13 Symptoms of Mid Pregnancy in Second Trimester

7 Back & pelvic ache

As your baby grows, its weight obviously increases. The weight of the fetus is supported by your back and pelvic area and the increasing size of baby puts stress on these areas, leading to the problem of backache and pelvic pain.

The ligaments which bind the bones together also become more relaxed to allow for expansion and childbirth, resulting in pain in the back and pelvic area.
