You don't have to go for a late pregnancy scan if not required by your doctor. Late in pregnancy one can get light contractions called Braxton Hicks contractions, which is not painful or anything to be worried about. If the pain is severe you should let your doctor (GP) have a look as you may have a urinary tract infection.
