ELCS booked next mon, just seem to be having an uncomfortable day, started with wind/indigestion and now I have this aching pain below ribs. Hurts if I slouch, bend over keyboard.

It could be the baby pressing feet/knees/bum into your ribs, I get this a lot (39w) and it eases when baby changes position.

It can just be rib flare but especially when coupled with indigestion/wind it can be a sign of something else too.

Are you well? Last appointment with midwife was when?

It's almost certainly the pressure on your ribs- the bending over hurting is a sign that the baby is just wedged up highh- but please keep an eye on it and consider getting checked out if you develop other symptoms or it worsens.
