well for now im sittin on an ice pack...but my hips normally hurt when i lay on one side too long..but last night i remember both of them hurting no matter what side i laid on. so i was flipping all night. and now i literally feel like i popped them out of place or something they hurt SO bad..it hurts to walk it hurts to sit up it hurts to lay down.. any suggestions / anyone else have this problem late in pregnancy?
I had this problem with both of my pregnancies with my boys. I used to sit in a semi warm tub as full as I could get it without it spilling into the floor. It is because the weight of your little one pressing on your hips... If you sit in the tub then it will give you the feeling of weightlessness and will give your hips some relief. I used to live in the tub near the end of my pregnancy and walked a lot but sometimes that makes it worse for some but walking always helped me relieve that pressure. I hope you feel better soon =)
Story of my life sister....it gets so bad at night that im forced to get up and pace the room...even though it hurts making urself get up and stretch it out usually helps..at least enough to where you can lay back down again. Or, like nickie says i hop in the bath and fill it super super full...neither take it away completely for me but its better than nothing...im sorry to say that its just going to get worse until they feel like they're completely broken...and then ur LO comes out and it will be alllll better :) or at least thats what im banking on lol! sorry im not much help, ive been the host of my own pity party for weeks but know that ur not alone, the rest of us feel like crud too!!
I go to the chiropractor to keep my hips aligned. Everytime I roll over in bed my hips pop I can't lay on one hip to long or I'm in pain. I usually wake up on my back which I know I shouldn't be. I'm only 21 wks and my chiropractor says he will be my new best friend soon. It also helps with delivery keeping everything aligned.
thank yall so much for the suggestions..i definitely think i'll try the warm bath tonight... as soon as i get up the will power to walk up 2 flights of stairs lol. i wish i could afford a chiropractor but im on medicaid so its a no go.
too bad we can't get in hot tubs! ugh that would be SO nice right now.
