I don’t have much advice, but just wanted to say you aren’t alone! I’ve had this for quite a while and have been doing the same stuff as you. I find stretching out in the evening helps, and I also got a body pillow.
OP, I'm also 29 weeks pg and have a had a couple of weeks of this now. It's really sore! Like you all my tests are normal. For me though it's worse after eating (interesting that pp mentioned heartburn as I'm not getting typical heartburn symptoms but its got me wondering) and when I'm sitting upright - I find lying down or standing/walking are actually much better.
I've found that stretching both arms above my head every so often helps when I'm sitting down. also getting up and walking around for a bit. Sometimes a heat pack helps me, but not always. Have you tried a warm bath/shower before bed? Also, do you have a pregnancy pillow? I've got a big u-shaped one which is really comfortable at night,
Thanks everyone, it’s always reassuring to know you’re not alone!
Someone gave me a curly body pillow to try so I gave it a go last night but to be honest I ditched it about half 3, I kept waking up because I couldn’t move around [I’m a fidget lol, just like this baby!]
The pain is there pretty much all the time now, I guess I’ll just have to keep stretching & taking paracetamol and hope it doesn’t last for the next 11 or so weeks 🙈😖
Someone suggested heat packs, I might try and get one of them today & see if that helps...
Have you noticed if it gets any worse after eating fatty food? Pain under the right rib cage can be caused by gall stones. And gall stones are more common in pregnancy.
Having said that I had similar pain early on in my first pregnancy and it must have been my rib cage expanding as I had my gall bladder removed several years before. The pain reminded me a lot of the gall stone pain though.
