Varies: The fluid retention typical of pregnancy can cause aches and pain. The Progesterone level is very elevated during pregnancy - this results in some relaxation of ligaments and tendons throughout the body, which would also explain aches and pain. The enlarging uterus and the inherent pregnancy related presence of a cyst on at least one of the ovaries also could add to your aches and pain.
