It could be pressure from the uterus, but there are more serious causes like pneumonia which can also cause this, so see your doctor about it.

Hi LC,

Its probably your expanding uterus thats pushing up against the rib cage. Its normal at this stage of pregnancy. Im 32 weeks and i also feel some rib discomfort so dont worry, im sure everythings okay.
