Pregnant. Pain in lower back and the crease of thigh and pubic bone. Is it serious?

I can`t find the answer im looking for online, but i am almost 33 weeks pregnant. And about a week ago i started feeling this horrible pain in my lower back. The only way to describe how it feels is like a pinched comes and goes throughout the day but get unbearable at night time and middle of the night. it feels as if i am paralyzed and cannot move for a few minutes until i kinda work it out. And a few days ago, i started feeling this bad pain in the crease of my thigh and pubic bone(dont know what its called) but it feels like its more in a muscle or tendon. when i stand up i sometimes cannot even stand without dropping, and last night, i even sat up and fell over cause it hurt so bad. These pains are very uncomfortable and ive read about signs of preterm labor and can relate to a few, but also know it could likely be from the baby dropping. what`s your opinion? is it somthing that could be serious?

Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

In a 33 weeks pregnancy with complaints like you are describing, it would certainly be worth an evaluation to make sure you are not experiencing contractions or changes in your cervix. That being said, the most likely explanation is twofold. First, the babies position in the pelvis can certainly put pressure on nerves and cause pain in the back, suprapubic region, and groin. Second, the pelvic bone is comprised of several bones fused together. These bones become more "usntable" and this pelvic instability is sometimes associated with significant pain, especially with movement and by the end of the day. Tylenol is safe to take during pregnancy and you can talk with your doctor about a pregnancy belt to redistribute the weight of your pregnant uterus.
