my hips hurt throught the night.
I know it's only because I,m sleeping on my side, so far it's not bothering me through the day.
I have a body pillow and althoght i love it, it's not helping with the hip issue.
Is this just something I need to put up with or can you give options?

I would go and see a physio, you may need some additional support

I've never find that anything really helped my site hips during pregnancy but my sister saw a physio who recommended she have a warm shower before bed then do a particular stretch for her hips and she swears it helped so I'd probably recommend going to see a physio too, preferably one specialising in women's health/pregnancy.

I get this too, but I also get some muscular pain with extended walking - went and saw a women's health physio and I have mild sacroiliac joint dysfunction, she did some soft tissue work and told me what to avoid doing to irritate the joint. She also suggested a soft mattress topper to help with the discomfort overnight, or even just a doona on top of the bed to soften it.
I find a body pillow between the knees makes it worse, cause I end up staying in the one position for too long. A normal pillow works better, or sometimes I scrunch up a bit of the doona and use that instead.

Came in from 'we are discussing', hope you don't mind if I comment. I had dodgy hips throughout my pregnancy, it wad very bad in the third trimester. Physio was a godsend. I wore a tubi grip band around my belly to help support the baby weight, in addition to a support band around my hips. It was annoying and uncomfortable but nowhere as bad as the hip pain.

I have SPD and was also getting hip pain during the night. Painful enough to wake me up. I agree with the PP who said the pillow between the legs actually made it worse for me.
I've been getting relief from stuffing a soft pillow under my bump to support it at night, and changing which side I am sleeping on if I wake during the night. Doesn't always work though
(ETA not my DIG, so hope you don't mind me popping in with my 2 cents...)

I've been suffering badly with this most of my pregnancy. I have a really thick, soft mattress topper on already, and nothing I have tried has worked. I'm accepting it as just a part of the whole experience, it wakes me during the night about every 30-60 minutes I would say, and I have to change sides because of the pain.
Rarely do I have any problems with my hips during the day, it's just the pressure of side sleeping with the extra weight I guess.
I sleep with a belly bean - a comfy cushion under the bump and nestled into my back, it's lovely, but it doesn't help with this.
ETA: I've just found out that singleton mums are probably only just getting uncomfortable to sleep around the 30 week mark! Lol... I haven't slept properly in more months than I care to count. Now that I have to get up to go to the bathroom literally 6 times a night (from zero pre-pg) I don't bother caring anymore

I suffer the same thing...
I've been doing pre-natal yoga, and it really helps with all the sore bits including leg cramps and sore hips.
I only do it once a week, and dont have the pain at night after a class.... so i've started doing the moves myself at night before I go into bed... and it works really well!
There are a couple of YouTube prenatal yoga videos I watch to remind myself of the moves.
I'd recommend that.
