Hip pain relief

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey ladies! I know many of us are getting to that uncomfortable hip-pain-during-sleep point of the pregnancy and I wanted to share something that has helped me so so much this time around.  I bought a really thick foam mattress topper for my bed.  It makes a HUGE difference and DH even noticed a difference in his comfort during sleep.  I just got a $20 one from Target and I bet if your hips are really bad two stacked on top of eachother would help out.  I'm sure it probably won't last but for now I am so thankful my hips aren't aching every night.  Here's to better sleep for all of us!

I've seriously thought about this. I really, really, like my super firm mattress, but I really think that if I had a topper my hips wouldnt hurt so bad.

Good thinking! It never occurred to me to get one of those to help out. I always get horrible hip pain as I get further along.

hip pain has hit my HARD this weekend, but our mattress is already a super soft pillowtop. i've had to start sitting on the couch with my special pillow between my legs instead of just sleeping with it. :(

I wasn't sure what this was until I slept on a boat this weekend on a thin mattress..... ahhhhhhhh the soreness. It's totally all about the soft bed.

Last pregnancy my hips ached constantly... I now have squishy egg crate and a pillow top and (don't want to jinx it!) no hip pain this time around, as of yet...also no heartburn!  It's gotta be a boy this time, right??
