YEOOooowww!! belly pain

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This little boy must be growing! I'm pretty sure that he is still breech and that his little head is the cause of all of my pain, but holy cow I can hardly walk around at the moment!

The top of my belly on the right side (below ribs) feels so bruised and acutely painful that it even hurts to touch the skin. I'm lying low until things hopefully don't hurt as much. Anyone else? I remember this to some extent with the other girls but not to where I couldn't be up and about!

I share your pain - literally. My baby is breech too and only recently did I start feeling that stabbing pain under my ribs as if there was very severe bruising - almost hurts just to breathe!!!
I heard there is a way to encourage them to flip - or at least create more space so there's room for them to flip. It's called the Webster Technique. There's a chiropractor here that does it so I'm going to try her out. Also, my acupuncturist can help w/ that too but she wont do it until I'm 37 weeks.
Good luck! Here's hoping you can take it easy.

This week I started to get the same rib pain I got with all my babies. It is a good reminder that I only have a little more to go before baby is born!! It really flares up in the car or on the couch.

Yeah, count me in with the rib pain, too. I totally get that on the couch and in the car. It just burns sometimes, esp if I try to get in a sitting position where I have my feet up. Lying down is okay. I'm really getting excited about having my baby, and just can't wait to have her evicted from my belly! My OB said she is head down, though. It's so weird to try to think of how she is probably positioned right now.

My rib pain is more at the back in my false ribs (both sides). I get DH to stand behind me and squeeze them back into a more normal position with his big hands as they're all spreading to make room just now. It's bliss but a hard position for him to maintain for long.

I keep getting charlie-horses in my abdominal wall, my babe is cephalic but every now and then a little (or should i say long, they feel as big as his sisters were already!) foot pokes out hard and for a while and my muscles spasm - it can seriously put a downer on a whole day when i can barely move without it hurting and i've been getting them for months and STILL haven't figured out how to relieve them!
