    Ouch!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I started to have some pains in my ribs last night on the right hand side very high up almost under my boobs,i put a hot water bottle on it and tried to do some stretching to see if that helped.It did for a while then this morning i have woken up in agony,i havent done anything that i can think of that would have caused me any pain but it hurts when i breath on that side to the point of tears.Can anyone help!!!! I dont want to go to hospital if its only stretching pains or should i call the midwives and see what they think??

    If you can help i would appreciate it !!!

    Its Official this baby is a footballer i went up to the hospital and they said my ribs are severly brusied from all the kicking!!!! I have to rest and take pain killers and hope it goes down they said its very common and that some babies have been known to dislocate ribs!!!!!:wacko:
    Lol feel so stupid for wasting there time but i really thought something major was going on i can hardly stand up and when i do i am hunched over because of the pain!!!
    Oh well !!!!!!

    I get this but only on the left and the pain gets so intense it feels as though I've been kicked by a horse. I wondered if it's anything to do with milk glands on the bra line? If you speak to the midwife do let me know! I'm glad you posted as I just thought I was being odd. Xx

    i have had this in both my other pregnancies & i am already getting it this time too, always on my right hand side. my midwife couldnt find a reason for it other than pain from everything being squashed upwards by your growing baby! i found that laying down flat was the only thing that helped a bit.

    i get this~!!! i get it mostly on my right hand side... its v sore, kinda like a really bad stitch... i guess it would make sense to be bruised from kicking, but i dont feel the kicking.. i guess that doesnt mean its not happening, ouchie! :(

    Yeah they said its normal and that baby's have been known to dislocate ribs with there kicking i really thought it was something serious i cant even stand up straight its so bad.Hopefully resting up with hot water bottles will help the bruising to go down!!
