17 weeks pregnant, sharp abdominal pain under rib cage, large pedunculated fibroid in abdomen. Treatment?

I am 27 years old, 154lbs, 5.5 ft and 17wks pregnant. No history of health problems. For the past few days I had a sharp tearing pain in the upper middle abdomen area just lower center of the rib cage. It intensifies at times and it is especially painful and tearing when ever i sit up right or stand and when i try to move around in bed. I should mention that also have a large pedunculated fibroid 11X7.4 cm hanging around on the left size of my lower abdomen.

Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is unlikely to be related to your pregnancy or the fibroid.
It is not easy to point out a cause - all pains in abdomen start in the middle and later on shift. The epigastric pain can be from gall bladder or stomach - but they relate to food. Worse on to sitting, standing or moving suggests muscle. In older people heart comes under consideration - you are less than 30.
The best option is to see your GP or Internist. An ultrasound may be necessary

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
