Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that she describes suggest strain on the uterosacral ligaments (supporting ligaments of uterus) due to growing uterus and weight of the baby. If the symptoms are severe and not getting controlled with home remedies like hot fomentation, gentle massage etc, then she should consider visiting her doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further evaluation and assistance. Look out for danger signs like tightening of uterus/contractions, increasing intensity of contractions or back pain, bleeding, water leak etc. She should consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with her treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest.
Take care.
