Could be any number of things... round ligaments, growing, skin tightening,  braxtin hicks contractions either from your body prepping, but more likely dehydration.

Sounds like contractions. Do the pains come and go? How far apart are they and how long do they last? A warm bath will help you relax and may stop the contractions. It's also important to drink a lot of water. If you are having more than 5 pains an hour, you should call your doctor.

No pain just very uncomfortable. I'm laying down on my left side hopefully I can get some rest. Thanks
