This has just started up for me yesterday and today its so much worse. Like, they feel like they are going to pop out of place..

It also seems like this baby refuses to move upward.. like, I can feel tonnssss of stretching like he's running out of room in there or something lol and he refuses to move up. TMI but every time I go potty I feel like a lil limb is going to pop out lol

Anyone else??

Hmm... Not sure about baby and everything, but if you lay on your side and have DH gently compress your hips it can help relieve the stretching/pain. I hope it helps!

this one is staying super low..i swear esp when i take a bath or put my hand on my belly it goes into hiding super low/under my pelvic bone area. I also have found it increasingly difficult to get comfy with my hips ect to go to sleep

I think I am carrying low just because I can barely wear low rise jeans comfortably and every time I feel kicks/pokes it's way below belly button area, don;t know about hip pain but I have been having major RL pains lately.

I've carried all of my babies low, and it's miserable! But- I'm sure carrying high isn't much better because then I wouldn't be able to breathe. My hips ache, my vagina is sore, there is SO much pressure, I'm constantly peeing etc....

Oh the joys of pregnancy!

I carried Johnny low - and I could barely walk for the hip pain. Saw a chiropractor for about half of my pregnancy and never had another day of discomfort.

I have hip pain (like a stretching feeling) every now and again. I am for sure carrying lower this time around then with my previous 2.

I might seriously have to! I was walking around walmart today for like an hour looking for nails and stuff to hang artwork lol and ever since I got home.. if I try to walk around the house "normally" it is excruciating! I have to walk like a penguin to not be in pain ;\

Thanks for all the input ladies! I will have DH try the hip pressure thing tonight too Katie! lol

Definitely try the chiro. I have always carried low. I mean so low my Ob was surprised with #3. She was head down, engaged in my pelvis by 30wks. I would also try gentle stretches in the morning. I used to sit on the floor with my feet touching (butterfly style) and gently press my knees to the floor. It helped stretch the hips/pelvis. That and sleeping with a pillow between your legs to keep your hips more level....

Sounds like relaxin or sciatica! I have issues with both and it can get so bad it's hard to walk. Piriformis stretches help, so do pelvic rocks!

What does a chiro do?? I've never been but I had sciatica with Kaylee and I'm wondering if it's going to come on with this one too. Can they help with that? Is it safe??

I had physical therapy and it was great. She gave me stretches and showed me if you hit the area and massage it, it does get better. This time I'm carrying low like I have the hip pain and vajayjay pain but when you look at me it looks like the baby is high. I'm thinking ally organs moved north

Oh sciatica. It kills me every pregnancy. I've never gone to the chiro for it. I might try if it gets really bad this time.

I'm not carrying in my hips but I'm carrying in my back and I've got constant lower back pain and when I was having the braxton hicks yesterday it was just all in my back. Labor is gonna suck with this one if it's all back labor. Although now that I think about it, my hips do hurt if I'm sitting to long, who knows. I hope that the stretches help you Bonnie

Hopefully your hip pain is just your body/joints stretching. I would get really bad hip pain with my son for a day or two and then it would get better. it was like the baby was having a little growth spurt and it caused some extra relaxin hormones.

as far as carrying low, i can't relate, my son was in my chest the whole time i could feel him moving. The good news is that your baby is still really small, and can really only go so far. and it's starting to get some weight to it, so that's likely why you're feeling it more. As it gets bigger it may move up a bit for you.

I think I carried high from the start with my son but this baby is low. My hips and my vajajay ACHE. Like the feeling you get when you have the flu, they just ache. I'm hoping the baby moves up soon and I get some relief!

From what I've been able to find (thanks, Google!), chiro care can help relieve the pain caused by sciatica. I would stress to anyone considering it that they make sure that the provider they choose has experience working with pregnant women.

My chiro did what they call 'mechanical adjustments' as opposed to manual ones - it's like a little hammer that sends impulses to the spine and helps everything align. Doesn't hurt a bit! And it was a great way to get 10-15 minutes to chill out and relax every two weeks.

I was shocked at how effective it was; I was never a believer in chiropractic care. I'm sure that like everything else, it has varying degrees of effectiveness for different people, but it was a lifesaver for me! I was lucky in that my insurance did cover chiro care, so even though I had to pay cash for my appointments it went against my deductible.

Do they all pop your bones? I am not into popping. It's like nails on chalkboards for me.

That would be manual adjustments, which are NOT to be used during pregnancy.

Me! Mine have been bugging me for weeks. At first, I thought that I pulled a muscle or something. Nope. Just the joys of loosening joints! Unfortunately, there's not much that you can do. Try to rest a bit. Warm baths sometimes help me. Massage would be nice. I hope that you feel better!
