Many possibilities: You should probably see your obstetrician. There is a very long list of possible causes for your discomfort. Your doctor will consider the normal physiologic/anatomic alterations associated with pregnancy, fetal well-being and gestational age, and causes of abdominal pain that may be more common due to the pregnant state or related to obstetrical complication.
