Who gets pelvic pain in pregnancy?
Some people are more likely to have PGP than others. You are more likely to experience PGP in your current pregnancy if you previously experienced back pain, pelvic pain, or PGP in a previous pregnancy. Additionally, you are more likely to develop PGP if you have ever had a back or pelvic injury. The frequency of pregnancies, physically demanding jobs, being overweight, experiencing emotional distress, or smoking are additional risk factors for PGP.

Your symptoms at week 34 of pregnancy are fairly typical of late pregnancy, and from this point on they may seem repetitive.
Your vision may appear a little “off” due to hormones, fluid retention, and lack of sleep. If your blurry vision is accompanied by swelling, headache, rapid weight gain, and/or swelling, it could be a sign of preeclampsia, so tell your OB right away. Sometimes it’s just a normal, temporary pregnancy symptom.
Whether you are carrying a single baby or twins at 34 weeks, carrying all that extra weight is exhausting. And if only you could sleep at night!.
At 34 weeks pregnant, it’s common to be stopped up, which can make you feel even more uncomfortable. To get things moving, keep in mind to regularly walk, eat foods high in fiber (like leafy greens), and drink plenty of water.
This other not-at-all-fun symptom can be brought on by straining while using the restroom, as well as by the additional weight your growing baby is placing on your rectum. Work on constipation to relieve hemorrhoids, and experiment with various sitting and standing positions to relieve some of the pressure.
When you can, sit down and raise your feet to reduce swelling.
You may experience pelvic pressure and even more frequent urination as the baby gets ready to arrive and settles down lower.
At 34 weeks pregnant, cramping sensations are totally normal. Your body is probably just getting ready for the real deal at this point.

Premature labor is indicated by regular contractions that last longer than an hour, vaginal bleeding, and lower back pain. At 34 weeks, if you experience any of these concerning symptoms, contact your OB right away.
