Your symptoms suggest that you are into pre-labor and the vaginal pain is perhaps due to the descent of the baby leading to pelvic pressure. As you are only 33 weeks now, your symptoms need to be alleviated. You should see your consultant and get assessed for the status of your pregnancy. You may need steroid injections and tocolytics along with absolute rest with foot end elevation and treatment of any vaginal or urinary infections to postpone labor for at least 3-4 weeks. If that is not possible, you should get admitted to a hospital with proper preterm baby care facilities. Wish you safe motherhood.
