hip out of place?

Hi everyone, I'm 32wks and my right hip bone hurt so much as i walk, it's worse when i try to bend my thighs while sitting, Doc says it's the baby's weight, but i think it has something to do with an accident i had 10 yrs ago, the point is i now limp slightly and try not to put my weight on the right hip. I am just wondering if it will increase my pains during childbirth or cause any hitch, it's really scary, any one got any advice or contribution? i look really funny walking down the road and people keep telling me I'm not suppose to be walking around, it's irritating.

I am SOOO sorry! I have something going on with a nerve just above my butt..sometimes I have to limp it hurts so bad!

I would try to maybe get a note from your doctor to go to a specialist. Sometimes insurance covers it. You will just have to see.

Good luck! Keep us updated!

Best to see a chiropractor. I go 2-3 times a week right now. My right hip hurts too.  It is due to the muscles relaxing and the weight of the baby.  I find the chiropractor and massage works wonders.

Good Luck.

thanks ladies, i have been sleeping with an orthopedic mattress for a week now, damn hard but worked for my hip, the pain is really less, for the nerve thing, I'm booking an appointment for a massage this weekend, so let's hope that will do it, DH has been out of his mind since i told him i might not be able to push during labor, if my hip is out of place! he's freaking scared of the knife. TTYL.

I have this too...just in my right hip...my mother in law had really bad hip problems and i kept thinking to myself( i know this is selfish and im sorry but...) how can it possibly be THAT bad, its just a hip...HA! little did i know how much it hurts!!! The sad part is there is nothing you can technically do about it...i went to a chiropractor and it helped ALOT but when it comes down to it the baby is going to press on whatever nerves they want to and sometimes our bodies just cant hold the weight of a growing baby very well...i have been staying off of my feet as much as possible and taking tylenol for the pain...oh and sometimes warmth takes the pain away, like a warm bath, and i also found that getting in the pool and taking the weight off my hip helps a great deal. good luck with it, and know that it goes away pretty much as soon as the baby is born.

Thanks ladies, my doc says walking and fast pace-trekking would do me a lot of good, so my hip better not give up on me now!
