    I keep having these pressurized feelings underneath my ribs and it kind of hurts when I sit down because it feels squashed underneath my breast and ribs. My back is also killing me and I am finding it hard to sit up straight. Is this the baby underneath my ribs or what?

    :dohh:

    I have the same thing. I've got the bum under my right rib and the feet under my left one. If I slightly slouch forward, I get a kick or movement which hurts my ribs, like I'm squishing the LO. I've gotten used to leaning back a lot in my chair at work just to give 'em more room.

    I had this too at 27 weeks. It could possibly be the baby but it is more than likely your uterus is growing making your ribs sore.

    Yeah sounds like it. If I use my bump to rest my arm on he fidgets it off, dont feel like a leg though feels like his pushing my arm up with his butt!

    Yeah hun more than likely, if its uncomfortable try gently rubbing where she's shoving her foot and she may be nice and move it for you, my little one does but then he tries to push it out my belly button instead!

    Get used to it! I've had a baby crammed under there for MONTHS!!! Just wait until the baby's foot gets wedged between your ribs and you're afraid to bend over to do things like wipe after going to the bathroom because you don't want to break their foot ... :rofl:
