Chest pain at 37 weeks

Patient

Q: Im 37 weeks pregnant as of tomorrow. Ive had rib pain for several weeks on the left side. Tonight i propped up on some pillows to take some pressure off my left side and when i sat back up, i had severe stabbing pain in my left lung or muscle?? It hurts to inhale deeply or change positions.... its late so my obgyn wont be in his office and im unsure whether i should go to the ER, as my ER copay is ridiculously high..... but it does hurt awfully bad......

Symptoms:  Stabbing pain left chest, rib area
