In brief: Round Ligament

It could be from the round ligament of the uterus stretching as the uterus expands.
Most women describe it as a sharp or tugging pain radiating to the labia. Try tylenol (acetaminophen) for the discomfort and consult your OB so you can be properly evaluated. Avoid any NSAID drugs (like ibuprofen) unless your OB says its ok.
