So im 26 and this is my first child and im 22weeks..I have always had very minor hip pain in the winter months since i was a teen..but since I have been pregnant I realized the pain and uncomfortableness has gotten worse over the past few months since ive been pregnant..in my hands, arms feet, legs, hips.. but its the worst in my hands to the point i sometimes cant hold a pen. I told my dr. and she kinda looked shocked and said that is not a normal pregnancy symptom and didnt really go any further.. im wondering if anyone has experienced or maybe knows something i cant find about pregnancy induced arthritus? Thank You

it will make your arthritis worse if you have arthritis. Pregnancy won't cause you to suddenly be arthritic. It can also worsen carpal tunnel and tendonitis. It effects all auto immune disorders because of the hormones.

:/ I had all sorts of pains when I was pregnant with my first. When I was little, I dislocated a hip and that acted up most of the pregnancy...I have very mild carpal tunnel, but that became excruciating while I was pregnant. All my joints were always swollen and angry, I don't think that it's NOT normal, maybe just uncommon?

Thanks lady's I appreciate your reply's.. I guess my Dr. has decided to send me to a specialist to make sure there isnt a auto immune thing that is just now flaring up.. Im just happy that something is being done cause not knowing why your in so much pain really sucks..
