Pregnant, stomach cramps, abdominal pain. Symptoms due to muscle stretching or something more serious?

Hi Dr I m 24 weeks and 3 days pregnant today. I m always drinking ice cold water and worry it might have a long-term effect on my unborn baby girl..... Could this be something to worry about? I also get pains and cramps in my stomach and abdomen , I feel her moving all the time though so could this be something serious or is it just my muscles stretching as my bestfriend says?

thanks for the query.

Drinking cold water will not affect your fetus.
However its better to avoid cold things if you are allergic to it. This to prevent you from suffering from cold(flu).
Appreciation of fetal movements is a good sign. Infact, you must be concerned if you don't feel the movements.
Its completely normal.
Do not worry.
