I am 24 weeks pregnant with twin girls. I can live with them zooming around kicking and punching while i'm lay9ing down at night trying to sleep...the only thing i cannot put up with anymore is the hip pain.
it is excrutiating. i will go to sleep on one side of my body- and wake up 40 mn later in such pain in my hip that i can hardly turn to my other side. So, i will turn to my other side, and wake up again about an hr later in the same pain, just onthe other hip.
PLEASE HELP ME. i cant sleep on my back/stomach...i can barely sleep on my sides...
i have tried the pillow in between my knees- and it does not help. Sleep has become a distant memory--and i'm starting to target my snoring husband!!!!! lol...

Hip pain is normal during pregnancy. According to the American Pregnancy Association, gentle stretches such as those used in yoga may be helpful for easing hip pain. Additionally, Warm baths and compresses can be helpful in alleviating hip pain during pregnancy. Swimming or exercising in the water may also help relieve the hip pain. In fact, swimming is a doctor-recommended exercise for pregnant women. Being in the water helps take the pressure off the joints. Sitting and sleeping in a good position and posture is also important. The risky hip replacement surgery is rarely an option for pregnant women. Watch out for flawed hip devices like the recalled DePuy hip replacement devices.
