  • Don't be too worried about it, it could just be your organs adjusting to their new positions as your uterus grows upward toward your lungs. Everything is getting squished, so it is normal to have random pains. Plus, you have probably started feeling the baby move. My son seemed to enjoy kicking my rib cage...

    If it was inside your breast tissue, it could also be your breasts growing and preparing to breastfeed. Growing pains...

    If you are worried about breast cancer, let your doctor know at your next visit, even OBs know how to do a brerast exam and he/she can show you how to do a self exam (or ask a nurse, if you're uncomfortable with a male doc feeling you up).

  • It might have been everything growing and stretching. Are you still feeling that pain when she is really low?
