Can Anyone tell me why this is happening or if its normal? Between my leg and vagina I've had so much pain lately I just want to know should I worry? My hips hurt alot but the doctor said that was normal so I want to know if this is too.

It sounds like your body is going through the normal process of preparing for childbirth by relaxing the muscles that keep the bones in your hips and pelvis in place. A friend of mine had similar pain and her OB was able to give her some stretches to help with it. I would mention it at your next appointment. You could also look into prenatal yoga classes or see a chiropractor.

What you are describing sounds a lot of pelvic girdle pain. I experienced this throughout my last pregnancy and was told by my Dr. and Ob that it is completely normal. I found prenatal yoga helped a lot. The best news is that it went away as soon as the baby was born.
