Absolutely go to the Emergency Room. This isn’t normal and you need help right away.

@wildcardinside:  I wouldn’t wait to speak to a doctor, just to make sure everything is ok. Better safe than sorry.

I have gastric reflux and severe hearburn, it feels similar to this. I would still definately call your doctor’s office (you will talk to the oncall doc) and I would guess they would instruct you to go to the ER.

Could be pleurisy (muscle strain in your chest wall; feels worse when you breathe in/deeply), but you need to be seen pronto anyways.  It could be nothing major, but only a doctor can make that call.

Does anything make the pain better?  Advil?  Hot shower?

First off, if you are still online, calm down. I know some of the previous comments could cause major stress. Yes, you should see a doctor asap but, there is a million other things this could be.  It’s very likely that this is not something life or pregnancy theatening.

Calm down, and go to a doctor. No need to put unneeded stress on yourself and your baby by worrying!

Sounds like severe acid reflux. I would go in straight away though and see a doctor. Keep you and baby safe.

Is it worse when you lay down? It sounds similar to what I have and I was just diagnosed with pancreatitis… definitely go to the ER.

@ieatunicorns:  YEPP. SAME.

I know you should see a doctor either way: but honestly for me it was extreme acid refluc and heartburn. Oddly enough—heartburn can feel like a heart attack with pregnant women because

1. its more severe heart burn than weve ever felt before pregnancy

2. its higher in the chest than normal heartburn

I seriously convinced myself I was having a heart attack a couple times and my doctor said nooo….
