I have the *exact* same thing going on. Since about 37 weeks. It actually takes me about three minutes to hobble the 20 steps between our bed and the washroom at night, so the midwife refered me to physio. They got me in really fast, and tried a bunch of different support things. One of them helped. It didn't so much take away the pain, but transfered it to a much more tolerable location and dulled it a bit. I'm uncomfortable wearing it though, because my baby's head is already squashed (he's very engaged, and his head is "moulded") and I figure he's making room because he needs it. But, physio is an option you could look into, if you're feeling so inclined.
At this point, aside from just plain old being excited, the pubic symphysis pain is what's making me the most antsy to get this child OUT! You're not alone.
For greater things are yet to come...
