anyone experience hip pain around 24 weeks?

I just noticed that my right hip hurts a little when I sleep on it. Is that a normal thing? I always hear about back pain, but not hip pain.

  • That was normal for me. Now if I sleep on one side to long it hurts really bad when I wake up and all through out the day. I am no longer pregnant and it seems like it has gotten worse now.

  • Because hip pain is caused by the normal physical and hormonal changes of pregnancy, prevention of this uncomfortable sensation is improbable. However, medical experts suggest ways to minimize the pain and discomfort. According to the American Pregnancy Association, gentle stretches such as those used in yoga may be helpful for easing hip pain. Hip replacement surgery is not needed in this case. The controversial, recalled DePuy hip replacement devices should be watched out for.
