In brief: Hang in there.
Round ligament pain is due to normal changes that take place as your body is transformed by pregnancy.
There are other, abnormal, treatable causes of pain that your md may want to check. Therefore, any new or significant pain should be reported to your doc. For round lig pain, try to: stay off your feet, take tylenol (acetaminophen) in the usual doses, and rest on your left side. Hand in there, its quite normal.
