Very Common: Your pregnancy hormones also relax your joints & ligaments and usually this complaint is more common in the third trimester when the baby drops & pushes the pelvis apart. It's a normal sensation and if painful or severe, a maternity support garment is usually helpful. Take care and good luck with your pregnancy.
