Is this normal?

im currently 14 weeks pregnant. Everything has been good so far, wiith an exception of morning sickness for the first 10 weeks, i have gotten an ultrasound, the baby looks good and healthy, and he/she is in the right spot! The last 3 days or so i have had some weird shooting pains in my lower abdomen, just when i bend or twist certain ways. Its not a contraction/tightening, and nothing excrutiating, just a quick "jabbing" feeling. Could this just be because of my uterus expanding and making room. I WILL call my doctor, so that advice is not needed. Thank you guys!
