Girls I have this pain on top of my right ribs too for about the last 3 to 4 weeks and as doolittle said it gets worse when I slouch on the sofa. It's almost like I burnt my skin, that stingy feeling. I was at the docs today and said it to him, basically it's normal, he did say it should ease off a little when the baby's head moves down and takes some pressure off the top of the rib area. He said if it's that bad then take paracetamol. I'll suffer it rather than take pain killers but it does get so bad at times.
I asked was there anything I could take for the pains in my legs at night as they were quite bad the last two nights. He said "well there is always getting up in the middle of the night to the baby for night feeds". Ok, point taken, I'll suffer the leg pains too.
He did say make sure and drink plenty of fluid.
