From history it seems that this pain might be due to head of baby engaged some times giving rise to this pain in vagina as well.
But at the same time we should keep in mind of having starting of labor pain.
It is advisable to consult Obst. and get examined.
Ultra sound will be helpful.
Take rest and remain in contact with your Obst.
Avoid constipation.
Ok and take care.
