Stomach stretching/cramping

Has anyone else gotten stomach muscle pains that feel like cramping and stretching at the same time?  I've gotten them twice now, they last from a minute to 5 minutes straight and are very intense, like someone punching me in the abs and ribs after a really crazy work out!  I've chalked it up to stretching, because immediately after these fits both times my bump has basically doubled from it's previous size.

Sounds like your muscles & ligaments stretching to accomodate bubba (unless its a severe pain or cramp) I would say its probably normal

I had these from about 17 weeks until well into my 3rd trimester -I was so worried but I think it was ligament pain from stretching to make room for baby -like Nicki says, unless it is extreme pain you're probably fine :)
