Discomfort under ribs.
I have pressure under right side of rib cage just under breast level, feels like something is underneath pushing upwards. I am pregnant and was wondering if this could be related?? It's very uncomfortable but not painful at all. Only comfortable when standing.

How far along are you? It could be baby.  Im 39+3 and had babys bottom pushing up under my ribs from about 30 weeks, if you sit upright and feel for bump and ease it out from under your ribs, i always found doing it while in the bath helped x

I'm only 21 weeks so not really big enough for that yet I don't think. Also my baby is sitting quite low so not near my ribs.

It might not be baby but baby will be pushing your internal organs up the way to give itself some room so may be that if you only 21 weeks x

around week 25 I would say is when my little man started "playing with my ribs" Try laying down on your left side to get the baby to move away from them.

Ok...I'm 28 weeks almost 29...and what do you know....I start getting the same thing. Is ot worse when you lay down??? Even laying on my left side does nothing.  Did you ever figure out what it was? Know its not a gas bubble for me. It's not baby...cuz its always there. My princess is laying really super low as well. Don't think its my stomach cuz I can feel where that is.

Yes it can be worse when lying down. Tossing and turning all night. If I apply pressure on it it feels better. I m guessing its just all the Internal organs moving and adjusting themselves in new positions and that's where something has decided to go! Yeah it's been there for over a week now and is constant so think gas bubble would have gone by now and like you said baby is low and I have a long body as the midwife called it! Ah well joys of pregnancy!
