How do I ease this rib pain

I am seeking help, information, assistance, a miracle…
For the last few week’s I have been suffering pain on my ribs to the extent that I feel they are about to pop.
The pain starts at the back and moves to the front meaning standing, sitting, lying, is so painful I could cry.
Nothing seems to ease it (tried paracetamol once but it didn’t do much) but it only really starts in the afternoon to evening.
If i get to sleep I can usually wake up the next morning pain free and start the cycle again later in the day.
It can feel like a stitch, or cramp, or like the ribs have snapped in two. Is this normal.
I don’t think the baby has reached this high yet so I don’t think it is baby that is causing this.
As sit typing this I am feeling the pain getting worse and dread to think how I will feel later.
