  • If you have reason why that rib MIGHT be cracked; fall, abuse, etc, then you really should get to an urgent care or go in to your Dr ASAP. There's not much they can do but you need to have it checked.

  • From what you described, it is what I was in pain with for 5 months of each of my pregnancies. The baby is sticking one of his/her body parts up under your rib cage. It will be more painful as the baby grows, but also as it grows you will be able to push it back down and hope that your baby is not as stubborn as mine where and does not shove the body part back where he/she wants it.

  • What vbongard said.

    It's prolly just your baby up in your ribs.
