Hips popping
beckie_33 posted:
Has anyone else had a problem with your hips popping when walking? My hips pop all the time now when I walk and it's pretty painful at times. I've had to resort to using the motorized carts at the grocery store because of my hips. I feel silly using the motorized carts because I think there are so many other people that need it more than I do, but sometimes the pain is too much.

I'm 34 weeks today and I forgot to mention it to my doctor today.

the left side of my hip pops sometimes and it is quite painful. i am 28 weeks 2 days. i have been having a lot of hip joint pain, so bad to the point where it is painful for me to lie flat on my back or my sides.
beckie_33 replied to BabyJay24's response:
It's getting more difficult for me to sleep at night because of the hip pain. I find it a little more comfortable to sleep on a recliner some nights.

Try alternating between heat and ice on your hips. It helps me some.
