Bless You

One of the more unpleasant pregnancy symptoms that I have experienced intermittently throughout my pregnancy is abdominal pain when I sneeze.
It happens mostly when I sneeze while lying flat or standing up straight.  It feels like my abdominal muscles are literally tearing.  I expect that this is normal given that these muscles are likely getting pretty stretched already.  If I bend at the  waist while sneezing it doesn't hurt so much.
This morning, while still lying in bed playing on my iPhone, I sneezed, which caused excruciating pain.  A few minutes later, I felt another sneeze coming on.  Being smarter than the first time, I lifted my knees to make sure I was more "bent" at the waist.  This definitely worked, but I didn't have time to cover my mouth, and I ended up sneezing all over my iPhone.  I muttered some choice words, and Ryan came to see what was going on, only to find my iPhone dripping with saliva.  I wish I would have taken a picture of it.

Have any of you experienced painful sneezes during pregnancy?
