I have to ask.. do you ladies know much you mean too me? This group is just so SUPPORTIVE..I called my Regular Doc this morning after i posted.. I explained what was going on, and they referred me BACK too my OB, they said it sounded like a Pregnancy related issue.... So, I called my OB, and they sent me too L&D. I got there about noon, and they hooked me up, and I was having contractions...They actually FINALLY showed up this time..Go figure..The one time I do not go for them, and they show up.. They were just tiny little blips on the radar, but showed up just the same.. I had about 15 of them in a 2 hr period..I think they are just Braxton Hicks... Anyway, My OB ordered some blood work while I was there, they told me the name, but I forget.. Some kind of blood work that looks too see if you are having some kind of gall bladder issues, or pancreas problems.. Well those came back NORMAL, so they sent me home. Then my OB contacted my regular doc, and I will go see him tomorrow morning for more testing..

I am wondering if it is possible too have a wad of Muscle compressed up under my left boob,or maybe an organ being compressed?? ? If you were too take your hand, and rub right under my left boob, there is a HUGE mass, sort of like a Knot where I feel this pain.. It is squishy, and when you push on it , it is very very tender..If I move the wrong way I get sharp shooting pains in this area as well, but these pains like travel too my belly button, it is really weird.. I was washing my hair this morning,and when I lifted both my arms up too rinse my hair, I got shooting pains.. in this area..Also even from early on in my pregnancy I was never able too lay on my left side. If i were too lay on my left side, I would get this sharp shooting pain, and it felt like something was being pulled, and I would have too quickly switch too my right side. I am not saying I am going too die, or that the baby is harmed, I am not even saying it is anything remotely harmful, I just know it is painfull, all day every day..and knowing for sure what it is would ease my mind alot..I kept thinking my placenta was detaching Is it even possible too have muscle or maybe something compressed that high up?directly under my left boob,and right at the top of my rib cage..
So, that is about it...Any thoughts?

I honestly don't know, I tried googling but I couldn't come up with exactly what your feeling. I'm sorry that you are uncomfortable and aren't getting straight answers from the docs. I hope they are able to give you some feedback tomorrow. s

I get this everytime I'm pg. Like a wad of fat but feels like a muscle. I know what you're saying. I just figured it was hormonal and nothing has ever come of it. Hope you get some good answers soon.

have you seen a chiropractor? a good adjustment might make a world of difference to you. how about swimming and letting your legs hang in the water (oooo i loved that when i was pregnant with my son)? or yoga or some sort of stretching?

i have been taking magnesium for my constant BH, that and lots of water/tea. it helps loads until i get tired, then i just need sleep.

good thing about the gall bladder etc, says the woman with no gall bladder.
