Ooh, that sucks. Could you take a warm bath or go for a swim? That may help. The other thing you can do is get on your hands and knees and let your stomach hang low and loose. That may help get baby out of your ribs.

 I would try a warm bath or shower.  I also found stretches helped relieve some of the pressure.

I actually did break my ribs this pregnancy...well fractured, and I never had any kind of accident our anything, I was just in terrible pain and seriously felt like I was having a heart attack. Turns out pregnancy can cause spontaneous rib fractures. With the growing and expanding...

Sounds similar to my situation. I'm so petite and small framed that ii been havin rib pains that has been sooooo intense for bout 2 months now. When ii went to the doctors, ii found out her head was in my ribs and ii had cracked 2 ribs. so I'm in pain most of the day and its not much ii can do about it. It sucks, ii tried heatin pads, cold compresses, hot bath. Its hard for me to sit or lay in a comfortable posistion. Standing isn't too bad (at times). But ii hope things gets better for you!!
