Normal: That is the unfortunate side effect of being pregnant. Your doctor is correct in doing nothing, as there is not much you can do about it. Try soaking in a hot bath tub for 20-30 minutes, and it will help ease your round ligaments, but other than that, there really is not much else that can be done. 1gm of tylenol (acetaminophen) 3-4x per day help.
