Have you ever had sharp pains in your ribs?

The other night I thought I was going to die. I started getting these really sharp pains on my left side in my lower rib area. It felt like my daughter had her toes stuck up there and it was not moving. I called my doctor and they where like they didn't have a clue what was going on but that is nothing I just want to know if my little girl is playing with my ribs or is there something bad going on.
Oh...I am 36 weeks about to be 37

  • my twins were always beating up on my ribs, so bad in fact, that they were black and blue all the time for month 6.5 to 8 it was horrible, at one point, we all thought for sure that they had broken at least one of my ribs, good luck momma, and i was told to try sleeping sitting up like in a lazy boy or something.

  • i had some pain in my lower rib area and it ended up being rib flaring, which is just your ribs flaring out at the bottom to make room for some of the other inside stuff that gets pushed up. but also my son used to curl his toes around my bottom ribs (or at least thats what it felt like!) and push off or something. lol the joys of pregnancy!

  • My son used to kick me so hard I would bruise on the outside ... so I totally understand that pain and its just a new area inside you that has never been touched like that before I am sure everything is fine but if you feel something is wrong definitely get it checked
