It's just your pelvis widening....again.
It happens periodically through pregnancy.
The good news? This is the last time it will widen!
Roll around (move your hips hula-style) on an exercise ball - it really helps!
Would this be sciatica?
I'm having this too and figured it was just pressure on the sciatic nerve.
I've had pubic symphysis for a while (terrible pain at my pubic bone)... but I felt what you are describing last night. We went to the mall to pick up curtains and curtain rods, and my hip joints were really stiff. Lower back, butt and front of my hips were all getting sore too. I hadn't had that much discomfort while walking before.
However, in my case at least, it's not a sign of progress. Just 2 hrs before that I had my dr appt and I was only fingertip dilated. Baby is just getting heavy and it's wearing on our bodies!
Kim B.:My back, my hips, the whole deal have been killin' me for the past two weeks and there is no sign of this little lady making her grand appearance any time soon...
Same here! It has gotten progressively worse - but he needs to hang in there for at least 2 more weeks. When I wake up in the middle of the night, there is so much pressure I can tell he is lower than he used to be.
