Pains after an abortion?

I had a medical abortion yesterday at 8 weeks 4 days and everything I needed to pass was passed. I'm having quite heavy bleeding now which is apparently normal but I'm also getting pains in my stomach (just above and around my bellybutton). Iv taken paracetamol but the pain is still there. I wasn't warned by the nurse that I would get this pain in my belly... Is this normal or do I need to see a doctor?

It should be normal but if it doesn't slow after a few days just give a call to get confirmation. try taking IB profeun and Tylenol it usually does the trick for me when I'm in any type of pain, take the recommended dosages.
