Are your ribs sore?

I'm 34 wks. and the upper sides of my ribs hurt. Has this happened to you? I am still rather skinny where my rib area is (you can still see them and then my stomach comes out in an enormous bulge) so I"m wondering if it's putting a lot of pressure there or something.

  • I don't feel her that high, tho. Could she be that high and I just don't know it?

  • From the time I was 6 months pregnant until I delivered, I had a horrible pain in my upper ribs. It was constant, until I laid down. As soon as he game out, the pain was gone. I'm almost certain it was a foot or something. I feel your pain! Hopefully, he'll move soon and you'll be relieved. Good luck! :-)
