achy uterus?

I'm 18 weeks, and 4 days. Today for some reason, (at least for the past few hours) my uterus has been feeling achy. :/ Could this just be ligament pain? I thought that you could only have ligament pain when you moved. It's like, the whole area aches, though one side a wee bit more. I don't think it's gas, could my little man be laying right there?? (I've felt him move today, but not for awhile, he's being very random.)
I have been peeing a bit more today, but I really don't think that's an issue...

  • It could be a UTI or bladder infection if you're peeing a lot, but you can get ligament pain any time.

  • Well, you can't expect it not to ache when its being stretched from the inside out by a growing baby! But yes, totally normal.

  • I agree with the potential UTI, but you CAN have ligament pain without doing anything to bring it on (eg, moving!),

  • Thanks ladies. I'll keep an eye on it for an infection.
    I don't have any UTI symptoms, I mean, no burning/sharp pain while I'm peeing, and I haven't been jumping up to go to the bathroom as often the past few hours. (I think, and hope it was just because I was drinking a bit more than usual.)
