Rib pain 22 weeks


Hi everyone,

Has anyone had bad rib pain earlier on in pregnancy? I phoned midwife today because I have really bad pain below my bust. I thought it was underwear digging in but wearing non wired bras now and still feel pain. I also get it around my back as well.

Midwife said it shouldn't be anything baby related as the baby will be sitting low at this time. I thought that was odd because I can feel it's very soft under bust like it's the start of bump and people are saying it looks like I'm carrying high.

I've booked a doctor's appointment as midwife was so sure it's not pregnancy related....has anyone had this pain early on and got any advice? thanks alot

I actually had some very brief pain where you described a couple times early on and last night. From what I've found, it's either stretching, bruised ribs from baby kicking, or could possible be gallstones. If it continues hurting I'd insist you be seen again and get some answers!

Im suffering alot with rib pain have been or the last 2 weeks, so sarted at 22 weeks. Its aparently muscular when I spoke to my consultant. He said not to worryunless it starts to hurt when I actually breathe. Apparently its the uterus pushing everything out of the way etc.

It feels like a knife being stabbed into me for about 3 seconds then goes. The skin around pretty much also feels a bit sensitive. I hav taken to wearing crop tops around the house and at night. I only wear bras now if I go out and about.luckily i work from home.

I hope that eases you somewhat that I was told not to worry, and that youre not alone.

Thanks so much. I have an appointment with my doctor on Friday so will see how it goes the next couple of days. I have no sharp pains just constant ache it's so annoying. I wonder if it's from the weight of breasts as they get bigger as I'm fine at night which is probably because I'm lying in a position that doesn't mean they are putting pressure downwards. Ha listen to me I'm like a doctor trying to diagnose myself

Ive been feeling that for the past few weeks,too. To me it feels very sore and tender. I have a feeling its my upper abs stretching. Ive been feeling it in my back, too - so uncomfortable. The best remedy I found was wading in the pool for about 20-30 mins, kind of anti gravity like. Or if there is not one available, I get on all fours and let my belly hang - somehow it relieves the pressure/tension from my rib area. Hope this helps

I'm 25 weeks and have this every day for the last couple of weeks. I was told it's where your ribs can separate as the uterus grows higher. I have felt baby move around there. I remember it with my last pregnancy I don't think it's anything to worry about x
