strange pain?

I have been having a pain in my inner thigh where my leg attaches to my body. (only way I can think to explain it..) its not like my hip is out of socket its more like my tendons/ligaments etc are "locking" up... I will be walking fine and all of a sudden its a sharp pain and its like I can't take another step. (which was a major issue at work today) anyone else experince this and if so anyway to make it feel better (or at least keep me able to walk)

My guess is baby's position. Do you have access to a pool? Could you sit on an exercise ball? See a chiro? I think any of those would help a lot.

the only thing that I have found that has helped with my hip pain was heat. maybe a heating pad to the area would help?

I have had random shooting pains there similar to what you described, but it typically is very short lived and doesn't keep happening. Definitely could be baby's position though...

yup - I have it in that exact spot. Mine is very short lived (like a few seconds), but I'm pretty sure it's baby hitting a nerve. Does yours last much longer? Maybe baby sits on the nerve.

I had that exact same thing the other day! I took one of my kids' huge bouncy balls and sat on it for a while, took a warm bath, and took a Tylenol and finally was able to walk normally again. I think it was mostly do to overdoing it that day. Hope you feel better!
