Rib pain in early pregnancy, 16 weeks

Hi all

I'm 16 weeks and developed pain in ribs that feels like I'm being squashed or like the day after a hard work out.

I've had a v bad cough for past few weeks and I thought it was through coughing but now the cough is getting better and pain is getting worse.

Anyone else had this? xx

Ive had rib pain on and off since about 16wk, im now 36wk. Its just under the bra line and feels like its my ribs getting pushed out. I find a hotwater bottle and a little rest helps me. Hope you feel better

Went to hospital to get checked out and they said strained chest, muscles through coughing and as a result of my diaphragm being pushed upwards.

They gave me a painkiller that they give to ladies in labour so I can get some peace and cough up the rest of the crap that's down there! Looking forward to some happier days ahead!
