Sharp pain under bottom of left rib cage

Patient : 34 yrs old and 5mths pregnant. 2 weeks ago I got woken up by sharp pain right under the bottom of left rib cage. since then it has been sore, it feels better when I am laying down or stretching the area as to not "crush" it. While sitting i stretch the area as well because it is irritating me. When i got the stab pain it felt as if an organ slipped out of place. I assumed it was due to pregnancy but my obgyn said it is not pregnancy related. what could it be? :(
Symptoms:  Chronic soreness, tender
