Rib pain in pregnancy

Rib pain is very common in late pregnancy. Your growing baby and uterus begin to push up into your ribs. Your other internal organs are all squished up into your ribs too.

Some simple exercises and stretches a few times a day can help ease rib pain. Try to stretch your body out to relieve pressure off your ribs. Change positions frequently to change the pressure as well.

    Mason loved putting his feet in my ribcage. SO uncomfortable!!! I used to try and just stretch out that side so that he had ample room and would maybe be encouraged to move his feet!
