Introduction
Lumbopelvic pain (LPP) is clinically diverse and difficult to treat medical problem. Changes during pregnancy and confinement conduce the appearance of pain complaints. LPP proper differential diagnosis and education constitute the basis of properly selected treatment. The aim of the study was to establish the LPP frequency in pregnant women. Additionally, the daily living activities limitations level was defined.

Material and methods
211 pregnant women took part in the study. The study was performed with the use of advanced online questionnaire. The research tool consisted of: original questionnaire, International Physical Activity Questionnaire – IPAQ (shortened Polish version) and Oswestry Disability Index (ODI).

Results
On the basis of conducted studies, the LPP was diagnosed in majority (80.1%) of tested women. There were statistically significant correlations between the pain intensity and age (p=0.023, r=-0.16) and education (p=0.013, r=-0.17). It has been proven that there is a statistically significant correlation between the pain intensity, BMI (p=0.002, r=0.22) and physical activity level (p=0.048, r=0.14). It has been stated that 65.4% research subjects had no significant limitations in performing daily living activities.

Conclusions
The lumbopelvic pain applies to majority of pregnant women in the study. The risk of LPP increases with BMI growth. LPP occurs less frequently in women with higher education and in older ones. In majority of cases LPP does not cause limitations in daily living activities.
