My ribs!!

29 weeks pregnant with my first and my ribs on my left hand side are agony! They're worse when sitting down which is bad as I sit at a desk all day. They feel like they're on fire. I don't know how I can deal with potentially 11 weeks plus of this. Help!!

I had this it was a bloody nightmare. Get thee on the co codamol sharpish.

There are some good pregnancy yoga stretches which help. Really good DVD by Tara Lee.

I had this terribly in my first pregnancy. From memory it started around 31 weeks, was terrible for a week or two and then improved a lot. Hopefully yours won't last until delivery.

I took cocodamol for a really bad headache one night (couldn't find paracetamol) and the baby ended up being really still that evening, was in a total panic til he was kicking away again in the morning. Don't know if it was a coincidence though?

I go to yoga on a Wednesday and felt much better Wednesday evening. I think it is good idea to buy a dvd and do it every day actually.

Oh that gives me some hope that it might only be temporary!

Have you got a pregnancy pillow? I know this may sound strange but when my LO has her feet under my ribs u prob the pillow between my lefts and shift me pelvis and she moves slightly, leaving my ribs foot and pain free smile

Yes, get a v pillow. That helps. Maybe a heat patch if needed. Check with GP too? Especially about codeine.

I have this!!! Does it go through to the corresponding side of your back too?

Just got this feeling today whist sleeping, I'm hoping the stretches from daisy birthing are going to help.

There's a name for it chostochondritus. I get it anyway and it is inflammation of the cartridge between the ribs and yes it's agony I hope the dr can give you something

Suffered terribly my entire 3rd trimester with this in my last pregnancy - he was breech.

This time I've got a head down baby and oh my, the difference it makes!!

I had this but was due to him being transverse breech and his head was pushed against my ribs and for the last 6 weeks it was absolute agony. It felt like my ribs were really badly bruised. Hopefully yours will ease soon.
