back/hip pain

Is anyone else having low back or hip pain?  I have woken up the past two morning with pain in my low back and hips.  I can't get comfortable to fall back asleep!  I have read that it could be the ligaments softening up or it could be stretching from the growing uterus. I am trying to do some little strethes now and going to start prenatal yoga once a week on the 19th.  Just wondering if anyone else was getting this?

I have lower back pain but it could be due to constipation and yes the round ligament stretching has started for me already this time around.
