I have been having the worst knee pain since I had Eli. It's like when I kneel my kneecaps feel like they're on fire! When I touch them it feels like they're bruised, but they aren't. I've never had any trouble with my knees ever so I assume it must be related to pregnancy. My ankles hurt too- not quite as bad but it's noticeable.

I went to my doc last week and he said that during late pregnancy your body releases a hormone called relaxin which loosens your ligaments to help you carry the baby as it gets heavier and helps to prepare your body for the delivery. Apparently sometimes it takes a while for the hormone to leave your body and it causes your joints to be weak.

So he assumes that this is what's going on and he has me on a few weeks of an anti-inflammatory. If that doesn't work then I have to get steroid shots in my knee

Is anyone else having trouble with their joints?

Yes! I've been noticing that my hips and my knees and my ankles will get really stiff and painful whenever I get up from sitting for awhile. If I sit cross legged for too long it is sooo bad. Even my fingers get painful if I hold them in a tensed position (like when I'm pumping) for long. I figured it was related to pregnancy but I sure wish it would go away soon.

Yep my hips are killing me, but in a totally different way from how my hips killed me during pregnancy, if that makes sense!

Yes! Omg my knees! I thought it was from bed rest and my muscles just got weak. They seem somewhat better than a couple weeks ago though.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb...I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made...My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together...Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139: 13-16
