physio for a while and it was solved quite quickly. I was debating asking about physio while I am still pregnant to try and avoid any real problems.
Try a hot bath maybe?
All the best!!!

Yes! I have this in both hips, especially at night. It makes sleeping fun! I think it's from the hormones loosening the ligaments. I have heard that sleeping with a pillow between your knees helps, so I am going to buy some more pillows and possibly a body pillow too.

Thanks everyone. :)

Yes, see, I already sleep with about 6 pillows. LOL... between my legs, behind my back, under my tummy, under my head, here and there... I can't do more in the pillow category of things.

Yep, my hips are killing me too, especially at night. A pillow b/w my knees used to help, but now, well, nothing seems to. I did have PT for a while, and they felt better after that, but only b/c they applied heat for 10 mins, then a great butt/hip massage, then cold for 10 minutes. I could walk out of there like an almost not pregnant woman :) But it hurt again by the evening...
All the best!
