pain in midriff

Dear doc

Please help - I'm currently 20 weeks pregnant and I have this constant pain in my midriff - where the ribs come together
I experience the same discomfort with my 1st pregnance later in the pregnancy it became almost unbearable - my doctor just made it off as part of pregnancy pains - now with my second pregnancy it's already starting and I'm fearing the next 20 weeks as it will get worst as the baby grows - what could be the possible reasons?

thanks
