Hip Pain During Pregnancy

Pregnancy Pain Relief book to help you get out of Pain
Hip pain is really common during pregnancy. It can occur at any time during pregnancy, but is generally the most problematic in the third trimester.
Causes of Hip Pain During Pregnancy
- Increase in Hormones- Your body is running high with hormones such as progesterone and relaxin which have a loosening effect on your muscles, joints, and ligaments. This process helps prepare your body for childbirth, but also causes relaxation of tissues and joints that normally support your body.
- Structural Changes- Your body is changing each day. Your abdominal muscles and uterus are stretching, and your baby is growing inside you. This puts extra strain on your hips and pelvis to hold you up and changes your center of gravity. You are using your muscles in different ways and this can cause discomfort.
- Weight gain- As your pregnancy progresses you are gaining weight and this puts strain on your hips and pelvis, which are stretching and widening to make room for baby.
- Poor posture- Bending and sitting improperly can put extra pressure and tension on your hips as can standing for extended periods of time.
- Stress- Stress causes tension and stiffness in all parts of your body. With the extra pressure that maternity places on your hips and pelvis, hip pain is not uncommon. Try out some of our stress relieving tips.
- Round ligament- can create intermittent sharp pains in the hips, pelvis, and uterus along the inside of your hip bones. This type of pain is caused by stretching in the uterus putting pressure on the round ligament that holds it in place.
Preventing Hip Pain During Pregnancy
The following are things you can do to reduce the amount of hip pain you are experiencing. Sometimes it is not possible to eliminate the pain completely, but the following tips can help dramatically.
- Practice good posture- Stand with your hips and pelvis tucked in and your shoulders back and head up.
- Wear good shoes- high heeled shoes and shoes without support can contribute to hip pain.
- When sleeping or resting, lie on your side with your knees and hips bent. Try placing a pillow between your knees and one under your belly. This can take pressure off your hips and back. There are also some great pregnancy pillows that can help make you more comfortable.
- Try a pregnancy support belt.
- Practice safe lifting and bending- To lower your body, bend at the knees instead of the waist. Use your thigh muscles to push yourself up.
- If you will be standing for extended periods of time, try to keep one of your feet elevated on a low stool.
- Exercise regularly to strengthen your body and help support your increasing weight.
- Prenatal Yoga- is excellent for keeping your body moving and increasing mobility while decreasing pain.
- Be sure you are getting adequate calcium and magnesium in your diet.
- Get your partner or a friend to help you with techniques such as those in the Pregnancy Pain Relief book.
