Getting pip for python3.7 (altinstall)

So as I am sure a few of you know I recently installed python3.7 from source via an altinstall. The interpreter runs fine from the terminal. However, now I need to figure out how to get pip installed for it so that I can start using it. Originally, I thought I could use PyCharm to install modules but I ran into complications and I currently have a ticket open with JetBrains on that end. In the meantime I am trying to find an alternative method. I would just copy the modules directly; however, python3.7 is located in usr/local/bin and therefore I have restricted access. Also, I noticed that the 'site-packages' dir for python 3.5 and 2.7 (pre-installed) is actually located in my home directory @ .local/lib. So I am thinking I need to find a way to get python3.7's 'site-packages' dir there as well? Also, what is the difference between 'site-packages' and 'dist-packages'?
