  • This happened to me Doc said that in the end of pregnancy the baby runs out of room! My son had his leg's and feet wedged up under my rib's..I too was in soooo much pain! It sucks, and towards the end I found myself taking Tylenol more often to ease it. Pushing in on my rib's also helped in the area that he was pressing. It was on my right side, always. Hang in there I KNOW your pain!! But if you want to ease your mind, tell the Doc..see if he or she seems concerned. I had a text book pregnancy so they didn't worry about me at all. OH and p.s I was 110 lbs when I got pregnant...I gained 50 lbs and gave birth to a 10 lb 0 oz baby boy! So be prepared for a big baby ;) Just joking around with you, but you never know!

  • OH and a heating pad on it, felt AMAZING!! Do not leave the heating pad on for too long though...your stomach's already an oven for baby!

  • Oh, I did all of that when I was pregnant. Especially having a hard time to roll over because I was in pain and not being able to stand up. It's normal!
