I'm almost 20wks and am having bouts of really uncomfortable ligament pain. I also seem to get quite uncomfortable braxton hicks at the same time. It can all be quite painful!
If you've had it or have it now, did/does anything help?
This afternoon a couldn't even walk properly! I don't even have much of a bump yet!!

Does it really help though, not just temporary relief?
DH is really sus when it comes to Chiro. I've had good experiences but he's not keen on me going when pregnant.

My hip pain was relieved immediately but as I do high risk things while pregnant (like lunging to step into the car while strapping kids in, pushing full shopping trolly) I did need retreatment, I'm sure in a perfect world it would of been fine if I was able to be more careful but that's life! I do get the odd times now when I have hip issues (I had a displaced hip recently) so it does flare up but its my understanding that this is due to prolonged breastfeeding and lowish estrogen levels much like you experience in pregnancy and of course I still have to do all of those high risk activities..well not all of them but that particular one is too fun to miss out on haha

Depends on how bad it is as to how long the chiro treatment lasts, and also as hof mentioned how much you avoid activities that exacerbate it. Physio can also be beneficial.

Ouch! I had it during my pregnancies at different points. Go see a Physio that specialises in pregnancy care. They can talk to you about care, possibly support aides like the shorts and exercises. I did pilates during mine which helped immensely

Subbing as I went to a physio today for my pain and she said it is round ligament pain and pelvic girdle pain in my case.. I'm 15 weeks. I'll come back and go into more detail

Last pregnancy I found an osteo that specialises in pregnancy and he helped me immensely. I'm getting the pain already at 14 weeks this time so I think I'll be going back to see him again. I also find that wearing a belly belt support helps and sleeping with a pillow between my legs. Some days though it hurts so badly that I can hardly walk. All worth it in the end!!
