  • No the baby can't get stuck in the rib cage although it can certainly feel like he/she is! You can put your feet up and drink lots of water and use a cold rag on your stomach to encourage the baby to move around if it gets too painful. I almost cried when mine was in my ribcage bc it hurt so bad!
    I do know of several people whose ribs got cracked from the baby kicking so hard, but if he/she is in the breech position, then its a lot harder to do any serious damage. Good luck hon and remember.. its only another month or so!

  • well their head can certainly press on your ribcage, but if you mean like stuck as in your ribs holding the head in a certain spot, no.
