   I am almost 24 weeks pregnant with my second child and I am in so much pain it is ridiculous. It hurts in my hips and "down there". It is just achy all the time. No matter what I do I tried to keep active threw out the day then kind of in between activity like taking breaks and resting more then I even sat almost all day and nothing worked. It takes me so long to just sit up after laying down I am seriously considering sleeping in a chair from now on. Does anyone know what could be causing this and how to make it go away or even not as painful. Thank you in advanced.

I have no idea, never heard of that.  I would call your doctor and see what they have to say.  Good luck

I recommend pre-natal yoga or water aerobics.  Both help you stretch your muscles and shift your baby load around to a more comfortable position.  You might try getting down on your hands and knees and alternating arching and and slumping your back.

Hun you sound just like me, though mine started with my first. At 12 weeks with my first i went to er. I hurt so bad i couldn't move or get out of bed, Thought i was down with the flue with only body ache we'll i looked like an idiot the lady said your pregnant go home lol. I was in shock that at just 12 weeks i could hurt like i did and after that when i got up out of bed my back and lower stomach and ect. hurt so bad i couldn't walk if i sat down after walking or doing something i hurt so bad. With this pregnancy my 3rd it didnt hit me until 20 weeks i guess. My down there area feels like its gonna fall off it hurts like ive been having wild sex all day lol, my back hurts, my pelvic are is killing me. Unfortunately there isnt much to do other than hot baths, dont over due your self, and try a belly band i think it is something like that helps support your body from belly. Good luck

This is what my midwife recommends to make sure the baby is in a good position. Helps with back pain, may roll the baby to take pressure off some areas.

Yoga would be great too.

I had HORRIBLE hip pain when I was prego wtih my son. To the point I was crying and I can handle pain pretty well. I would try to sleep and 5 min later I was up bawling again. NOTHING made it go away. I tried back rubs, tylenol, getting on my knees, swimming, baths, sleeping on the floor, on the bed, sitting up laying down. I was miserable and the dr said it was normal. UGH!

Well I pretty much have the same issues.  The problem is your spine and your muscles are changing from day to day to accommodate the baby.  Your spine is being tilted backwards and your hips are opening wider.  Your hip extensor and flexor muscles are being stretched to capacity which is why you feels so much pain.  Prenatal Yoga is no more different than regular yoga.  If you do not belong to a gym see if there is a yoga class offered and pay each time you go.  Pilates is great too because it will help build up your transvers abdonomis muscles in your ab area which will help with the pushing.  Do a lot of stretching and yoga like movements.  It is likely your muscles are too tight.
