Dear Junitta
Yes, unfortunately the pregnancy will put some extra strain on the pelvis and you cannot really take pain killers or anti-inflammatory drugs.
Have you tried a physiotherapist who specialises in pregnancy- she may have some exercises and/or techniques to help with pain relief. Good luck!
