  • Odds are the baby is just getting bigger and making it hurt. You are at the stage where the baby is getting alot longer and bigger and you will find they start moving and kicking in places you didnt know they could. If you are worried call the nurse on call. They can tell you if they feel you should come in.

  • you may have the same issue my mom had with all 3 of us children... when she was pregnant with us (but mostly my younger brother) he used to kick her in the ribs and occasionally got his lil foot stuck in there. And now my dd keeps kicking me hard in the ribs and loves to put lots of pressure on them as well. I am 29 weeks pregnant. The baby is just getting bigger and reaching new places to torture you. haha. You are probably just experiancing this lovely step in your pregnancy but if it concerns you that much call your doc or nurse and ask what they think. but it is most likely just your baby kicking and punching around in there and since its such a small place it is painful. I feel your pain. Feel better!!!!
