Rsided pain in pregn: May be positional just where the uterus is hitting on your anatomy. or stretching ligaments or pushing on bladder, colon, appendix The baby is more protected because of the amniotic fluid is a cushion. But for any pains during pregnancy especially at this stage when there is viability call you OB this AM check for UTI, fetal position, appendix, gallbladder

If it hurts don't : A good general rule to follow during pregnancy is that if it hurts then don't do it. Sex is generally safe in pregnancy but if it's causing you pain and discomfort than you might want to avoid it at this current time. Determining the exact cause of pain at 28 weeks is going to very difficult
