Hi ladies I am 35 weeks today and past 2 days have had agonising rib pain on my right hand side which I understand is normal as the uterus expands under my ribs however I'm not too sure it should be this painful?

I can't bend down or twist without it taking my breath away but sitting down is fine? Do you think I need to ring midwife? X

I rung triage after midwife told me to get more advice they said that it sounds muscular and to visit out of hours gp to see if they can prescribe something stronger yo ease pain ...

Hi coneywonder. I've been suffering from rib pain which I thought was muscular, but after examination by GP was told was a fracture that is likely caused by coughing/throwing up in my case. Have you been coughing by any chance?

Hi thanks for your reply. No I haven't and I haven't felt baby kick me up near my ribs either. I read it's a sign of pre e and freaked out but my hospital isn't worried x
