Painful Uterus

I am 38 weeks pregnant and over the past 4 weeks, there has been increasingly severe pain directly under my breasts. I thought it was my ribs and the baby kicking them, but actually last Friday my midwife pointed out that it was the top of my uterus. My consultant recommended Iburofen cream and it worked great for a couple of weeks. It seems to have stopped – with a vengeance.

Now I can’t lie flat, bras are impossible to wear and even turning right or left cause sharp pain.

Anyone else have this (or had this in a past pregnancy)? How did you cope and how quickly did it get better after you had the baby?
