Wellllllll I wouldn't say any type of intense pain is normal in pregnancy, except labour itself.
If you are in a lot of pain I think you're probably best off calling your caregiver.
It is normal to feel discomfort and pressure in the pelvic area at your stage of pregnancy but if it is intense it might be worth having it looked into.
Best of luck

I'd get it checked out, but I had something called SPD from around the stage that you are at now. Basically the hormones that relax everything and make it possible for your hips to widen enough to give birth can give you a bit of grief. I had days where I literally couldn't even walk, it was that painful.
Check it out with your caregiver, but in the mean time don't step over things, step around them. When you get out of bed (or out of the car) swing BOTH legs around and then stand up, don't seperate your legs to do it.
Try not to carry heavy things like loads of washing etc, and use a tennis ball to roll on your hips/bum gently anywhere to release knots that have built up. Trust me, it helps heaps!

I've had symphysis pubic dysfunction since five months, and agree with the PP - keep your knees together as much as possible! I also find sitting on an ice pack helps A LOT, which I do when I get home from work each day. Hot baths help as well, assuming you can still get in/out of the tub!
Hopefully it will all be over soon for you.
