I was on bed rest, too. But never dropped until I was in labor. I am sure it isnt because of bed rest though.



I always found doing a stretch with your arm over your head and leaning your body always helps for a little while.

the only thing that helped was sitting in the bath water
it took the pressure off my ribs,but the second i got out the pain came back
i also had the same pain in my hips



theres not alot you can do about it :(

My ribs are the same way, started on my left, and got worse once baby dropped. She dropped at 26-27 weeks, just complained to the doc. ICE PACKS just discovered that yesterday worked wonders. Fell asleep on my left side for the first time in weeks :) and btw, when she/he starts kicking up where when they drop. It doesn't get better. Sadly.

I posted a thread like this the other day. I had women giving me all kinds of advice. And a few told me that if it gets ridiculous like that. To call the OB and insist she do something. I've heard of a few women getting painkillers but other than that I can't see them doing much. Like I said Ice packs will help with soreness and make baby move down. They don't like the cold.
