Is it normal to have pelvic pain and cramping every day?

I AM ALMOST 31 WEEKS. AND EVERY SINGLE DAY I HAVE PELVIC PAIN. AND EVERY TIME I GET UP TP WALK IT HURTS AND JUST THROBS LIKE CRAZY. I KNOW THESE THINGS CAN HAPPEN AROUND THIS TIME. BUT, IS IT NORMAL FOR IT TO HAPPEN EVERYDAY ? IS IT NORMAL THAT I HAVE TROUBLE WALKING OR SOMETIMES EVEN GETTING UP CAUSE IT HURTS SO BAD? HAVE OTHERS MOMS GONE THROUGH THE SAME THING FOR THE LAST 3 MONTHS OF PREGNANCY, EVERYDAY AND BE HEALTHY...? I ALSO GET CRAMPS THROUGH OUT MY LOWER TUMMY AND MY LEGS...ALMOST LIKE BRAXTON HICKS, BUT ALMOST EVERY NIGHT ....COULD IT BE THAT MY BELLY IS JUST SO HEAVY FOR MY SMALL FRAME ?

  • im 30 weeks, and this is my 1st pregnancy, so i wasnt sure what to expect, but ive been miserable with pain too. as long as the pains arent ALL the time you should be ok. its very uncomfortable for me to switch from standing to sitting or sitting to laying down, and of course to get up from those positions too. just take as much time as you need getting up or down, and good luck. i know how you feel!

  • I am almost 30 weeks and this is my second pregnancy. I have terrible (excuse my language) crotch pain--it is so sore and my dr told me that with the second preg. the nerves and muscles are stretched out and sagging lol. I also have bad back pain and feel like my little baby girl is sitting in my ribs lol. I am sure its just normal aches and pains but if you are worried call your dr. OH and I have crazy braxton hicks contractions. since i was like 22 weeks ive been getting them and again my dr said that my uterus is just more sensitve bc its the secnd one. take it easy and hang in there your almost there. lots of luck and god bless you

  • I'm 35 weeks along, & have had very bad pelvic pain for about 6 weeks now or longer probably. I also have a pretty small frame, but I have been to my doctor alot in this time & everything is going fine. It is just that my baby has dropped so much very soon & is alot of pressure being put down there. hope this helps & if you want to chat about anything else please add me. good luck!

  • i have the same exact issue and im told its either A) you have a very big child compared to your body or B) it's because you've already had children and the tendons and ligaments in your pelvic area are already loose and can't suppor tthe weight as well.

    i wear a belly brace now to keep the weight off, the pain is gone but the belly brace is hot to wear!

  • yes, i think its normal. I started having pains in my abdomen about a month ago and its everytime i walk or roll over in bed or basically put pressure on it. i think its a combination of the babies weight and his head getting further down there and just your body getting ready. i am also small, i was 5'9 130 pounds when i got pregnant and have only gained 40 pounds. im due feb 10.
