Has anyone brusied any ribs while pregnant?

I am 34 weeks pregnant, and I think I might have bruised my ribs and I am in pain, and when the baby moves it hurts way worse! Is there anything I can do for the pain or would it be pointless to call the doctor?

It's never pointless to call the doc, in my opinion. If you are concerned, or need something for the pain, ask. The worst that can happen is they tell you no, there's nothing you can do. I know the pain you're talking about- it kills- I don't *think* you can do anything for it, as you can't do much for bruised/broken ribs in the first place, but you never know unless you ask.

Good news: You're 34 weeks- baby should drop any day now, and you'll have some relief from the rib kicks (though you may have other difficulties) but it's almost over! :D
