I am 29 weeks pregnant and for the last month or so I have been having pains on my left side just below my ribs. It has started to hurt so bad in the last week that its unbearable. I even went to the ER last week and the Dr. said I needed to rule out indigestion. I have ruled it out now but the pain is getting worse. It burns at times. Sitting up hurts, eating is just uncomfortable. Up until last night laying down seemed to get rid of the pain, but I was awakened last night with severe pain, I had to get up out of bed for three hours till the pain went away. Also when I was in the ER the attending nurse said that the baby was low in my belly, her heartbeat and movements seemed to be ok. So she's not kicking me. I have an appontment next week but I'm going insane with this daily interuption and not knowing what is wrong. Do you have any suggestions or any clue as to what I could be experiencing?? Please help

You poor thing! I have no idea what it is but I had something ismilar last Thursday night - sharp cramp pain that kept me awake and no position was comofrtable - the pain then moved into my back for a week (weak spot for me). I have just put it down to bump growing pains - but admitedly the pain I had wasn't bad enough for me to go to the ER.
Keep hassling the dr's till you get a response that makes sense to you and gives you some relief.

Thanks for the response. Any input is helpful. I have been looking up everything I can think of just to get some peace of mind. No luck so far. I finally have a full day off that I don't have anything to do, so I have decieded to just stay in bed as much as its going to kill me. But the pain today is a dull pain, just trying to see if bed rest helps at all.
