    Hello, Im currently in my 25th week and this is my first pregnancy. I have been doing alot of walking and I try to stretch everyday but for some reason I have alot of pain/pressure/soreness below the waist (if you know what I mean) especially after I have been laying down for a while and in the monring when I get up. Is this something that is common? and if so what can I do to help relieve this discomfort? I do feel a little discomfort when I walk.

    In need of some relief

    That depends, do you lay on your back or on your side. If you lay on your back it decreases blood flow and could cause some pain and discomfort.
