Anyone else have sore spots on abdomen?

For a couple of weeks now I've been getting painful spots on my abdomen. If I touch a sore spot (which I usually discover by accident when I'm getting dressed or rough-housing with DS), I wince in pain. The spots vary in location (low, high, right, left) and come and go within a few seconds (so I touch a spot and it hurts, then I touch the same spot again a few seconds later and nothing, no pain). My abdomen doesn't feel sore expect when I happened to touch one of these spots. I'm guessing this is either intestinal pain (from hormones slowing down the bowels so much and causing bloating) or muscle pain (from muscles suddenly stretching with my growing uterus and bloating). I asked my mom about it and she said she remembers having these issues with her pregnancies and also during her periods, so she's guessing it's intestinal and hormonally-driven. I never had this problem with DS, so this is new to me. Anyone else experiencing this, too? Anything you've found to relieve it?

...Sounds like it's pretty annoying. I hope it goes away!

I've had some painful/tender spots with my last pregnancy, but it felt muscular in nature. I imagine I'll have it return later on in this pregnancy as well. My MW didn't know for sure what mine was.

I have some sore spots sometimes too. Surprisingly no ligament stretching yet.

Glad to know I'm not the only one. I feel kind of dumb since it seems early to be having complaints like this.... but who knows!
