Hi, and thanks for trusting XXXXXXX
I would suggest she gets an urgent abdominal ultrasound done to ensure the integrity of the abdominal organs and exclude any surgical emergency on pregnancy. This is an exam that is non invasive, rapid and very informative. Comcording these results with those of the physical examination by her Gynecologist shall be key aspects in drawing an appropriate diagnosis and establishing a good and safe management plan.
I would suggest you take her to her gynecologist for a rapid physical examination and obstetric ultrasound.
Thanks and best regards.
Will be honored answering further questions if need be ,
