2nd trimester moms...sore spots on abdomen when touched

I have noticed for the first time today that if I press on my belly/uterus I hit a very sore tender spot.  It almost feels like the muscle is sore and when I touch it, I feel like I am pushing the baby out of the way.  I know that sounds strange and it is hard to describe.  The spot has moved today and doesn't always happen when I touch it.

Has anybody else ever had a sore/tired spot when you press on it?  I don't remember this with my DD.  I am 19 weeks.

Thanks for your feedback.  I was starting to surf the Internet and was worried it was a sign of Placental Abruption.  Do you guys know what causes the pain...is is the baby kicking around in a spot and making it sore or just normal stretching?  It doesn't feel like stretching to me b/c the only time it really feels sore is if I feel like I am moving "something" when I touch it.

I had something similar last week, but I am no where near 2nd trimester (only 6.5 weeks!).  But it was sore to the touch in the uterine area-as if it were bruised almost.  After a good night's rest mine went away.

I had the same thing throughout my pregnancy.  DD is almost 5 mos and I had the sore spots after having her for about 3-4 months.  It's the muscle stretching and I know that it's not the most pleasant thing but it goes away.

I had severe pain as well! My doctor's office kind of pushed it off as stretching. Yesterday, the pain was so intense that it doubled me over. I called and insisted on an ultrasound. The baby is 100% fine (and growing so much....such a miracle) but I do have an ovarian cyst of substantial size on my left ovary. Not really a big thing to worry about....just have to take some tylenol (which I hate to do, but...). I think most of the time the pain is just stretching,but if you assume something else call your doctor!! I'm sure glad I did so I know that it's simply a cyst and not a problem with my baby! Good luck to all!
