I don't know, but if you're having problems breathing you should phone for medical help, or go to A&E. Do you suffer from asthma or anything?

If it's just pain it could be baby putting pressure/stuff stretching, but baby wouldn't be as high up as your ribs yet I think.

I've had my DS 10 weeks ago nearly now and suffered with this in pregnancy and thought it was baby in awkward position how ever I got the pain back a couple of weeks ago on right side under ribs and was rushed to hospital- was diagnosed as gallstones, it's common for pregnancy to bring it on apparently- I'm now waiting for an op to have gall bladder out! Make sure you go to docs today, or hospital if you haven't already you will probably be fast tracked as pregnant! It might not be this of course just sounds like what I had. Good luck and let us know how you are and get on.

I had terrible pains in my ribcage when pg with dc1. Midwife reassured me it as just stretching to make room for baby. I rested for a day and it added significantly.
Call the midwife, unless its actually a struggle to breathe - then you need a&e.

I have had similar pains in. Oth pregnancies so not necessarily something to worry about. However no one on the internet can medically assess you, so you need an urgent GP/midwife appt, or a&be of,your breathing is affected or you have other symptoms
