Hi Just wondering if anyone has experienced a slight discomfort/pain right under boobs at the ribcage? I'm wondering if my ribs are expanding and maybe this is whats casuing the slight discomfort... I'm 27 weeks.. Thanks Lila

Lila, I had that pain at around 14 weeks but its gone now. My aunt said it was the ribcage expanding but I said that to the consultant and he was non-committal about it. Its really sore isnt it?

thanks Hokey for the reply - yes it can be sore but its more uncomfortable that anything. I had it before - can't remember how many weeks I was though but I'm sure its just as you said the rib cage expanding. I've a consultant appt this week so will mention it then if its still there

I've had it from about week 16 and it is really sore... It's now beginning to creep around to my back! At this stage I'm just used to it but it is really sore. I dont usually get it until the afternoon though and it lasts til night time.. The joys.

Yep, I get this too, Im due next week and still have it I'm sorry to say... it feels a bit like bruising I think its the muscles straining to carry the weight of the bump! Dr. seahorse :o0
