  • Yep

    That is from everything inside having to shift around to make room for the growing baby. I had the worst chest pains and rib pains. My DD loved sticking her toes in my ribs...hurt like hell

  • Yes. Your muscles are stretching and things are moving around. Usually aches come and go and are completely normal. If the ache turns into pain, becomes unbearable, or you start to worry, bring it up to your doc/midwife. They would be able to help relieve any fears.

  • Your body is changing, stretching and accommodating your baby. I had aches in my sides frequently. Especially with my 1st DD. She sat so high that she ended up spreading my ribcage out 3"! But, if you are concerned, call your doctor or his nurse.
