Thank you for your query.
the condition sounds like symphysis pubis dysfunction.
this condition is very common and painful during pregnancy.
Due to the effect of pregnancy hormones, the joints and muscles and ligaments of the pelvis relax and often cause pain.
You should try physiotherapy for this.
Also, measure your calcium and vitamin D levels to check for deficiency.
Consult with your obstetrician so that any cause of uterine pain is not overlooked.
Take care.
