I got this last pregnancy and now this pregnancy. It's unbearable! I wake up every hour or so feeling like someone has smashed my hips and outer thighs with hammer!
I see an Osteo and do Pilates and I'm okay during the day, but not at night. Last pregnancy I used to put our foam couch cushions on my side of the bed. I'll try that again.
An Osteo friend said ice the area before bed, rather than using heat.
Also the pain completely went away after I had my baby last time.
