Morning All I just want to know if what I'm feeling is some sort of growing or stretching pain, or if I need to be concerned. Last night, everything was fine until about 9pm when I stood up to go to bed. I went to get a glass of water and got a very bad stabbing cramping pain around my rib cage, just under my boobs. It was so bad I had to sit down clutching my ribs, and it almost brought tears to my eyes. It eased off after about 5-10 minutes, so I went to bed. I've woke up twice in the night to go to the loo and everything was okay. Now this morning I have noticed that all of my ribs feel bruised, really as if I've been punched. And more worrying, when I stand up or walk, I get a stabbing pain in my lower right abdomen. It is quite painful, to the stage that I am holding my lower tummy when I walk. I already have quite a large bump, and it is at the underside/bottom of the bump. I have had no bleeding whatsoever, and no extra or lessening of normal cm. Is this normal, or should I call the midwife?
