It could be stretching of the ligaments. If you are worried, phone your doctor.

I also had that pain when i was on your stage but on my right the baby was putting too much pressure on that side and it took about 3 weeks until I brushed my tummy and speak to the baby asking her to move then she move same time and i was watching it was incredible,maybe you should try communicating to your baby as well
