slight pinching sensation in right side of chest?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I had cholestasis with dc1, not with dc2, and am now 33 wks with dc3. (Cholestasis is a liver condition that makes you itch like crazy, sometimes causes upper right quadrant -right side of chest-- sensation, and can put baby at slight risk). I have no itching and feel otherwise fine but do have the chest sensation every so often.

Any one (doesn't have to be a cholestasis mama - in fact, I'd especially like to hear from non-cholestasis mamas) have occasional slight pinching sensation in right side of chest? Any ideas as to what it could be? Gall bladder, etc.?
Thanks in advance!

It could be your gallbladder, or it could be heartburn. I have that a lot, had it a lot more during my 1st pregnancy. The MWs were worried about my gallbladder and I had an U/S on it and even saw a specialist, all to conclude my gallbladder was fine and I just have really bad heartburn that even Rx's cannot knock.

Thanks, Rubyruby!
Anyone else experience this?

I have experienced this, but I don't know what it is. I'll get concerned about it and then it goes away for a while and so I forget about it. I'd love to hear from more people, though.
