Sore abdomen during pregnancy

I am 34 weeks pregnant with my third child. I am wondering if anyone else has ever had a terribly sore abdomen toward the end of pregnancy. I am wondering if this is another of those third child things, like the ligaments being extra sore. Yesterday, I had to pull my maternity panty hose down below my stomach b/c they provided enough pressure that I was in pain. Today, I had to roll the waistband of my maternity pants down for the same reason. When I sit at my desk, I can't put my arm in my lap b/c I can't stand to have it laying across my stomach. It's not terrible shooting pain, but kind of like a super sore muscle that constantly aches. I am going to ask my dr about it at my next appt, but that isn't until next week and I just hate calling and getting half-answers from the nurse. I am not terribly concerned about it, just very uncomfortable.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I actually haven't been back to the dr yet. I have an appt tomorrow. I am still sore, but not as bad every day, more like every other day. The worst part right now is that my legs are very swollen and support hose help, but they make my abdomen hurt, so I don't wear them.

I have an app. today, I am only 30 weeks, but have been feeling similar soreness. What did you find out? I will let you know what my doc says later today. This is also my 3rd pregnancy, and there have been so many differences. Since we are having a surprise, it is hard to tell if the differences are because it is a boy, (my first 2 are girls), or if it is just 3rd pregnancy things happening to my body, lol.
