Hurts to take deep breaths??

I was wondering if anyone was having or had something like this. Here is the best way I know how to describe it. This started this morning, every time I take a deep breath it feels like someone is stepping on my chest. Anyone else? I know being in the 3rd trimester is going to squeeze things alittle, but this is almost painful.

I have this too every once in a while. I think it is b/c everything is still shifting and I am carrying high. If it becomes too painful then I'd call your MW or OB... but usually just another joy of being pregnant

I get this too sometimes. It's a little scary and uncomfortable. If it gets worse check with your doc but it's most likely just normal.

Same thing happened to me and I kept telling the doctors how much it hurt and that I thought something was wrong.. finally after a day of complaining and bothering them they told me to go to the ER. I went to the ER they monitored the babies heartbeat and told me to go home.

I went in and got an ultrasound the next day and DD's foot was jammed up in my ribs. The pain went away after about a week though

i have this problem, but mostly when i can tell she is up under my rib area. i can feel the little knot of her head right below my ribcage and i kind of stroke her down and ask her to move and she does... it is really scary though. sometimes paranoia grips me and i think it is a really bad problem with my own breathing, but then it goes away.. i think its probably normal. everything is "out of whack" in there right now...haha. it it lingers/gets worse then i would call you dr or mw
