Your joints are loosening/have loosened up in preparation for birth :)

It's totally normal. I had that happen all the time with both my pregnancies. It's just the muscles and ligaments and whatnot loosening up and holding your bones more loosely. Same reason you get more flexible while pregnant.

The popping/cracking can be caused by gases escaping the joint or just the movement of the ligaments in the joint snapping back into place.
