Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.
 

I'm in my second trimester - is abdominal aches and cramping during and/or after exercise normal?

1 answers
I went for my usual 2-mile run yesterday and towards the end, my lower abdomen began to feel slightly sore and achy, like I had jiggled around too much or worked some muscles. The feeling never subsided, and today it feels as sore as if I did ab crunches! Is this normal? I'm so afraid that running (especially in the heat) is going to effect my baby.

I really think you should not run, especially in the heat.  Try low-impact activities such as walking or swimming.  And more importantly...... talk to your doctor.  Good luck.
