  • I get the worst pain in my hips and toss and turn all night long I was told it is from my joints and bones loosening up to prepare for the arrival of your little one, but the pain in my hips is unbearable!!

  • sounds sciatic nerve pain. One of the reasons I spent the last 2 months sleeping in a recliner. It totally sucks but there's nothing to do for it other than try different positions. Getting on your hands and knees for a while can sometimes get baby off the nerve though.
