I've heard a lot of women on here talk about having the hip and pelvic pain from the pelvis spreading, but up until about a week ago, I didn't think mine did anything. I don't know if it's just from being a first timer or because I've got wide hips to begin with. In any case, about a week ago I noticed my hips hurting a lot more and my pelvis cracking. Yep, like I'd crack my neck or my knuckles, my pelvis cracks. The first time it happened was in the middle of the night when I stretched out my legs, I froze for a second waiting for an explosion of pain, but nope. Felt fine. It's pretty weird!
Anyone else just now starting to feel some spreading and shifting?
I try not to think too much about my hips/butt ... they are a sore topic when I'm NOT pregnant But I do feel like baby is starting to work his/her way down and move things around. I was having sharp pains earlier on from nerve pains in my hips, but lately I'm just more achy, especially if I sit or stand in the same position too long.

My hips are sore at the end of the day as if I had done a long run. My hips pop more often now too and it feels so good when it does. I usually try to stretch my hips at night before going to bed. I remember the hip pain being unbearable with my first pregnancy
My pelvic pain has been bad a long time. I can barely move at the end of the day. I'm pretty sure it has spread enough that a small whale could swim on thru. Too bad nothing is coming out that way haha

Haha. The weird popping/cracking in my pelvis (it's literally between my legs) is so weird! I've cracked my hip before and it's not the same, but it feels fine and doesn't hurt. It's just that I never knew it was possible. Lol. I'm glad that something is going on though!
Arthur's head is right in my pelvis I learned today, which explains all the pelvic pressure and pain I've been feeling lately. I told the doctor I was going to ask him about my pelvic pressure, but after the ultrasound I figured out it was his head. I'm SOOO uncomfortable, especially when I'm in bed and need to roll over, it's like intense pain in my pelvic region. And then add to the fact that he's resting right on my bladder...*sigh* I would not be sad if this child came early LOL
