Is it normal to have so much discomfort in the pelvic area at 33 weeks?

Is it normal to have so much discomfort in the pelvic area at 33 weeks?

Probably: The hormone substance called relaxin softens the normally rigid connections of the many bones comprising the apparently-solid pelvis and this can cause significant discomfort. This can make the difference in a successful vaginal delivery instead of a c-section. Check with your doctor and if you get reassurance, try to accept these changes as part of a normal process. ...Read more

Im in my 3rd trimester & have been experiencing increased pain in my pelvic & hip bones. My dr says this is normal, but how can I ease the pain?

Pregnagncy belt: This pain is common, caused by the joints being more lax in pregnancy and not easy to relieve. Some patients find wearing a pregnancy belt helps because it stabilizes the pelvic bones. Also stretching, yoga, tylenol, (acetaminophen) ice and heat may help. You may wear the belt at night also or prop lots of pillows around and between your legs and hips. Hang in there...Pregnancy only seems like forever! ...Read more
