    OMG I feel like baby has done some serious damage to my top left rib.... I cant turn round properly (really struggling to drive) and when I breathe out I feel the pain there...

    Anyone got any idea what it is or experienced this themselves???

    When you say top left do you actually mean the bottom one at your bump or the top one near your boob?

    Women's lower rib cage is deliberately flexible to stop them breaking in pregnancy but bruising is possible :hug: xxxxxxxx

    I meant right rib lol (where's my brain) but its the rib just under my boob only on my right side..... really bloody hurts! at first I thought babys foot was just staying there but its been 24 hours now so it cant just be his foot being there. He always kicks there though so I think he may have just bruised it....

    there is also something where the ligaments between the ribs can get inflamed with the stretching etc......and probably babies paws being there have aggrevated things too. x

    I had to strap mine up the other week as I swore I had done damage to mine. It started off feeling like a foot in the rib but then went on for about 3 days. Only had a relief when it was strapped but mw said it was the ligaments etc between the rib bones. x

    I used some elastic crepe bandage from the chemist and kind of mummified under my boobs and down to my waist not to tight but tight enough. I also used my huge tubagrip that goes round my middle from the physio for my SPD but don't know if you can buy them. x
