Pain below right rib cage?


Hi everyone

About 3 weeks ago I had a really achey pain below my right rib cage. I thought I must have bumped myself and waited for it to go.

Last week I found out that I'm around 7 weeks pregnant.

The pain is knlybthere if I push the area, lie on it or sit crunched up.

My booking appointment is in 2 weeks and I have a Dr appointment on Friday to mention this rib pain. Has anybody had anything similar? Pregnancy related or otherwise?

I have had EXTREME rib pain with all three of my pregnancies, but not as early as you. Mine usually starts as baby grows up and pushes on my gallbladder and liver, squeezing them through my ribs like playdough. (My first child actually cracked my rib.) In my case, it's because I train aggressively (but normally for me), so my workouts mean my abs never separate, so babies just grow up and up, and don't go too far out. (I am pregnant with fourth now, and to prevent pain, will lighten up on training, though I will probably still be in agony by month 6.)

But, in your case, it doesn't sound like this. There is such thing as pregnancy related gallbladder issues, which as I understand have something to do with hormones. Perhaps this? I'm sorry I'm probably not being much help!

Thanks for your reply! I thought anything related to 'squishing' would be much later. I didn't have anything similar with either of my last pregnancies. Hopefully I'll get some answers on Friday!

Congrats on your pregnancy!!

I also have rib pain...but much much later. In 3rd trimester. When I think of that rib pain I honestly get scared of being pregnant in the future...lmao. So I don't think think it's the same thing. Maybe you pulled a muscle and it's unrelated?
