well i'm 21 weeks and I have lower abdominal pains too. The on base helper told me that it is either gas or the baby stretching out. Also, she said that it could be mild contractions... nothing to worry about... I also read that you should drink a glass of warm milk at night and lay down because that is usually when a baby is most active. If you've heard of the book "What To Expect While Expecting" it helps alot. And the contraction think I said... If you're still sexually active, it's the same as an orgasim just not as pleasurable... I know TMI

Congrats on the little girl
