I fell on the fourth of July. I just got out of the pool and was carrying my 2 year old. My foot slipped and my ankle rolled. I did what I had to to make sure I didn't hit my stomach or injured my son. My son sustained no damage and the baby's seems to be doing perfect. However, I landed on my left side and damaged my ribs. I don't know for sure yet, but I am more than sure I cracked one or more. Any tips on healing and coping with the pain.  I see my dr on the 13th.

    I am no means a doctor but I'd say if the pain is mostly managable then maybe alternating ice / hear would help??  

    Although, personally, I'd go to the doctor sooner if possible but that's just me. Maybe call the doctor / nurse line and ask what you can do for the pain
