38 weeks and sharp abdominal pain

I am concerned slightly and my doc is off today.
For last 18hrs, I have had sporatic, yet constant pain across my middle under belly (barely above pubis).
Third pregnancy, just starting week 38. First child was pre eclampsia, second no issues. No other symptoms.
The pain is directly related to baby movement. Not sure if its baby causing, or baby reacting to it. Its VERY sharp and painful, almost crippling for the 20 -30 sec on avg it lasts. Similar to round ligament, but in wrong location and way more constant.
I increased water intake to rule out dehydration, still, whenever I sit down, get up, move at all, OUCH.  Last night 3am, woke up with the pain...so it does not matter what I am doing.
Should I go to ER? Baby is on Vena cava ( two hemmroid procedures already in last month). Pain is not anywhere else, always in same spot across a 2inch line underbelly.
HELP

The best thing would be to call labor and delivery and ask them, I wouldn't go to the ER.  I would go to L&D.  Good luck.
