Just wondered if anyone else has had this. The last few days I've had really sore achy hips, especially when lying down. Last night was terrible, I was tossing and turning all night because my hips were sore after only a short while lying on one side so kept having to turn over. It is a really bony, griding sort of ache. I remember feeling like this from about 34ish weeks with my last pregnancy but this seems ridiculously early! Anyone got any ideas why I might be having this so early?
Hmmm - I got hip pain that early (from about 10 weeks, actually), mostly after I had been sitting cross-legged, and put it down to increased relaxin. However, it wasn't grinding, or painful enough to keep me awake in the evening - more a dull ache.
Maybe others who know more about SPD could comment? I don't know much about it (or even what the acronym stands for!) but I do hear it talked about in relation to a grinding feeling.
Sounds like it should be something to check out. Best of luck.
Painful hips is how I knew I was pregnant.... if it is spd, then my advice would be to drive everywhere, if you can and really minimise how much you walk. I did not do this in my first pregnancy, as I just thought I was getting stiff, so decided to push through the pain - big mistake. Take it easy, if you can. I have got a serola belt, from Amazon, which is really helpful around the house or when having to stand for a while. Definitely worth the money.
Thanks all. Am really hoping it isn't SPD as I'm a theatre nurse so i spend around ten hours a day on my feet! There is no way I can avoid standing unless I get signed off work. Hips feeling ok today, seems to be worst when I'm lying down. Hip pain has been replaced by a stinking headache instead today!
