sleeping is a mission the pain in my legs and hips is just not nice. what will help ease it? seems like I carry the pain all day now. 33+3 weeks does this mean I could be going into early labor and my body just preparing itself??

Do you have a pregnancy pillow? If not a regular works too..
I had it with my second pregnancy and I put a pillow between my legs (I could only sleep on my side at that term) it helped to relax my legs and hip.
Also what really helped was wearing a belly belt. The belt was partially holding the belly weight and would give my hips and legs some time out..

Congrats on your pregnancy.

Get yourself to a Physio as soon as possible. I went private because the wait for NHS was so long. A few simple but very focuses exercises really helped when I was suffering from the same thing. Didn't cure but stabilised so I didn't get any worse as the pregnancy progressed, I've known people to end up on crutches

I have tried the pillows bw the legs not comfortable for me I have big thighs probably and I might be trying to sleep on my belly unintentionally but that's the only way I sleep before pregnancy, could this be a reason for my sore hips??

I was thinking of a full body massage with essential oils smile

I'm currently lying in as another as I'm allowed bath to help my hip. I'm nearly 30weeks and in agony. Seeing the physio was really helpful and means I have a few ab muscle exercises to well as a pillow fort to build each night and sleep in. The big thing I think is to rest it, hence the bath - DP is doing the last minute Xmas shop and DGP have taken the toddler to the park! And I find swimming helps too.
Congrats on pregnancy hope are starting to see the lightatthe end other very long 40week tunnel x

I was thinking swimming for last few weeks now I must act on that asap, OH even suggested going last Sunday but I just turned the whole idea down (terrible mood swings) Bless you DP and the DGP your v lucky to have support from them both <3

Thank you smile but its not exciting any more its tiring, I am moody more often.. I can't wait now tbh just want to see the baby and make sure everything all fine.. I guess its natural to be scared x
