I'm 31 weeks and have been getting a stabbing pain under my ribs/in my diaphragm on the front left hand side. It only happens at night and mainly when I turn from one side to the other. So it's not all the time thank god but when it does happen I am almost crying from the pain (and waking up poor DH!). It helps a bit when I press the tender spot but then it comes back.
I know rib pain in pregnancy is quite common, especially for small women like me . Just wondered if anyone has found a solution? Stretches? Chiropractor? Deep heat...?
I lay on that side when it's happend to me, currently 37 weeks and baby likes to push up right against my left side. I just lay on it so it encourages baby to shift a little. You are right tho it is sore.
Just to update - I realised last night that the pain is much less if I hold on to my bump when turning over. So basically I think it's caused by the weight of the bump pulling on my ribs (or the tendons/muscles there anyway). At least I have a sort of solution...
