Hi I'm 20weeks pregnant and for the last week have been in agony 😩
My lower back, tops of my legs and hip joins ache/hurt so much x I struggle to stand up or sit down , I'm walking like I've got a bowling ball between my legs and struggling to stand up 😞
Some days it's worse than others but tends to get really sore in early afternoon, I feel about 90.
This in my 4th baby and never had this before , anyone know what it is xx

It's probably Pelvic Girdle Pain aka PGP or SPD. All the same thing - ligaments relaxing and causing pain.

I think physio and support bands can help but referral times can take a while if you use NHS. You might want to research yourself and pay for physio/bands if you can.
