What does this mean?

I am almost 38 weeks pregnant and over the last couple of days I have had these horrible pains in my pelvic area. Today it feels so bad it almost feels bruised. What does that mean? Is it ok to feel that way?

  • You're body is adjusting to get ready for birth. Your hips move to allow for the baby to enter the birth canal, I had hip and leg pains through my whole first pregnancy, I could literally feel my hips moving.

  • The pelvis becomes loose~ sometimes over time, sometimes just at the end. Thanks to a relaxing hormone. It's to help with labor, but can cause discomfort earlier. Do what you can to be comfy and know you're just getting ready!
