anybody else have this problem?? im 32 weeks and his bum is causing pain on one side. i wish he'd shift his bum over to the other side to give this one a break! Any tips for easing rib pain?

Ha! I had a damn great bony hard skull under mine. My cure was having the little bugger turned at 37 weeks.

Sorry can't be any more help. smile

Not much you can do, he should move eventually, and then you'll get the relief of him dropping. smile

Get your mw to check its not a head, although at this stage nothing to worry about as will probably turn by itself smile

oh no paschaelina, couldnt imagine a head there at that stage. definately think its a bum as hes been head down last two appointments. must be a big bum though cause cant rem this with previous pregnancies!

I had this too. I spent a lots of time leaning back on the sofa trying to make my body as long as possible. (Not easy, I'm not tall, I have a short body and long legs.)
I felt like the underside of my ribs was battered and bruised from her bum, then she'd kick me in the ribs on the other side. confused

Sorry, not much help, but lots of sympathy.

I've got a bony skull rammed under my ribs this end, too. It's absolutely excruciating - I feel like my ribcage is going to pop. The only thing that works to ease it is lying down or getting on all fours with my bum in the air....neither of which solution is entirely practical at work or in the dairy aisle in Sainsburys.

I'm another one who only had rib pain when there was a head there. He turned breech at ~33 weeks and went back down at ~34 - only spent a week down there but made the most of it! hmm

I had that too, at about the same stage! Only respite was lying down flat on my back. Hard to do when you've got a toddler to deal with. Baby's head was well engaged early on and the birth was a doddle (as births go!) so I forgave her.

Yep, me too and I know it's a bum 'cos I got them to check last week. grin He's been wedged there for weeks and always kicks the same exact spot just under my ribs on the right. When he really gets going it's bloody painful. You have all my sympathy too! I guess we should take comfort from the fact they're the right way up and seem to be staying put. smile
