Rib Pain?

So excited to only have 99 days left tool my due date! But my left ribs hurt so bad. Anyone else have this problem and what can be done to relieve it?

Oh man, I remember going through exactly that during my pregnancy.  It sucked so bad, it was on my right side though.  I was hoping it would go away when my baby turned.  Nope! Instead she put her foot in my rib the rest of my pregnancy.  I never found a way to stop that pain.  I just would massage the area.  I laugh about it now but at the time it drove me crazy.  Maybe ask your doctor if he/she has any tips.

I did. I had to go to the ER it got so bad. Ice, heat, stretching, and rest did nothing for me. The ER gave me a Motrin shot and told me to rest and keep taking Motrin. The pain completely subsided a couple days later. Hope you feel better!
