@soon2bmrs.D: not sure what it is, but if it’s painful and your hubby can hear it, I’d say call the maternity ward/ doctor’s after-office hours and ask a doctor.  If it’s painful, the general rule of thumb is get it checked out.

It could be you need an inhaler of some sort to lubricate your lungs.  (If that makes any sense). 

regardless, call your dr or maternity ward and ask someone or go to the maternity ward (you might end up there anyway). 

good luck and hope you feel better!!!

Oh and agreed with Ryna

call the maternity ward if you are worried. They are there for these types of things 🙂 They have seen and heard it all.

Sounds like you might be in need of a chiropractor!

Ribs can easily go out of alignment while you’re pregnant. The hormone relaxin causes your joints to become looser and your ribs are especially vulnerable as your body makes room for your beautiful baby.

If it isn’t your ribs, it could very easily be a vertebrae in your spine causing the issue and it is definitely worth getting checked!

Chiropractic care is very gentle and is awesome for pregnant women! The main goal is to get you to your optimum health so that your baby can grow strong and healthy. Who wouldn’t want to give their baby the best possible environment to grow in? 🙂

 

Hope everything gets better for you soon! Keep us posted if you find anything out!

@julies1949: actually, if you’re pregnant, you’re almost ALWAYS sent to the maternity ward BECAUSE you’re pregnant. It’s kinda a given due to the fact they have to factor in the unborn child when given meds and despite the fact they’re ob-gyn’s, they’re also doctors and can diagnose anything else (or at least, they SHOULD).

Also, it sounds like this could very well be pregnancy related.  I ended up having mild asthema with my daughter and had to use an inhaler. 

I don’t know about the other hospitals, but at mine, if you walk in the ER and are pregnant, you’re just sent up to the maternity ward.  THERE, you’re asked what’s wrong. 

It’s probably different if you’re bleeding and or have a broken bone, but it doesn’t even sound like the OP has a fever.

@Zinzerena: Actually, I have worked in ER for 20 years and we rule out other things before we send a woman to the maternity ward just because she is pregnant. They still have all their other body parts too.

We wouldn’t want to send a woman upstairs with chest pain, for example, who could have pleurisy, Bornholm’s disease or a cardiac problem, none of which would even be recogonized by the maternity staff, much less treated appropriately.

@julies1949: weird that you should say that.  I work at a teaching hospital (maternity ward), so maybe things are different than in real life….but our doctors are actually doctors so they also rule out important life threatening things while also making sure the baby is okay.  We’ve worked up and diagnosed all sorts of things and consult the appropriate specialists when needed.  I find it a little offensive that you would think the ob/gyn cannot diagnose and treat a medical patient.  ridiculous.  In fact, most of the time I think our ER are the ones to mistreat and misdiagnose and simply consult everyone because they don’t know much.  Any woman who comes in through the ER who is greater than 20 wks pregnant comes straight to us.

I was told by my OB that if anything happens out of the ordinary…anything….That I should call my maternity ward at the hospital. They will decided wether or not its worth it to come in.

I had a migraine the other day that made my left eye go completely blurry. I couldnt see out of it practically. I called the hospital and they made me come in . They wanted to monitor the baby at the same time as figuring out what the issue was.

It sounds like a cracked rib to me. They are quite common during pregnancy. I’d see you doctor about it.
