Could they be stretching / growing pains? I got a lot of stretching pains

I got lots of weird sensations early on too. Some felt almost a little pinchy, still get them now. Pretty sure its just stretching.

It could be twins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They say you get symptoms earlier with a multiple pregnancy.
