It sounds liek stretching of the pelvic ligaments and is normal. You can use Panado if it is very uncomfortable.

Best wishes

No need to worry. It's suppose to happen. Your body's getting ready for the big day. The pubic bone gets more "elastic" so the baby's head can pass through.
Sit on a cushion and try and make yourself more comfortable.

Congrats on the pregnancy and Good Luck with the delivery!
