Yes. A growing Uterus can cause everything to be squished and under strain. Body aches and pains is the norm as your uterus gets near the end of the pregnancy.

I have been getting a pain with burning sensation on my left side right under rib cage, but it happens every 12 hours.. What could it be?

Muscle Strain

Pain
There is not much in that area. You could have a muscle strain. Sometimes shingles can present as a burning sensation but usually has a band of redness associated with it. Also you could have a irritated skin nerve from pressure or trauma. Tough one to answer but that should be a good start

I am having pain with a burning sensation under the right side of my rib cage. What could this be?

Lots of possibility

Muscle
Here is a partial list: broken rib, shingles, irritation of lung membrane, pinched intercostal nerve, gallbladder disease, muscle sprain, hepatitis, lower lobe pneumonia. So with that partial list, there is no way that your question can be answered without a history & physical examination from your doctor.

pain and burning sensation in my stomach. pressure near my rib cage. feels like my stomach is on fire. any idea?

Stomach acid?

Abdomen
We all produce stomach acid; we need it to digest our food. But excess acid irritates the lining of the stomach - even though it's built to withstand a high-acid environment. If a sore develops, it can deepen into an ulcer. Another acid-related condition is reflux (heartburn). Hyperacidity syndromes are treatable with acid blockers, & many can be purchased over the counter. Do see your doctor!

Bothering Burning sensation pain on both sides around rib cage, sometimes and around were kidneys are at too but no infection. Can urinate better now.

See answer

Infection
As urologists, we are commonly asked to evaluate pts with back/flank pain to determine whether source is the kidneys or something else like neuromusculoskeletal in origin. Most kidney problems that are associated with pain (infection, stone, tumor, obstruction) are associated with an abnormal urinalysis (significant blood and or leukocytes). If still in doubt, ultrasound or CT imaging will answer.

I have a burning sensation under my right rib cage. Followed by heartburn. Sometimes it can become painful. I am 27yrs old.

Gallbladder ? Muscle

Heartburn
If the pain is related always to diet maybe gallbladder. If it is related to movement maybe muscular. See your doc. In the meanwhile, use heat to the area and massage the local rib and muscles. Very painful could be either.
