In brief: Many reasons
The pelvic pressure and pain may be due to the increased size of baby and stress on muscles can be the cause.
If the pain persists when you lay down, there may be some other reason. Consult with your physician.

In brief: Could be labor...
Since you are 36 wks which is very close to full-term now and labor can start at any time.
If the cramping comes regularly and gets stronger with time, it is labor. Also, if you feel a gush of water coming down/out means your "water broke" and you should call your OB doc and head to the hospital. Consult doc. Congrats on pregnancy and good luck.
