Pelvic Pain or Cracking

What it is: When you roll from one side to the other in bed or stretch in your prenatal yoga class, you might hear (and feel) a cracking sensation in your pelvis, similar to when you crack your back. Many pregos also suffer from pelvic girdle pain due to the stress your growing baby places on your bones, joints, and muscles.

How it affects exercise: Intense exercise might exacerbate the issue, so stick to walking, swimming, and light stretching like this hip and hamstring yoga sequence. Wearing a supportive belly band may also help, but if the pain is really bad, talk to your doctor.
