Just under my breast in my rib cage im feeling a pain. Should I be worried?

If in doubt, call your MW.

As reassurance, I have had very sore ribs in the same place (tender to the touch) in both my pregnancies but it tends to start earlier for me, about 25 weeks. I was assured it's my ribs being softer and everything bring pushed up that causes the pain, so nothing to worry about. Just very uncomfortable!

But always worth checking.

Yes it might be epi gastric pain esp if under your right breast so get checked out along with BP and urine flowers

I'm not gasy and I'm passing bowels very frequently. I've had the pain there for a couple of days now.

Honestly call your midwife/hospital. When did you last have your bloods and urine checked?
I've had PE several times, it can come on fast and is dangerous. Chances are you are absolutely fine but pain there is one of the symptoms so get checked out
