In brief: Common in pregnancy

Low back pain is exceedingly common in pregnancy.
It can be due to the increase in weight being carried in your uterus and stretching of some of the abdominal ligaments to make room for the fetus.

In brief: Common preg problem

Tailbone and hip bone pain are really common during pregnancy and tailbone pain is even more common after vaginal delivery.
It has to do with the anatomical changes that occur during pregnancy. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is a good choice for medications. Heating pads, stetching, yoga and massage are allso good options.
