why do i have hip pain at night?

I am 19 wks pregnant. I am experiencing horrible hip pain at night. I have never been a side-sleeper, so that may be part of it, but I have a temperpedic mattress! I do have a job where I am on my feet all day (animal nursing), but I have had this kind of job for 15 years. If I sleep on my back, my hips don't hurt, but I've been told not to sleep on my back because it's not good for the baby. I have to get up in the middle of the night and walk around for about 5 minutes so that I can go back and lay down again. Has anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions? I do sleep with a pillow between my knees, and one underneath my stomach.

Sleeping on your side is better. My wife is 6 months along and her docter has told her several time to sleep on her side. The nerve thing sounds good, but definitely check with your doctor.

It could be the shoes you are wearing during the day. You need to wear really good shoes. It helps with the hips to keep them in line. If you wear flat shoes during your pregnancy it will affect your pelvic and make you walk a lot different and affect the stress on the pelvic and also the back and hips. So try to... More

Try getting a Boppy pillow that wraps around your stomach goes in between your legs and it helps support your belly and helps straighten out your spine... More

you should sleep on your back, and if you have a blue heating pad use that for your hip. and if you have any neck pillow use that after.
