It's always left hip/butt pain right now. I stay home with my toddler and am 7 months pregnant as well. My husband is a DO and in his first year of residency so he's working a lot. It seems like pain gets worse when he finally has time off. I wonder if it's a conditioned response; I feel isolated/overworkerd during the week and when he's home for a few days I just want to be taken care of and the pain makes for a good excuse? It's frustrating because I think I know why it's happening but can't seem to stop it. Any ideas on how to break the cycle?
