    Well I'm not even 23 weeks and last night I felt as if someone was trying to prize my ribs apart, I think I had just been sitting too long and was getting all squished up, standing up and walking about makes me feel better. I'm only 5'2" so I think it's because my insides don't have much further up they can go!

    Mine hurt all the time. This is my third so my bump is pretty large already. They hurt so bad last night it was hard to get comfy and go to sleep.

    Mine are ok (but I've got a wide ribcage anyway) I read that this is caused by your ribcage widening to make way for all your organs/bump pushing upwards. Apparently resting with a pillow behind you if you're sitting will help, and try not to sit for long periods x

    I'm so glad i've seen this thread as for the past few days i've had really sore ribs on the left hand side only. It's especially worse when i'm lying down and I turn from one side to the other. I was woken up by the pain last night :wacko:

    Glad to see that i'm not the only one with this. It's awful isn't it. Makes sense about the ribcage widening / adjusting though.

    I was just starting to cope with my hip pains and now this :dohh:

    My friend has this, it's called rib flare and is where everything is moving up into your rib cage to make way for baby. Sorry to say there is nothing they can do....
