S is 18 weeks and for the last couple of weeks my joints have been really stiff and sore. It's especially bad in my hips, so much so that getting up from the floor is really difficult and I'm finding stairs hard to manage. It's also in my hands and I struggle to get the lid off of the kettle!
Did anyone else have this? Is it just another delightful side effect of pregnancy and childbirth that no-one tells you about?

My sister has developed arthritis after having her son nearly a year ago, she had some similar symptoms. Hopefully it's not that but might be worth a trip to gp x

I had this after O, mainly my knees and lower back. It has got better as time has gone on but I found the main cause was changing his bum on the floor and then bending to pick him up. If any concern give the docs a call and they can run some bloods to rule out arthritis etc x

Eek, thanks both. I should probably stop putting off going to the doctors then!
