Pregnant. Excruciating pain in abdomen. Is it hernia?

Hi I am 34weeks pregnant and about a week ago I started getting excruciating pain at the top of my abdomen on the left hand side, the pain is in an area about 2 cms long- it feels very much like a hernia , which I have had in the past. I have been reading online about inflamed rib cartlidges, is this something common in pregnancy? The pain is so bad I cannot lay downor touch the skin within that small area

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for choosing H.C.M.F.
You are a pregnant of 34 weeks, Last week you got pain at the top of abdomen and to the left side.
It might be hernia or gastric pain, or pain of fundus of uterus. I advise you to consult a surgeon for diagnosis and treatment.You may have to undergo gastroscopy, and M.R.I. for confarmmation.
Wishing for a quick recovery.
Best regards.
