If she cannot walk without belly pain or if jumping up/down on either straight leg increases the pain have her seen immediately.

Please see the Emergency room or urgent care, and notify your physician. The abdominal and pelvic pain is associated with a fever and she may have an infection. Watch for signs of vomiting, worsening pain and high fever.
