During pregnancy, your body undergoes many different changes to accommodate the growing baby: your center of gravity shifts to the front of your pelvis [resulting in discomfort in your low back] and the associated weight gain can cause the curve in your low back to increase leading to serious impact on the vertebral joints, sacrum and hip joints. When this happens, the nerves can be irritated. Physical stress on your body during pregnancy can cause a great deal of discomfort including low back pain, leg cramps, sciatica, and constipation. Pregnancy can also cause the spine to be misaligned which can make simple tasks painful and difficult.
