    Hi kelli, Sorry to hear you are in pain!

    I have had some pains whilst turning or standing up etc...I was just putting it down to the ligaments etc stretching! I dont have any problems with hips yet though?

    I am sure you are doing the right thing by using a pillow at night..maybe you could just mention it to your health care provider and just check it's nothing serious like the beginnings of symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD) or diatasis symphysis pubis (DSP), a pelvic disorder related to pregnancy.

    i get cramps (for lack of way to describe it) right at the underwear line for the legs are. and sometimes a bit higher. I get the cramps when i am sleeping or when i sneeze. i also thought it to be the "stretching".

    i am also into my 17th week and last week was horrible to sleep- this sleeping on my side thing just sucks- for about three days my hips were killing me- it felt like a whale had been laying on them all night- it was very uncomfortable- i have never felt these before- usually i get radical charlie horses later on in pregnancy- good luck- hopefully they will go away when your body gets use to your changing body and sleeping position-

    Aches and pains are quite normal throughout pregnancy, purely because your body is changing so much.

    As with any pain though I would make sure you mention it to your midwife/doctor so that they are aware of it and on the small chance that the pain is more serious than you think.

    The aches and pains are definately starting to affect me. I have a pinched nerve that has left my left shoulder a bit sore. It's hard to get comfy at night. Pre-preggo I was a belly sleeper! Not anymore! I miss it! I'm just thankful that my sciatica subsided because that was the worst pain in my opinion, so far!
