Currently 22 weeks pregnant, if I take a deep breath or move in certain ways it's sore under ribs right side, had anyone else had this, or had it and it wasn't anything major

Please phone your maternity unit, this can be a sign of pre-eclampsia

Midwife doesn't think that's what it is

Yes OP!
In both pregnancies I had like a nerve type pain in one of my ribs. I actually became convinced I had shingles at one point because it was so painful. Second time around I couldn’t wear bras for weeks.

I found it was actually all posture related for me. If I made a conscious effort to keep more upright and stretch up frequently, it would go away.

Might not be the same, but I had to jump on because it baffled me at the time

PP was it just right at the bottom of ur ribs where they end, I feel it when I cough, sneeze or laugh, really uncomfortable.

Yes, just on one side. Felt like an irritation, tingly feeling. However, get checked out if you’re not sure, just wanted to share my experience x

I had this and turned out to be gallstones.

I had this in my last pregnancy and o have it now at 32 weeks. I never found out what it was and was told all the way through that it wasn't pre eclampsia. Until my protein shot up and they then told me that I had pre eclampsia.

I definitely don't have pre eclampsia now and I'm getting regular liver function and kidney function bloods and im fine currently.

I have this and mentioned it to the midwife and she didn't add it to my notes, just wrote that I was feeling well. I'd also mentioned a few other symptoms /discomfort I'd been having at the appointment which weren't noted.
I am still experiencing the pain, like a PP says wearing a bra is difficult, I open it at some point for a rest. I have bought bra band extenders too!

I hope it is nothing but would always advise that you mention it.
I am checking my own urine every few days and will flag if I notice any changes.

Baby DS used to wedge his feet in there. <wistful fond memories>

it was pretty uncomfy!!

Gallstones can go nuts in pregnancy. Is it worse after a fatty meal?

Oh gosh I’ve been having this dull pain in my right ribs and was thinking gallstones. Hopefully not but sounds like it. Can they go on their own or is it going to be hell? 😢 @FourTeaFallOut @Debsdonein

No they won't go on their own. You will need to have your gallbladder out. Best thing I ever did.

I think it depends. I know that if the pain is mild and infrequent they talk about making dietary changes but I had my gallbladder removed.

You need to speak to your midwife or/and gp.

Thank you both 😖

I suffered this so badly with my daughter it was really painful. I'd be in tears by the end of the working day and used to lie down ever dinner time. You have my sympathy.

The Dr thinks my pain might be muscular
