In brief: Common

At 16 weeks the uterus is 1/2 way between your pubic bone and umbilicus causing pressure on your bladder which is above the lower part of your uterus.
Posture is also changing. Also a bladder infection could be there. Keep your back posture straight, and tell your doctor if this persits.
