Partial hip dislocation during 3rd trimester

Patient : Hi, I am 32 weeks pregnant and tonight when i was hopping into bed i swung my leg to get into position and i felt a pop and i couldn't move it and it was EXTREMELY painful. I managed to give my leg a jerk and there was another loud and painful pop, but after a few minutes the pain subsided and i could move again, although it still feels a little bruised in the joint area. i guessed i may have partially dislocated it. Would this be what has happened? And is it likely to happen again because it happened once? thanks
