What causes twitching sensation under the rib cage?

Hi im 26 year old female. 125 pounds 5 6, 11 weeks pregnant. Have SVT and tremors. I have this twitching right under the left side of my eib cage and a tad bit below it. It was twitching very little for a couple days and for the past three it has been non stop. Idk if the pregnancy plays part in it. But there is no pain while its t Witching but pain very rare when i stand up or walk. Doesnt feel like a muscle pulled and this is my 4th pregnancy. Only one live child. Pregnancy has gone great so far. So i dont think it has to do with that either. Got any ideas? Oh and i have been really constipated and have been eating fiber inriched food to help with that.

Yes, it might be the pregnancy in my opinion however if there is something not normal in the skin than better to see your doctor. However, I do not think this is a serious problem.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
