How can I relieve the pressure/soreness in my ribs??

Baby is starting to get big! It hurts all day and I'm beginning to feel like I've been hit by a truck when I wake up.. Any suggestions?

  • I don't have any suggestions for you. My daughter LOVED using my ribs for a jungle gym. When it got too bad I'd try to push her down out of my ribs, but it didn't work all that well.

  • Closer to the end the baby may drop a bit, that's all you can hope for

  • Toward the end, it helped me to get down on all fours and let the weight of the baby be off my ribs and hips, and then to rock a bit on my hands and knees.
