There is a huge change in the position/angle of your lower back and hips during the third trimester to accommodate the growing baby and uterus.

This relaxing of the joints, increased weight gain and hormonal changes all contribute to normal pelvic and back pain.

Even as early as the first trimester, your hips, pelvis and pubic bone are already preparing for childbirth.

Rest, Tylenol, pregnancy support belts, warm baths and stretching can all help.

If you’re not sure whether the pain you are having is normal and the suggestions above don’t help – ask your doctor.
