Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Unusual pain and discomfort in vagina along with itching or foul smelling discharge indicates infection. If the pain has been present for some time now, then do not ignore it. Go ahead with visiting your obstetrician for an examination and vaginal smear test to confirm and identify the infection. If left ignored, it can spread upwards and be a danger to the baby.
Another possibility could be lower abdominal cramps affecting you resulting as pain above vagina. It usually happens due to the uterus being reactive to the baby being inside. If the cramps are severe, then you might need to be put on uterine relaxants.
Take care.
