Hi, I'm 35 weeks & 4 days today. For the past few weeks I've been having a very sharp & very painful pain in my ribs (i think) right under my right breast. It feels like a knife is being repeatedly stuck in there over and over. It's sore constantly, and if I move a certain way, or sit up after lying down, the stab-like pain comes back. Has anyone else experienced this or possibly know what it could be? It's not the baby kicking, both of her feet are always on my right side.
it most likely is just baby fighting for space now s/he is getting bigger, but I also had that pain in my side when suffering from pre eclampsia in my first pregnancy. if you have any other symptoms to be concerned about-headaches, swollen feet/ankles/anywhere in the body, high blood pressure and general 'I don't feel right' inkling, then go and get yourself checked out.
Ive had terrible rib pain on my right side, its eased off now as i think the baby has dropped but i still have bad pain on the edges of my left rib cage and it burns and throbs. I dont think its the baby as shes much further down now but i think it must be the top of my uterus pushing on it. I cant think what else is causing it.
