  • Its normal unfortunately. I'm the same as you and my pain is in my pelvic area. And my lower back.OMG it hurts I cant sleep cause of it. Your baby might be in your ribs and that's while you are having difficulty.

  • It sounds pretty normal, try taking a little Tylenol. The bigger the baby gets the more uncomfortable it's going to get as things stretch and move. If it gets too bad you can always go in and have the Dr. check you over, they are used to worried mom's and completely understand.

  • It's normal. Eventually she'll move to a slightly lower position and you'll get a bit of relief (until/unless she decides to go back to where she was). And in another month or month and a half, she'll probably drop and you'll get a lot of relief. But other than wait, I don't think there's much you can do since she's not responding to your requests.

  • Sounds like the joy of pregnancy to me. :) That little monster is going to do everything she can to do make you uncomfortable until the glorious day she comes out! Try drinking some apple juice to try to get her wiggling, and maybe you can throw her off balance and get her out of your ribs!
