  • how far along are you? cuz when i was getting DS foot was always in my ribs or chest. one night i swear he kicked my lungs it took my breath away and it was not fun. when baby starts to drop, the pressure will be relieved on your lungs but will be once again back on your bladder lol yay for being preggo! (actually tho, i really enjoyed it)

  • How pregnant are you? It could be the baby pushing up on your rib cage. Or just the extra weight weighing heavy on your chest. I remember feeling like this when I was really pregnant like 7 or 8 months. Good luck to you.

  • it could be the way your baby is positioned or it could be a gas bubble as well. I went to the ER for the same pain and they told me i had a gas bubble right under my rib cage and that was causing the pains in my chest. I took gas X and it went away within a couple days. If your really conserned and the pain is too much definitly call the nurse and ask for her opinion.

  • Hm... well it definitly isnt the baby in your rib cage. Too early for that. Well, i know that all your intestines and such are pushing up which can cause some discomfort. Or like i said it could be a gas bubble which also gave me trouble when i coughed and took deep breaths.
