Anyone else have sore ribs? My back has been killing me and I think it's actually my ribs, but the last couple days, I have noticed the FRONT of my ribs, on the left side, bottom two ribs (the "floating" ribs) are sooooo tender to the touch... like, very tender. I am getting a massage tomorrow, have my midwife/30 week appt on Wednesday, and Chiro on Thursday... so I will ask about it at all 3... Just wondering if there is anything I need to be worried about, or if this is a normal growing pain.
From what I gather, it's normal due to baby growing and everything getting pushed up, but I've read some other stuff saying it's a sign of pre-e or placental abruption/tear/bleed... I guess I'm just not really sure what I should be watching for?
I've had a couple of days where i felt like there might of been a foot in my ribs but i wasn't sure if baby could actually get up that high yet. Mostly it seems like he likes to be down low because of the continual sharp cervix pains i get during movement. >_>
