Answer: Firstly the weight of the growing baby and uterus also puts pressure on the blood vessels and nerves in the pelvis and back. Posture changes. This may result in back pain or strain.
Secondly the two sciatic nerves in your body run from the lower back to the feet. When an enlarged uterus puts pressure on the nerves, you can experience pain, numbness, or a tingling sensation in the buttocks, hips, and thighs. Another possible cause of hip pain during the second trimester is round ligament pain.
Few tips for relief
1.) Practice good posture. As your baby grows, your center of gravity shifts forward
2.) Get the right gear. Wear low-heeled — not flat — shoes with good arch support
3.) Lift properly
4.) Sleep on your side
5.) Try heat, cold or massage
6.) Include physical activity in your daily routine

Answer: Hi dear, I can completely understand your concern as Tailbone pain is one of the most common aches that pregnant women experience. In general, relaxing and other hormones are to blame. They cause relaxation and stretching of your pelvic floor, which also moves your coccyx.Often, what feels like lower back pain and hip pain during pregnancy is actually tailbone pain.If your pain is severe or lasts more than a few days with little change or if it worsens, see your doctor.You’ll need a yoga mat to comfortably perform this stretching routine.This pelvic tilt moves your spine by using your arm, abdominal, and back muscles.
Begin on all fours, with your feet flat (toes not tucked). Keep your shoulders directly over your wrists and hips directly over your knees.
As you inhale, drop your belly, letting your back arch but keeping your shoulders rolled back and down. This is Cow.As you exhale, press into your hands and round your upper back. This is Cat.
Continue moving on your inhales and exhales. Repeat 10 times.

Question: Having pain in lower back n hips is it normal??
Answer: Hello dear. During pregnancy, your body makes a hormone called relaxin that allows ligaments in the pelvic area to relax and the joints to become looser in preparation for the birth process. The same hormone can cause ligaments that support the spine to loosen, leading to instability and pain.
Here are a few tips that might relieve you from back pain :
Ice or heat packs.
Sleep on your left side, and use a support pillow under your knees.
