okay, so this has happened a couple times now, and every time it happens I'm just left going ... W.T.F.??

I suffer from pretty severe pelvic pain. Enough that it makes it hard for me to walk and has put me in tears more than once lately.. I've had it for quite a long time.

With that being said, every time I get into an extended bout of BH...my hip pain disappears. What in the heck? Anyone else go through this? I mean, I'm not complaining...it just doesn't make any sense. But for a couple hours after a bad bout, without fail, my hip pain goes away almost completely.

Tonight I had 23 BH (every other one was 50+ seconds long and painful) in one hour. Then it petered off to roughly every 10 minutes...and sure enough, no hip pain.

Whats going on in there?!

Hmm. I guess the contractions are taking the pressure off of your hips?

Do you have the hip pain when you're not pregnant?

I wonder if your body is prioritizing pain signals? Or helping the hip pain go away so that you can focus on contractions?

I have chronic pain in one of my hands and I have a lot of trouble using it for every day things. My husband said he was blown away with everything I could do with my hand once I was in active labor. It bothered me a little bit but it was dulled by a more important task at the time. Maybe something like that is going on? Either way I hope that you can enjoy a little bit of the relief.

You know I had horrible hip pain the last couple months of my daughter's pregnancy, and I remember freaking out about how it will effect me in labor. And about a week or maybe 2 before I had her it went away, weirdest thing. I can only guess that it's maybe the relaxin and the flood of hormones that prep your body for birth. Either way I certainly did not mind lol.

No. The hip pain is totally during this pregnancy only.

The only thing about that idea is the fact that the pain is gone even after the contractions are done. Maybe its just let over? Hasn't kicked back into gear yet?

IF the hip pain would completely disappear, I'd be a lot happier about carrying her as long as need be. LOL

maybe the contractions are causing the baby to put pressure on the nerves and making your pain spots numb?

Hard to say, I guess. I was wondering if maybe she was pressing on a nerve (causing the pain) and then the contractions caused her to shift a bit, relieving the pain, at least temporarily. At any rate, it's odd.

I was similar to Anya - I had really bad hip pain with my first and was so worried about it affecting me in labor. Mine was so bad I could barely walk. It was primarily on my left side. I ended up going to an orthopedist and getting a cortisone shot after 37 weeks. It helped a lot. Then, after the baby was born, it went away within a couple of days. This time my pain is not as bad. But some days are better than others.
