Answer: Hi dear, Though many pains are normal during pregnancy and it is hard to say,if the pain is due to anything else. Joint pains could be due to several reasons in pregnancy: 1- calcium deficiency ( increase intake of dairy products and leafy vegetables) 2- insufficient vit D(expose yourself to early morning sunlight for better absorption of calcium) 3-b12 deficiency ( increase intake of animal meat) 4- increase in uric acid 5- gouts 6- increase in body weight Use cold and hot compress to the pain area.cold weather could worsen the situation.so try to keep your self warm.elevate your legs while sitting.
