I am very stiff from my thigh/hip area down through my legs on the right side. Its hard sometimes to even take off my pants on that side as I need to bend and move and it hurts (not a ton but more than usual and I dont have this issue with the left side at all) I feel stiff on that side all the time and sometimes feel like Im walking weird even. is this sciatica? I never experience this with Drake so not sure if its that or what. I just want to know if this is because of Cashew or something Im going to have to deal with after they are born even. Sometimes it runs through my leg and it hurts. What is this?

I've been having similar pains. I thought it was from not moving much do to being sick. But maybe not.

It sounds just like what I have. It's called SI Joint Dysfunction. Basically the hormone called relaxin has caused the joint where your hip connects to your spine to become loose, and that causes a lot of pain. I had it with DD and I went to a chiropractor every two weeks for months, and it never helped. I've got it worse this time, but I'm not wasting money on a chiropractor. Basically the chiropractor can try to pop things back into place, but it's just going to come right back out again. The only thing you can really do is take Tylenol when you're really hurting, use heat on it, and rest. Walking aggravates it, unfortunately, and stairs are the worst. When you're sitting, avoid crossing your legs, that makes it worse too. Sucks, but it'll go back to normal once the baby is born.
