Rib pain

Hey! I am 10 1/2 wks preggo. I have had a shooting pain in my rib cage all day. It is only on the right side. I thought at first it maybe trapped gas, but it has continued all day. It tends to be getting a little worse. Anyone have any ideas? I was thinking possible pleurisy (sp).

  • Have you had a prenatal exam yet? It can possibly be a simple pulled muscle. You may have lifted something wrong or bent/turned the wrong way. Sometimes that can also make it hard to take a deep breath. But, if it continues for more than a day, you should probably call your doctor.
