I have two boys... the first one I had when I was 22 (he's 18) and I started that pregnancy at 240 pounds. The second one I had when I was 38 (he's 2) and I started that pregnancy at 140 pounds. Now I'm 16 weeks preggers with another boy and I'm 40 and I started this pregnancy at 195 pounds. With both previous pregnancies at exactly the 16 week mark... no matter my age or weight.... I started having hip joint pain.... BAD hip joint pain. It starts out on one side feeling like someone someone hit me in the butt with a baseball bat.... then it switches sides back and forth for a few weeks and then both sides become excrutiating and next thing you know I can't even walk. It's so bad that I can hardly walk from my bed to the bathroom! So this time I was hoping against hope that it wouldn't happen again.... and yesterday.... like clockwork.... the night before I turned 16 weeks.... I feel the baseball bat thing in my right hip. UGH! I think this time I'm for sure going to ask my OB if I can maybe do physical therapy.... I'm for sure asking him for a wheelchair and a handicapped sign and I'm gonna have to start doing yoga (which seems to help a little). Does anyone else have this issue?
