Okay is it really possible for the baby to kick your ribs so hard that baby actually dislodges them? This baby is kicking my ribs really hard and it hurts like the dickens but I can't imagine him kicking hard enough to pop them out of place.

yes it is possible, I seperated my moms ribs and tore the cartilidge between 2 of them, and my friend's son broke her rib just last year. That being said, that's only 2 people out of the many in my life that have been pregnant.

I've heard of women having a rib break from baby kicking it, but never known anyone IRL that it happened to.

I wonder what they do for you if you have a broken rib. I don't think baby will kick hard enough to break my ribs but just wondering.

Not much they could do because there's not much you can do for ribs anyway. I'm glad this baby is so far staying away from my ribs

with my friend they didn't do anything, they just said if it hurt too bad in labor they could try to numb the area or do a c-section but she made it through

I cracked a rib from coughing about a month ago -- there's nothing they can do. Even if you're not pregnant, there's really no treatment other than X-ray to confirm and then load you up on vicodin and tell you not to move too much for a few weeks.

When you're pregnant, you don't get the confirmation X-ray or the vicodin, just lots of extra strength tylenol. I had to sleep in a recliner for about 2 weeks until I could lie on my side again, and I couldn't drive for about a week.

They say it takes about 6-8 weeks to fully heal; like I said, mine was just about a month ago and aside from twinges if I move or twist oddly, it doesn't bother me at all anymore.

One of my ribs popped out of place a few weeks ago, its extremely painful pretty much all the time. I go for massage therapy but it only helps for a short time. The same thing happened with DD (I was in a car accident years ago which I think makes the poor rib susceptible), and it cleared up on its own after I gave birth.
