Aching in upper thighs @37 weeks.

Does anyone have any experience of this? I suffer with SPD, but this is a different pain. It's muscular, and feels as if I've been doing squats, or cycling a lot. It's right at the top, front of my thighs & has now started in my buttocks...uncomfortable, but annoying more than anything. Any ideas/suggestions/experiences to share please?xx

Hi! I have SPD too, am 26 weeks. My thighs hurt badly, they ache. I also have pain in my buttocks now and then. GP said last week it will be the pressure on the discs in my back causing this. The pain in my thighs I was told is part of SPD x

OMG honeypops 37 weeks!!!

This is how my labour started with E!! I felt really achey in the top of my thighs and was fidgety and just couldn't keep still. Maybe try a nice soak in the bath?

Am so excited for you!!
Good luck

Thanks ladies. Samuels_mum - don't know where it's gone Gail1977, I've had spd all the way through, and this pain is definitely different, although it may possibly be related. I didn't experience it in my last pregnancy with spd either...More of a muscular ache than the boney (?sp) ache I'm used to-and completely different area too :?

Jojo, I was thinking maybe that, but not so sure...My last labour was back-to-back, so completely different. No other real symptoms either :roll: I would try a soak in the bath, but can't bear them, and would probably need to call the fire-brigade to get me out again :lol: Getting out of bed is bad enough now...1, 2, 3... :lol: xx

hey hun, am g/c obviously lol can't believe how quickly your pregnancy has gon e (well for us in BIJ anyways! lol).

amongst everything else making me feel crap in my pregnancy i had this aswell. it developed into such a bad ache i'd be crying with pain at times. when i moved and got a nice (and helpful!) new midwife i asked her about it and she referred me to a back specialist. i only saw them once because of how far along i was (36/37 weeks) but i had pressure on my spine and had twisted it by trying to compensate for the pressure. they said normally they would've gave me a back support and physio to help but because it was so late there was no point :roll:

the thing i found relieved it the most was lying as straight as i could and then bending my legs up as much as i could a few times. i know i was shown a few things to do to try and help it but this is the only one i remember helping at all :lol:

hope we're seeing a birth story and piccy of new bump soon!
