have aches and pains in second trimester

on my third pregnancy and never had this before. I am around 20 weeks and I feel like I got run over by a truck! I have a headache and body pains. It feels almost like the flu but I am not sick and I have no fever. Does anyone know if this is common?

  • With this pregnancy (2nd) I have had all kinds of aches and pains. Muscle aches, head aches, sciatic nerve pains in both my hips and then some. I just hit my third trimester. For me its normal. I have told the doctor about all the pains. So If its to much and you are worried call the doctors office and talk to a nurse and see what she says. At least then you will have some reassurance. good luck and take some Tylenol and just rest if you can.

  • You should also let your doctor know how you are feeling. If the headaches are constant it could be your blood pressure.
