Are you having braxton-hicks when you roll over? I seem to always have one when I go from one side to the other at night. If I try to flip over when I'm having one it is very painful.

I had severe rib pain before I had my amnio reduction (due to too much amnio fluid and premature labor, not rib pain). I assumed it was because my uterus was so big that it was pushing up on my ribs and causing them to get out of whack.

Have you tried the "pillow mountain"? My ribs hurt when I lay on one side for a while too, then I turn over, and it eventually starts hurting on the other side too. BUT, the pillow mountain DOES help!
I get crazy round ligament pain (so lower/side of belly) and rolling over without preparation (holding my belly and "lifting" it as I roll) is a sure fire OUCH! And the stabbing pain can last for minutes too. A friend of mine had one of her ribs "pop" and it caused her problems from there on out.
Maybe show your care provider exactly where you feel the pain and see what they suggest?
Here's the video for the 'pillow mountain'. :) http://www.babysteals.com/wp/?p=3911
okay THAT was awful. Woke up with a huge knot in my back in major pain. I found sticking with 3 worked better. One for my head, one for between my legs and one for my arm like she showed in the video. :-)
