I Feel Like An Old Lady

I'm 13 weeks pregnant and I'm having this horrible pain in at the lower left side of my spine...just above my butt. I can't stand in one place for very long because I just end up stiff and having to lunge myself into movement. hahaha it's awful! My husband says that I look like I'm 9 months pregnant when I'm only three. Is there any relief or at least anyone else experiencing this?

I am also 13 weeks and have been having "old lady" aches and pains since I was 8 weeks. I have read that Relaxin, the hormone that allows our bodies stretch to accomodate hte growing baby peeks at 14 weeks so I am hoping I start feeling alittle less achy. Sometimes it is my back sometimes my hips, sometimes even down into my v____a (tmi, sorry) lol! I also feel like I have the waddle down already! I have an 11 yo and 9 yo and when I was pregnant with them I think I felt like this at 8 months. I am 30 and live in Rhode Island

Yes girl.... I am experiencing this! My husband says I act like I am dying. I am only 24 and I complain about everything from insomnia to constipation to exhaustion and even pain in my v____a. We are not alone though!

I have had the same problems off and on for the entire pregnancy. I am 33 weeks. My advice is find a chiropractor and/or get a pregnancy ma__sage. Good luck!

Oh this is so funny. I just got up from the couch to go into the kitchen, and I couldn't get moving, I was holding my lower back and my hips were all out of place and I was groaning. My husband said "God, you look like my Granny!" I am 22 weeks along in my second pregnancy, and from experience, it only gets worse. Once the baby is born, however, it gradually gets better.

I've been complaining of the SAME FRIGGIN PAIN for a long while now. Always on my left side up and down my back. Sometimes It feels like my spine and hip are in a tug of war. I think it may(?) be the sciatic nerve. At least I *think* it's on the left side...heard it can really act up during pregnancy. I was "cleaning" (i.e. wiping down the counters and throwing stuff in the dishwasher; nothing major) the other day and was actually crying because the pain was so bad. I didn't even DO anything! No one else will help me with the housework, though, so I guess I'm stuck doing it for awhile. (le sigh...)

Well, I had the same issues at 9 weeks and I'm at 36 and it hasn't gotten better. Just wait till the pressure of the baby starts to add to it. I have to spread my legs wide and push myself up off the couch or chair or bed. I look so old! :)
