Hi - I'm 26+3 and the last week or so, I've had the worst pain under my ribs on the left side. Is there anything anyone can recommend t alleviate it (other than standing up, which unfortunately, isn't an option at my desk for 8 sodding hours a day!).
I had this with DD and still have a numb bit of skin 2 years later. Now, 8 months pg with my 2nd, although I had it again at about 26-30 weeks it's gone now as this chap seems to have dropped right down away from my ribs. Now I get agonising pain in other areas..
Thanks ladies - have tried whinging, but no-one takes much notice, and have tried prodding him - but how hard is too hard..??? And he sems quite firmly wedged where he is. Have been in pain for over a week.
Fufulina -when did you last see your midwife? I don't want to scare you but sometimes pain under the ribs can be a sign of pre- eclampsia. If you haven't seen her since you have had it it wouldn't hurt to give her a call. The baby's position shouldn't really cause you actual pain like that.
I have to tickle-torture my DD's feet sometimes to pay her back for hooking her toes into my ribs and swinging when I was pg with her. It was really, really bad when I was driving. Thankfully, she eventually grew too big to do whatever it was she was doing, I think it lasted about 6 weeks iirc.
I didn't have pre-eclampsia, but as mrs b says, it might be worth getting checked.
Hi ladies - mrsboogie, I have my next appointment next Tuesday, so will definitely raise it then - thanks for the flag. Although I feel well other than this pain - and Carnical - so hearing you driving is a nightmare!
Thanks very much ladies. Symptom number 675 that I didn't sign up for. Humph...
