Hard to say!: Intermittent minor abdominal pain that doesn't last is usually no big deal. However a pain, even intermittent, that doesn't get better in a day or so, or keeps coming back in the same area is worth getting checked out. Remember, avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, naprosyn (Aleve) and others in that class if you have diarrhea, abdominal pain, vomiting or nausea or on empty stomach, take tylenol (generic)

Pelvic pain: You should get in to see your gyn. Symptoms like that aren't typical this far away from a miscarriage. A sonogram and blood work should be done.

See own doc: if it is truly there for 1 day and asymptomatic, it could wait for your own doc to evaluate.
