Thanks for your query.You are pregnant with 5 months pregnancy and getting pain in lower abdomen.Since your ultrasound scan is normal you need not worry at all The pain in abdomen may be related to Digestive system e.g indigestion or due to fullness of the abdomen due to pregnancy itself.These are the common problem few women face during pregnancy.Please practice some mild exercise and take frequent meals in small quantity rather than full meals twice.Have a regular check up by your Gynecologist till full term

Thanks for writing to us.
A scan report showing placenta 29mm from os is a normal finding and is not worrisome. The pain in the lower abdomen can be due to uterine contractions or intestinal colic. Direct examination and uterine relaxants will help you.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
