I am 30 weeks pregnant with my third child. and am having severe pelvic bone pain (where it feels as if someone has hit me with a baseball bat and broken my pelvic bone). It hurts to walk and within the last week it has become unbearable. Is this normal?

This sounds very like Symphysis Pubis Diastasis (or Dysfunction), otherwise known as SPD. Your pelvis is being stretched, and where the two halves of the pelvis meet at the front at the pubic joint, the pain can be excruciating. Physios can help by recommending exercises that help alleviate the pain; a belt can sometimes help too. Swimming makes the pain better, but you may well need strong pain killers. You guessed it-the pain won't go completely until baby is born.
