Brief Answer:
Not unusual; but needs to be discussed with her doctor...

Detailed Answer:

It is not uncommon to get such intermittent abdominal pain. Sometimes this type of pain is associated with pregnancy, but at times, the pain may not be related to pregnancy. It may be related to gastritis, her medications or other bowel conditions. A physical evaluation is necessary to determine the cause of pain.

Hence I will urge her to discuss about this pain during her next antenatal check up visit.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.
