  • I experience that too, she used to kill my ribs! I felt like I'd been hit by a semi or something. now that she's moved down she is hurting my pelvis and sometimes she gets hyper and moves all over the place and it kills everywhere just cuz she is like thrashing around lol. it's okay, nothing to worry about :)

  • My DD was tall, 22 inches when she was born, and I am only 5'2", so, do the math, she was ALL up in my ribs. And it was like that for me, she would move and hurt so much it make me want to throw up.

  • Oh I bruised my moms ribs when she was carrying me. My daughter stayed in the same spot so when she kicked, it hurt and I was bruised as well

  • Dang, you have more crap going on and more complaints then any pregnant woman I know! Maybe you should make an OB appt to talk to your doc about all your problems

  • Mine hurts when he moves- But it hurts down around my pelvis now-not so much in my rib cage anymore- Im only 5 feet tall-and they think he is almost 10 lbs...

  • I don't have my baby girl kicking my ribs, I'm not that far along yet, but she does enjoy kicking my cervix now and again and that hurts! I guess if they kick a sensitive enough spot or kick it repeatedly it would hurt.
