Hi not sure if this is something or nothing. I'm 35 weeks tomorrow. I've been fine all day up until about 2 hours ago now I've got a bit of chest pain. It's not affecting my breathing so I think it's just muscular it's on my right side behind my boob and now my right arm feels heavy and the muscle hurts around my side when i lift my arm and my hand feels a bit numb. Has anyone else had anything similar? Thanks for any advice.

You should call 999 in case of heart problems.

I phoned the advice line in my maternity notes and was told to go straight to a&e. So I've been and waited over 4 hours and then walked out and come home. I can't believe they put so many drunken idiots before a heavily pregnant woman with chest pains. There's nothing I can do now till morning when I will try another hospital as the first one clearly wasn't interested.

That's really bad. when I went into hospital with chest pains (was 20w then) it was a busy Saturday night but they pushed me forward as I was pregnant. found out it was just really bad heartburn blush

I can't get over how they completely ignored you. I'm sorry

That's terrible, at the least could be heartburn at the worse blood clot/heart attack
Also pre eclampsia can have pain similar.
When I had chest pain (wasn't even pregnant as the time) .
As soon as I told the receptionist at a&e I was ushed to majors where I had loads of tests done.
How are you feeling now?
