Sore hips = relaxin

I have absolutely nothing to post today. I'm still pregnant, I'm still pretty happy, I'm still listening to the .wav file of the baby's heartbeat several times a day.

But since I have to post, I will mention that I recently learned from my yoga instructor that the sore hips I've been having lately are quite common in pregnancy, and could be due to relaxin, the hormone that causes your ligaments to, well, relax. So that the baby can exit and all.

She said she experienced the same thing in her pregnancy, and that massage really helped. This means I will have to give in and do something I've been avoiding for months: pay someone to rub my ass.
