pains!

I'm 23 weeks and having really bad pains in my lower abdomen. It feels like pressure just pushing down but I can still feel the baby moving. Is this normal or should it be checked out?

Hi!
IF you were my patient, I would want you to come in right away and be checked.  The pressure pains could possibly be contractions.  Many times the symptoms are just normal growing pains, but I can never tell this unless I check my patients first.
Hope this helps!

I would get checked out just to make sure everything is alright. Good luck!
