Possible hernia?

I'm 28 weeks and for the last 2 day have been having a weird pain around my pelvic bone. It's mostly on the left side and is only painful when I stand up. I am not sure if it is just a pulled muscle or possible hernia or what it may be. The baby is moving fine and doesn't seem to be having any issues with it, it's just uncomfortable for me. I called my dr today and they never called back but I'm hoping I will hear from him tomorrow but until then my question is, is there anything I can do to help alleviate the pain? Maybe a heat or ice pack? I've tried a few stretches an that has only made it worse. Any suggestions on what to do until I can find out for sure from my dr what is going on would be greatly appreciated.

Could definitely be a pulled muscle BUT also sounds like regular pregnancy issues as well, the further along you get the more sore the pubic area will be, there is alot of extra blood flow and actual separation of the joints and bones in that area... just be careful when standing up or rolling over. Just be sure to ask your doc on your next appt.... I am sure all is well tho.

I talked to his nurse today and they think I pulled a muscle, we are in the middle of packing up our house to move. I thought I've been careful, but I guess I wasn't as much as I thought. I have an appointment next week and said that they will check it out then. This is my 2nd pregnancy but I never had anything like this with my son. But thank you for answering :)

Hopefully it is a pulled muscle. I have a suspected femoral hernia (along the "panty line" on the front of my pelvis). The test he did was to push down in that location, then have me sit up (hurt more). It also hurts more when I cough and doesn't seem to hurt so much with standing as with certain motions. He suggested a "belly band" since I am a teacher on my feet most days. It comes and goes but when it comes back, it's with similar intensity, which differs from a muscle strain.
