It's not just common, it's practically a requirement! But it'll be worse pretty soon from carrying all that extra weight in front of you. Good luck! Yes, it is quite common. And, unfortunately to tell you, it is probably not going to get any better. If it seems to unbearable at times, you should contact your doctor about certain medications that he/she approves of, or going to a chiropractor( but make sure the chiropractor knows you are pregnant).
