When a pregnancy progresses, the ribcage expands due to the growing baby.
This expansion in ribcage dimensions is required to help give more space to the lungs to help with breathing. With this rib expansion means the muscles in between the ribs and many of the accessory muscles which help out with breathing have to do more work, this can cause discomfort and pain.
