Push and rub on the area where he is and he should move.

I have no idea, my LO has been up there for months! I have constant pain/soreness under my right rib...I just apply slight pressure which helps sometimes. Other than that I grin and bear it.

I feel your pain my little girl has not moved from my ribs my whole pregnancy. No matter what I do she will not move. It's to the point the doctor does not believe she going to turn down for a vaginal birth so I may have to get a c-section.

Try an icepack....they don't like the cold and they'll move away from it

 I usualy got on my hands and knees and rocked me hips to encourage baby to move.  Hope your LO finds a better position fo ryou.
