    Default Severe pain in left hip- 30 weeks pregnant

    Dear ladies, I dont know what to do. I have been having this pain in my left hip for weeks now and it slowly started getting worst. Even at night I am sleeping mostly on my right side because my left hip just wouldnt let me be!

    Today its specially bad; so bad that even gentle walking is hurting. Google says its fine...its normal bla bla. What shall I do? I have already taken a tylenol (a paracetamol composition) to hep with pain but needless to say after 4 hours the pain started again.

    I am doing exercises, applied a hot pack, took warm bath, tried couple of postures in yoga but nothing seems to work.

    I am drowning in pain today. HELP!

    Yes call docs asap or go to an 24hrs walk in centre. Not the hospital emergency. If you look up on your insurance website you will have centres other than the hospitals

    It could be that the weight of the baby/fluid is triggering some sciatica. Check with the doctor. If you do have sciatica, acupuncture is a good treatment to get rid of it.

    I guess you have tried this already, but do you have a body pillow to use at night? The books that i have read recommend sleeping on your side with a pillow between your logs. It is said to ease hip pain to some extent.

    I am not yet at 30 weeks, so dont have any practical knowledge of this.. just sharing what i read.

I did go to the doctor yesterday. She is repeating the same old story saying that my body is preparing itself for labor and hence hips start to widen. This is the reason its causing so much pain. She was asking me to take painkillers every 4 hours. I was trying to avoid them…oh well.

    I told my yoga instructor about this and she did show me a few poses. Its supposed to relive some pain. Lets see.

    Hi Rakhi,

    Congrats to you. I had this pain during all of my pregnancies.It is because your pelvic bones move to accomodate your growing LO. Like you I too try to avoid painkillers. Multivitamins (if you are not already taking them ) and cat cow yoga pose helped me immensely.

    All the Best!
