    A week ago i had a terrible cough and developed a pain in my left side,in my ribs.i hurt when i cough and have to move from lying down to getting up.also hurts sometimes when i stretch.its the kind of pain that takes my breath away.when i cough i have to hold on to my side.it kinda got better yesterday but tonight i coughed and sort of felt almost a crunching sensation,cant explain,was only small but the pain has come back worse.didnt go to doc as thought i would be wasting time,thought it was just bruising from coughog so much.but now it really hurts!when i breathe in deeply i can feel the pain.i might have just bruised it again when i coughed tonight.have my 20week scan on mon so should i ask then?dont want to waste anyones time. Any ideas or anyone been thru this?
