abdominal and back pain during pregnancy

I am currently twenty seven weeks pregnant and sixteen years old. The last few days I have been having abdominal pain much like menstrual cramps and back pain, lower and upper. It is only occuring on my right side, and feel fairly strong in pain and are providing me with much discomfort. They do not ease up with movement, pressure or change in position. I am unsure if this is common or if it could be something more severe.

Back pain may be experienced during any point of your pregnancy; however, it most commonly occurs later in the pregnancy as the weight of the baby increases.
Occasional or sporadic abdominal discomfort during pregnancy similar to menstrual cramps may simply be a sign that your womb is preparing to carry your baby through the next nine months of pregnancy.
If you start to experience chills, fever, spotting or bleeding, see your gyn since this can be something more serious.
If you have a back pain that spreads to your abdomen on one side, you can be examined for kidney stones.

Best wishes!
