I am 31+6 and have developed an agonising pain in my left side, just under my bra strap. It hurts to move/breath/lift do anything! I am guessing it's the position of the baby pressing on the area, has anyone experienced this? Any tips? Will it improve when/if the baby moves? Feels like I have cracked a rib!
Another rib sufferer here. It's not so bad when I stand up but lying down is a nightmare. I can't sleep with it. I don't feel like the baby is stuck under my ribs, I feel like my rib cage is stretching and expanding out.
Things that help.....putting a cushion under my ribs in bed with a pillow wedged into my back to give me more support.
I'm back to yoga tomorrow after there's been a 2 week break so hoping this might help or get some advice from the teacher on anything I can do.
Thanks, sorry you are suffering too! Moving in bed is a nightmare! I am currently led with a wheat bag wrapped around me which is helping a bit. Hoping the baby moves soon, although the Pelvic pain has improved so I expect that will return when it moves down, only 8 weeks to go.......
Bearer of bad news but my lady is 3/5 engaged, I'm 39 weeks and she fractured a rib last week..it has a lot to do with baby's leg length and your torso height! An ice pack should help in the sense baby should move away from the area!
That's what I keep thinking has happened, the pain is so intense and I have read about baby's fracturing ribs. But even if it is that nothing to be done anyway. Hope these last couple of weeks go quickly for you OhMjh. I have a hot wheat bag on it at the moment, not sure I could manage ice! Hope the warmth doesn't encouage the baby! LittlePink my pregnancy had been going really quick up until this last week or so, now I am counting down the days, I think once Nov is out of the way it will go fast with all the build up to Christmas.
