Uterus OVER my ribs???? *~Emma's mommy~* 1 child; Texas 186 posts
24th Jun '08

Ok, so i know that normally as the baby grows, your uters moves under your ribcage. Well, mine is going OVER my ribcage...When I get a bh contraction, I can feel (and see) my uterus OVER my ribs. When I push my hand beside it, I can feel how my ribs go underneath it. When she kicks, I can see it where my ribs should be. Is this normal???? I'm worried that as she grows she'll push my ribs inward and do some sort of damage to my organs or something. I'm almost 33 weeks, so I've only got7 more to go. Should I be concerned? I'm afraid that if I call my dr's office and ask them, they'll think I'm crazy. I asked my mom (who's a nurse) and she laughed and asked how i could possibly know that my uterus was OVER my ribs...HOW COULD I NOT?? It's there. My ribs are under it. Simple, right? Help?

I say go to doc....that way they can see it and see you aren't crazy....or maybe they can make you feel better and tell you thats not what it is or say its normal or whatever....the doc just always makes me feel better about any question i have! :)

I tried to find an article on what you are talking about but i couldn't find one. I would call your doctor...Old say not stupid question That goes double when you are pregnant. It is better to check and know everything is okay. That way you can relax and know you and the baby are safe.

My daughter moves in and out of my ribs... sometimes her feet kick inside my ribs.. sometimes she kicks outside.. the other day i could see her two little feet kicking outside my ribs.. it feels WAAAAY WEIRD... But looks crazy cool! lol. Love it... I Think it depends on how baby is positioned, cause ive had her high up when i get BH and OOOO.. thats not pleasant.. im always pushing my belly down to get her lower cause it hurts.
Sorry im sooo late!!! lol. I hope all is ok..
