Re: horrible back pain and pregnant

As far back as I can remember, I have been having really bad rib & back pain. It is mostly on my right side. If I press on the top of my ribs (right under my breasts) it is very sore. The pain in my back comes and goes. It feels like a sharp throbbing (if that makes any sense). The pain in my back is almost exactly where the pain in my ribs is (as if it goes straight through the front to the back). I find that if I lay on my right side the pain gets worse. I've been using menthol patches on the site on my back @ night. That helps a little. I can vaguely remember having these pains with my first pregnancy; however, I don't remember if it was this uncomfortable. Good luck in the coming weeks!

Re: horrible back pain and pregnant

Hi -

If you haven't already done this, call your doctor's office and ask this question. Back and belly pain can indicate labor. You pay your doctor to take good care of you and the baby, and if you don't tell the doctor what is happening, the doctor cannot do his/her best for you.

As the mom of a preemie, I say call. Better safe!

Cheers! Barbara
