Ribs feeling bruised/pain?!


For the last week or so, right under my boobs/my ribs are feeling bruised and painful!

i dont know why, i think it could be a couple of reasons!


1. i dont know if my bras are too tight and thats whats hurting, i am wearing non wired maternity bras but the other day i did have to wear a wired bra and it was so tight i had to undo it halfway through the night!

2. everyone is saying my bump is still really high and it does feel high, i find it hard to sit down because my belly is just right there squishing my ribs! i prefer to stand up so im stretched out a bit!

3. my midwife told me a pain in your ribs/under your boobs is a sign of preeclampsia and to look out for it. but i keep having my urine & BP tested and they are fine! i also have no swelling yet which is another main sign so i dont think it is this one!


does anyone else have this?? its so uncomfortable and hurts when i cough etc like i have broken a rib!!

Me too ! I'm 32 weeks and I have this pain. Almost unbearable some times. I had it exactly the same in my previous pregnancy. It is caused by by your uterus pushing your ribs apart. It's so say very common and nothing to worry about. I get a bit of relief by stretching out and lieing down on my side. I feel your pain, my ribs are excruciating at the moment! Xx

Me too - I'm finding it very painful

I just have to lie flat and stretch out to get some relief, but it doesn't last long....

It's unbearable sometimes. A nice warm bath is a nice way to relieve the pain, if only temporarily. I keep reminding myself it will be worth all the pain in the end :-) x

My ribs hurt really bad for a while, but the babies dropped down and it isn't so painful anymore (swimming helped relieved the pain a bit btw). Also, there was a period where one of the little guys must've been hooking his foot under a particular part of my ribcage it was so painful, but in a small concentrated area! I pushed down on that part and the pain would go away for a little while, but then return lol!
As far as bras- I found a really comfy one at Walmart of all places. Not too tight, but gives support. The only annoying part is the pads in it are removable. It's the only bra I've been wearing since I bought it. I tried wearing another new one (the ladies have gotten big!), but it was painful so back to the cheap, comfy wal-mart bra!

I also have this pain, had my urine and bp checked as I was having really bad headaches as well, everything came back fine, I had a growth scan which showed my little girl had her legs pushing right up there! Little monkey! Haha x
