As you get closer to the tail end of your pregnancy journey, it can be common to experience pain in your lower belly and pelvis (and sometimes in your tailbone too!) Knowing what lies ahead, your body begins to prepare itself at the appropriate time so that hormones will begin to relax the ligaments in this region, which makes space for your baby to maneuver more. From Braxton Hicks contractions (are those the real deal?) to swollen feet, we’ve got you covered. By staying informed and taking proactive steps to manage discomforts and pain, you can spend more time enjoying and experiencing your pregnancy. Check out our Common Questions and Concerns in Late Pregnancy for more information, and follow up with your maternity provider for more clarity.
