23 Wks Pregnant and pelvic ache
Hi there

I am 23 weeks pregnant and for the last week or so I have this pelvic ache. Its not really any kind of strong pain or anything and almost feels like I was doing leg stretches. The ache is around my pubic bone area and feels like I imagine it would feel if my pelvis was stretching or opening. Does this mean my baby could be applying pressure to my pelvis or should I be a little more worried than I am?

The ligaments of the pelvis stretch during pregnancy.\ This may be what you are feeling.
