I'm currently 24+5 and am suffering severe rib pain, does anyone have any suggestions on how to get some relief? It literally wakes me out of my sleepconfused

Paracetamol and spend some time on all fours rocking your pelvis to hopefully loosen off a tad.

Sympathies. I'm afraid it gets worse in the last trimester too!

I was afraid that's what people would say. It's awful sad

No advice, just sympathy. I remember that feeling like my ribs were being slowly broken from the inside.

Just one little thing OP. If you have any other indicators of pre-eclampsia please see your midwife with rib pain. I remembered this morning this was one of my early indicators. Better safe than sorry smile

Hope it's eased off a bit now.

Really? I didn't know that my ankles are starting to swell as well I think that's a sign i will say to my midwife and see what she thinks

Sorry haven't been back on since Tuesday - hopefully you have now seen your midwife, but yes rib pain was one of my big indicators that things were getting worse.
