If its what I am thinking, I would get it when I fell asleep on my back. Cat poses helped.

From what I can recall, some hormones in pregnancy that open up the pubic symphysis are responsible for joint pain, especially in the hips, back, knees etc.

Try doing some sciatic stretches (you can modify by putting a rolled up yoga mat under your pelvis), and make sure you rest and take the pressure off your pelvis, so lay down rather than sit. I had really terrible pelvic pain around about 26 weeks give or take, and I just had to take it easy for a few days. I also worked with my chiropractor who realigned my hips and pelvic girdle which really helped a lot.

Your joints are becoming really loose because of the relaxin hormone, but not every woman gets that kind of pain. Unfortunately the best you can do is just ride it out and rest up when you can! I also found that even though heat felt really good, ice packs actually worked better for me. 15 minutes every hour. Also, epsom salt baths were amazing before bed!

Sounds llike me!

I have a SI (sacro-iliac) joint dysfunction – basically, my SI joint on the left side is locked. This causes extreme pain, much different than typical pregnancy pain. When I go from standing to sitting or lying down, the joint locks, and the pain is so bad that I can’t put any pressure on my leg.

I’ve just started going to the chiropractor for this problem. Hopefully you can find something that helps, too!

@ellebeerob:  Mine definitely flared up when I went from stationary to moving (particularly getting out of bed/standing up from seated position). It’s like you described, really intense pain, couldn’t put pressure on my leg at all (mine was my right side). I almost fell over a few times it was so bad. It doesn’t stick out to me though going from standing to moving, but I don’t work at a job where I have to stand a lot, so that’s likely why. I hope the chiro is able to help you and your pain is eased soon! Remember to drink lots of water after your appointment to help flush your system 🙂
