I've had a little popping if I move suddenly but I can't put any weight on my knees at the moment it feels like I'm kneeling on bone! I've been making sure I get my fill on calcium rich foods to try and combat it a bit and it has helped.

I've only really noticed this in my hips, but its quite sore and happens a lot at night when I'm trying to roll over in bed.
Probably it's because the ligaments are all
relaxed in pregnancy so your bones aren't so well supported. Maybe??

I just saw my mum this weekend and she asked if I had loose kneecaps! Apparently this was one of her earliest symptoms when pregnant - her kneecaps seemed more mobile than normal. It's down to the extra relaxin hormone loosening all your ligaments etc.

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
