Yes: Sharp and unusual pains can be normal in pregnancy. You want to make sure, however, that it's not a uti, or that you're not having any preterm labor. A urinalysis shows the former and a cervical length ultrasound can show you the latter.

Pregnant Pain: Yes, it is possible, but don't wait too long to find out. If not better by tomorrow then see OB doctor. If gets severe then go to er.
