Every pregnancy is slightly different, but the most common pains appear on the left or right side in the low back or pelvis area. It is very common and normal for the expectant mother to have spinal and pelvic related pains as your body changes to accommodate a growing baby. More specifically, it is usually the sacroiliac joint (SI Joint) that becomes problematic and the source of pain.
The SI joint most commonly refers pain in the left or right side of the back where the lumbar vertebrae meet the pelvis. The SI joint can also refer pain which radiates into the gluteal area, thighs or legs. The SI joint can also create numbness or tingling on the lateral and anterior portion of the thigh. Every case of SI joint related pain can be slightly different and have different pain levels.
