I've had the worst time trying to get up from a laying down or sitting down position. My pelvic area and my hips anything in between. It all hurts. It will usually go away after I walk around for a while but no matter how long I sit for lay down for i'll have a hard time getting up. The worst is while i'm sleeping and I get up to pee. I've tried lying on both sides, having a pillow in between my legs and it doesnt work. I'm now 28 weeks and this has been going on since about 24 weeks. At first I thought it was the way the baby was positioned but I know he/she has moved around since then. Even to the point where he/she was all above my belly button. I never had anything remotely like this with my first child. And I could understand if I was further along. Has anybody had anything like this before. I know its not stretch pains (i wish it was). I have a Dr. Appointment on wednesday and i'm going to bring it up to him then. But if anybody has any idea on what it could be or if its normal. Or if there is anything else I can try doing it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

All I can say is, it's normal. I was like that with my second baby. Mine are 20 months apart so I think it was being preg, plus taking care of my first child that made my last preg much harder than the first. I'm thinking it's your ligaments/joints loosening. Mine loosened around the same time, and I was always sore and in pain from my waist down to my upper thighs. Uggghh, I can feel the pain right now, lol. Hope you feel better :(

i am 28 weeks pregnant too, and I am going through the same thing. If I sit down or lie down, I try not to get up because it hurts. Im not sure what it is either, but im sure its normal. Good luck with everything.

Thanks girls.


Hopfully it's all normal. You'd think that it would be more painful with your first pregnancy rather then your second. How long did it last for you? A month seems like a long time I hope it gets better soon. Thanks again. I'm going to ask my Dr. On wednesday but he'll probably say the same thing.

For me it lasted from mid preg until about 2 or 3 weeks after I had my baby. I hope it's not like that for you though. I know how you feel :(

God I hope it isn't either. Poor you. If it does last that long the good news is my husband is taking parental leave so i'll have some extra help at home.

Thanks again
