In brief: Hip pain is common
During pregnancy there are three changes that can have significant impact on the hip.
First is the change in activity level. Second is the change in weight and how it is carried. And third are the hormone level. All of these changes can impact the stresses around the hip and may lead to hip pain.

In brief: Depends
Not that common, what you need to be worried is if the pain radiates down the leg, if you loose strenght in your leg or if sensation changes on any area of the leg.
You should promptly adress this with your pcp.
