30 Weeks pregnant - just a question?
I have started experiencing some pain in my pubic area - it really only hurts when I walk. Is this normal? I assumed it was just your body getting ready for the birth. The only problem is today it really hurts when I walk. There is nothing when I am sitting down.
Should I be worried? (My next gynae appointment is only next week.) Thanks and enjoy your day.

It is likely that this pain is due to sother pressure on or stretching of the pubic ligament. SOme women experience this more than others. You can use Panado if necessary.
