Many women have pain in their hips while pregnant, and are told there is nothing that can be done about it. This is not true.
We're talking more than a simple backache. This is a deep hip pain. Other symptoms include: pain when standing on one leg; difficulty walking after sitting or lying down; pain when rolling over in bed; tenderness in the pubic area; sciatica.
