Brief Answer:
Precautions advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
I understand your anxiety about the issue.
It is common to have stomach pain after coughing and usually not related to abortion risk but in case pain persists or there is discharge from vagina or bleeding then visit emergency room at the earliest.
In addition keep taking cough syrup three times a day and take steam inhalation at night which will help a lot.
Avoid spicy and sour foods and can take strepsils or XXXXXXX lozenges when there is a bout of cough for temporary relief
