I know it is common later in pregnancy to experience difficulty sleeping because of belly comfort logistics. I’m having a hard time with hip pain. Around 3:00 every morning, I’m waking up from strong pain in my left hip. After I lie flat on my back for 15 – 20 minutes, I can usually sleep on my right side for a few more hours, but it takes a couple hours of walking around in the morning to really get over it.
I’ve tried the diagram in all the books – pillow between the legs, and a smaller one under the belly. That has actually made the pain worse. I haven’t found anything to really help with it. Did anyone else have this problem later in pregnancy? If so, what worked for you?
Even “What to Expect . . .” doesn’t have anything on hips. It has leg and lower back pain, but nothing about hips, and really nothing about pain during sleep, which I thought was odd, until I couldn’t find it anywhere else either. So, any suggestions or helpful tips? I appreciate it.
