Too early for hip pain?

I'm having a lot of hip pain and pains going down the backs of my legs. (I'm thinking it's my sciatic nerve) I experienced this with my first pregnancy but not until I was pretty far along. I'm only 20 weeks now. Isn't it a bit early to already be having these pains? I can just imagine how I'm going to feel in a couple of months!

  • Whoa, I didn't get that till around 32 weeks, but I'm sure it's possible. Baby must be in a funky position. omg I hated that sciatia so much, I'd have to stop dead in my tracks at work so I didn't fall over! Also when I'd drag my husband on long walks to try to get the baby out and barely be able to walk, I probably looked so dumb limping around!!!

  • Yeah, my sciatica started at 18-19 wks, even though I didn't know what it was yet. It's completely normal

  • I am starting to learn that there is no such thing as "normal" when it comes to pregnancy! No two babies are alike and no two pregnancies are alike either!

  • Yeah, I've only gained 3 pounds so it's from weight gain. I have a long journey ahead of me!

  • No, I don't think it's too early, medically speaking. Definitely too early for you to be putting up with, though! :)
