So I figured out why I'd get so sore after running …

@iarebridezilla:  I get really sore in my pelvic area after working out (and I only do the elliptical, because of ankle problems), and I just assumed it was because my baby is bouncing up and down and everything is pulling inside of me.  I’m pretttttty sure I’m not doing a very long kegal, but I hear you on the constantly-needing-to-pee sensation.  That’s why I’ve changed to only working out in the gym, near a bathroom. Walking outside means I always get about halfway, have to pee….and then have nowhere to go.

My 35 week compressed bladder can’t take it. 

Also, even though they are embarassing to wear, the pregnancy belts really help during working out (at least for me).

Not sure if the pain is the same as you described, but I had some pretty intense pain in my SI joints and my pubic symphysis.  Apparently my pelvis was kind of “loosey-goosey” because the skeletal relaxin secreted during pregnancy makes your connective tissue softer and more pliable.  (It’s supposed to or your pelvis wouldn’t open enough to allow the baby to come out!)
