Hi Doc

I am 32weeks and 4 days today. I have been experiencing a considerable amount of pain in my virgina whenever I get up from a seated or sleeping position. Please advice whether this is normal in late pregnancy/not.

Thank you

It may be that the head has engaged and is causing pressure. Also stretching of the pubic ligament sometimes occurs. Both of these are normal.
