Knee Pain

(5 Posts)

Hi all
14 weeks today, stopped throwing up finally and feeling pretty good!
But- my knees have suddenly started getting quite painful. Worst in the morning when I get out of bed and towards the end of the day when I have being sat at my desk all day.
Any thoughts on why this is happening? I am still nearly a stone lighter than I was when I got pregnant, regularly swimming and walking etc.
Might is be the hormone thing that relaxes everything a bit?
It's a bit odd!

Might be due to relaxin hormone if there isn't anything else that springs to mind? Do you have any history of knee pain?

have you tried sleeping with a pillow between them?? I probably got my maternity pillow at about 14 weeks because I was having hip and knee pain.. and I LOVE IT!!!

Hi Helga - I could have written your post! I am 13 + 5 and just in the last few days having really bad aches in both knees (particularly one) in bed at night, going off as soon as I get up and move around. I wondered if it was the relaxin doing it. The knee that's worse was a bit dodgy a while ago after a running injury, but has been fine since, so I wonder if the hormones are just making everything less 'supported' and reawakened the injury, hence the aching.

Pillow between the knees hasn't helped for me yet.

Hope it gets better!

I had this too. It disappeared around 18 weeks - I am now 34 weeks. Question: have you ever experienced this before you were pregnant? I have in the past and was told to do hamstring exercises to prevent it, but because it seems to hit randomly have always wondered if there was a hormonal element to it (ie when I wasn't pregnant)
