Sounds like round ligament pain. It's normal. I used an ice pack for mine and it helped a little. Avoid a heating pad near your belly, they can be dangerous.

Thank you and I've used a heating pad for my back should I stop using it at all, what's dangerous about it I've never heard of it

It can heat the amniotic fluid which can be dangerous for the baby.
