In brief: Please call OB ASAP

If you cannot reach your OB provider, go to the nearest labor and delivery for evaluation.
This might be pain from any pelvic or abdominal structures like bowel or bladder that needs treatment. It also could be cramping of the uterus placing you are at risk for preterm delivery. So do not delay, call your OB provider and prepare to go quickly to labor and delivery for examination and monitoring.
