  • your hips move apart to make your pelvis a wider place for baby to pass through, you are getting very close. only a few weeks left. its unfortunate that there is nothing you can do about it, good luck

  • This happens to me, too (I'm 35 weeks, with my 4th). It really sucks. Propping pillows between my knees and at the small of my back, and switching sides a lot helps when I sleep (although not all the way).

    Towards the end of your pregnancy, your body releases a hormone that relaxes and stretches the ligaments of all of your joints, but especially your pelvic ligament, in preparation for birth. The overall loosening of your ligaments can cause your joints to feel weak. Also, as your baby descends into your pelvic cavity, you may find yourself prone to sharp, stabbing pains at the base of your spine or in the middle of your pelvic bone, making it uncomfortable to walk. The baby's head pressing against the nerves and blood vessels in the pelvis may also cause cramps in the thighs.

    If you are concerned, you can ask your doc, but this is what he'll say ;) GL momma!

  • Ah the joys of pregnancy =) Yes your body is preparing for delivery but that doesn't mean it's right around the corner either. You very possibly have 5-7 weeks left. I found yoga to be very helpful. It can be a little difficult with that big ole' belly in the way but it's worth it. Also my chiropractor was my best friend. I didn't get any chiropractic care with my first and I saw a tremendous difference with my second pregnancy when I was going.
