Back/rib pain at night - 33 weeks
Does anyone have any tips on helping to alleviate back/rib pain during the 3rd trimester of pregnancy?  I only have problems at night so assume it has to do with the way the extra weight is distributed when I am lying down.  Ive tried numerous sleeping positions (also tried different beds, couch etc.), pillow under back or under ribs or between legs - nothing has helped so far.  The problem right now is am only getting about 2 h sleep per night as a result of this.  Does anyone have any tips?

Unfortunately, I think we June Mommies are all going through the same thing right now.  I'm 34wks and I'm having the same problem, accompanied by countless pee-pee breaks, extreme pressure, and a list of other end of pregnancy problems.  My OB told me it's really nothing you can do about it, other than sleep sitting up!  And who in the hell wants to do that?
Hang in there we only have a few more weeks to go!
