Re: pain under rib cage

I have heard that during pregnancy your rib cage expands to provide additional room for the baby. I am now 25 weeks and have noticed that rib discomfort is becoming quite common. As far as the poking goes,it could very well be the baby starting to move upward and getting little body parts under the ribs.
