I'm dying today! I have very minor scoliosis in my upper spine so I'm not sure if that's why (my spine curves a bit out to the left in the upper thoracic region which makes my left shoulder higher than the right) but my left lower ribs near my breastbone are so sore!! It almost feels like they are collapsing or doubling over each other today.
So, it's rare, but I have heard of baby kicking hard enough to crack a rib. Have you talked to your doc?

I don't think baby is high enough to hit my ribs yet. I think it's just pain from stretching/expanding ribs and also from heavy large boobs. I need a more comfy bra too....
Ack.... I was laying down in bed this morning and feeling where the top of my uterus is and it's right below my breastbone! Much higher than it was 1-2 weeks ago. I guess baby did have a growth spurt!
