If this is your first pregnancy, stretching pains would be more obvious. Yet, you should have an exam by your obstetrician to rule out other factors like uterine irritability and so on. Irritable bowel aggravates in stress situations and pregnancy is one of them. You may try some natural remedies like practising yoga and meditation, avoiding fruits and milk for a few days and staying relaxed. You may take further advice form your physician. Wish you good health.
