Hallo Charne
It could be due to muscle spasms caused by the weight of the baby or a shortage of calcium. The ligaments around the pelvis are also stretching and this can cause pelvic pain. It may help to use a supporting girdle if the pain is in the pelvis, and to take some calcium and magnesium supplements if the pain is in the leg muscles.
