Left Rib Pain In A 9 Month Gestation?
Night. I am a 21 year old. I am 9 months pregnant. It’s been 2 days since my chest hurts around my rib cage. Under the left breast. Sometimes move down the left armpit. Is it because of aches or internal organ disorders huh?

Pain in the chest or left armpit can occur in normal conditions during pregnancy (aches / muscle aches), especially in the late trimester, or due to other diseases. Although to ensure this requires a more complete examination, there are several features that can help you to distinguish the two things, including:
Time of onset of symptoms. If the pain arises in certain positions (for example lying to the left, raising your left hand, taking a deep breath, etc.), the condition is more directed towards muscle problems. However, if the pain appears is not affected by position or movement, but can occur at any time, even if not moving or in any position, or if you are tired, when you are late eating, or after eating, then there is a possibility that it can be caused by organs other.
When symptoms improve. If the pain feels better after you rest your muscles (not moved), there is a possibility of contact with the muscles. If it improves after you eat, or take gastric medication, for example, it's likely to be more related to the gastrointestinal tract.
Accompanying symptoms. If the pain you feel is accompanied by palpitations, cold sweat, back pain or radiating to the left arm, chin, or accompanied by nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, etc., it is possible to involve other organs besides muscles.
If you are unsure about this condition, consult with the obstetrician who treats you, so that proper examination and treatment can be done. Things you can do at home are:
Change the position of sitting, sleeping, or other positions that tend to be done in an old position. Monotonous position can trigger muscle pain.
Regulate good breathing patterns, by occasionally taking a deep breath and then exhaling slowly. Often the pain comes from breathing muscles that are depressed by the fetus in the stomach.
Keeping nutritional and fluid needs met. These complaints can be caused by lack of certain nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, etc.
Routinely control the health of obstetricians according to the schedule that has been given.
In addition, plan your pregnancy well, such as where to give birth, who will be helped by, by what method (normal, sectio cesarea), and prepare the equipment needed before the day of labor arrives. You can also read about things that need to be prepared on this link.
Thus, hopefully it can help. Hopefully the mother and baby are always in good health.
