Did you know that when you are pregnant, you might get very tired. I'm kidding! Of course you know. Growing a baby is hard work. You are supplying your baby with all the nutrients he or she needs in order to grow into a healthy little human being and that takes a lot of eating (woohoo!) and resting on your part.

Most pregnant women who have suffered from PGP, which is quite common during pregnancy but varies in severity, have heard others dismiss their experience by saying that pain is “typical” and “to be expected” during pregnancy.

Your bones, joints, and ligaments will have to adjust to help you push out your baby out. To help with this, your body produces a hormone (Relaxin) to allow your ligaments to connect to the bones of your pelvis, to relax and help you make room for your baby. This is supposed to be a good thing during delivery, but it can cause you pain during your pregnancy, called Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP).
