Hi I noticed a few days ago my rib along the base of my breast is very sore like a bruised feeling..It is right where the underwire of my bra sits..anyone know what it could be? my bra'saren't tight..the only thing I can think of is lifting my toddler daily..I have no lumps or bumps..

Dear ashpie3:  The soreness on your rib could be many things, including irritation from your bra (either alone or in combination with holding your toddler against it), you may have bumped yourself.  In the absence of any other symptoms, give it a week or two and see if the pain resolves.  You may take a break from your underwire bra to see if this is a contributor.
