Pain Under Ribs

Rib pain when having twins

I am 26 weeks pregnant with twins, and every time I lay on my left side and most times when I'm on my right side I get this pain underneath my ribs? Its only when I lay down though? Anyone know what it is or why? I don't think it's the babies because they would hurt my ribs more when I'm sitting up and not stretched out. Any ideas on what this could be? Thanks.

Good luck

Good luck with your twin pregnancy and getting through the discomfort. I am 34 wks with b/g twins who are both lying transverse (or sideways). As you can imagine, that makes things even more uncomfortable. All in all, though, my pregnancy has gone really well and I am blessed that I will be welcoming them soon.

Hmmm... Thanks for the suggestions! I will have to tell my doctor and see what she says. I hope it?s not a cracked rib or anything... I think I would feel the pain when I'm sitting up too... its only when I'm lying down.

I feel your pain hunny, I had that pain. Mine acctually turned out to be a cracked rib due to the position of twin two kicking me, oh the joys of a multiple pregnancy eh. Have you tried paracetamol, not much else you can take really, best wishes, xxx

I had that, turned out it was my babies foot. As my pregnancy got longer it happened a lot more as they were bigger. Sometimes they used to move my boob by stretching out lol, it might be different but that's what i had x
