Hello dear,I understand your concern.In my opinion the pain under shoulder blade can be due to muscular origin or gastritis.Avoid spicy and oily diet.Take antacids.Also some type of non specific pains are common during pregnancy which subside spontaneously.Take panadol for pain.Apply hot fomentation and local irritants.Nothing to worry.It will subside.
