Yes this is very common but you should be checked for preterm labor so see your ob/gyn.

In brief: 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.
