  • the pubic bone or symphysis pubis separates during labor. In the weeks just prior ligament begin softening to allow for that to happen. If the pain is sharp and stabbing def. bring it up to your Dr. but it is probably within 'normal' limits.

  • Oh yes, that's normal. Sometimes I feel like my pelvis is crushing and I'm not having contractions. Just another "perk' of pregnancy. ;o)
