I am 36 weeks pregnant and having severe hip pain. I can barely walk and the pain came on suddenly. I also have noticed some lower back pain.

The two most common causes would be a condition known as transient osteoporosis of pregnancy which often affects the hip, or a sciatica which is also more common in pregnancy. If it is that severe as you describe, I would let your doctor know immediately. ...Read more

36 weeks pregnant, severe constant hip pain, occasional cramping, and very painful constant back pain, have tried moving around, wont go away. Help?

Labor?: You are term pregnant. Any unusual problems should be assessed by the obstetrician. Do you feel your baby moving? That is important. Bleeding? Fluid passed? You can get a lot of aches and pains as you pelvis prepares for delivery. Things that never stretched out before may be starting to loosen in preparation so it may be no big deal but if you are worried go get it checked out. ...Read more

Im 17 weeks pregnant, having really bad hip pain. How long does it take for your hips to spread to where they are supposed to be?

Pelvis: The pelvis bones and structures will slowly change while pregnant and then at 9 months with the delivery can accommodate the birthing process. Small changes take place and your hips and skeletal system will not dramatically enlarge. You may be noticing more "fat and muscle" around your thighs and hips as your pregnancy moves forward. Best wishes. ...Read more

Is it normal to have hip pain at 36 weeks preg I can barely walk when I wake up in the morning or I been limping. Started few days ago. Can't sleep!:(?

PG/A pain in the ass: Late stage pregnancy can be a "pain in the "hip" as the engaged fetal part (head or bottom) is now putting pressure deep in the pelvis on the nerves that run to the hip. Moreover, the cartilage interconnections between the joints of the pelvic/sacral bones are "stretching" to allow facilitated childbirth at term. Try a heating pad and if "flexible" yoga moves designed for pregnant women for relief ...Read more

5 weeks pregnant n hv lower back + hip pain everyday. They said it normal. But when do the pain considered abnormal?

Varies: Unfortunately back pain and pain running into the hip or leg is fairly common during pregnancy and is often relieved when the baby is born. Warning signs for a more serious condition which may require more aggressive treatment would include numbness or weakness in the leg, bowel or bladder function changes, or a profound limp when walking on the hip itself.
