Even I have the same problem. My hip pain is so severe that I can't put weight on my right leg. I cant even move my leg, I can't get out of bed , I can't roll over in bed. It stops my breath when I get that pain. It is as if some major nerve is being pressed by that baby. My due date is november 25th. But I don't think I can wait that long with such severe pain.

I had back pain like you have hip pain in my last several weeks...there were some exercises that helped, but mainly, baby being born is a natural cure...

I'm not sure I'm going to be much help in terms of making you feel better- except that it's normal to be extremely (and I mean extremely) uncomfortable during the last several weeks of pregnancy. As you are at 32 weeks- you're just a couple months away from delivering... or you could possibly deliver sooner. During the third trimester it becomes very difficult to sleep or move around. As you get closer to 40 weeks you'll be so glad to NOT be pregnant anymore!

As for the pain in your hips- that probably has to do with hormones. As you get closer to delivering, your body starts producing more hormones to loosen up the joints in your hips. This can cause a lot of discomfort. For me, when I was pregnant, if I moved a certain way the nerve in my leg would almost get "stuck" (I'm not sure how to describe it), and I would have to move my leg a different way. It was really painful. In order to even get out of bed I literally had to roll over to my side and push myself up to a sitting position. Sometimes when I walked my hip would just kind of "give out". I've had 4 pregnancies and with each pregnancy it got worse. Since you described your baby is laying low- she's probably right on one of the nerves in your hip-- causing the surge of pain.

Ask your doctor if it's okay for you to take some tylenol to ease the pain. That's usually safe to take during pregnancy. Maybe invest in a body pillow? Or sleep with a couple of pillows between your legs to help with support. Good luck!

It sounds to me that the baby is pressing on a nerve in your pelvis. Get on all fours and gently rock. If this does not work then get on all fours and squat onto your elbows, leaning forward. This should take all the pressure off your pelvis. If the pain comes back after half an hour or so then ring the midwife and see if she has any other suggestions.

A friend of mine went to a chiropractor when she was far along to get her baby to move.

I have problems with my legs not very much my hip. Ive heard that sometimes the baby sits on your siatic( i think that is how you spell it) nerve and that its very uncomfortable. Try getting the baby to move, I used ice cubes when she would get real low down or by having sex.

Maybe you could try spending some time on your back with your hips and legs raised (like you would try and do to move the baby from a breach position) and hopefully that would shift her to relieve some pressure.
