Oh my..that sounds miserable!  I've never had jaw pain while pregnant.  It could be something else too for you?  Hope you feel better!

A way to test it is to put your fingers right below your ear were your jaw starts.  You then open and close your mouth.  If you have TMJ you can feel your jaw dislocate and it will hurt having your fingures there.  for me its not always both sides that hurt.  some days my right side might hurt only and other days it might just be my left side.  sometimes if I have to talk alot my whole jaw starts hurting like its tired

I doubt it is pregnancy related. Sounds more like you are clenching your teeth at night.

HOw often do you chew gum? Sounds crazy, but chewing gum made me clench my teeth/jaw at night and actually was causing a ton of jaw pain and subsequent headaches. Almost like I didn't realize I was working out my jaw all day long.

I've all but given up chewing gum to be honest and I don't miss it.

Or you could be grinding your teeth at night?
