Pregnancy: It can be normal to feel some discomfort when the baby moves due to his/her size. But just to be sure everything is ok, you should visit your OBGYN to get a physical exam. In case you have pain that does not go away, bleeding or any other symptoms remember to go to the ER.

It can be : normal, if it becomes timed 10 minutes apart, could be preterm labor, if gets worse go to OB unit at hospital and let your doctor know.
