    Default Burning Sensation on Skin - Stretching?

    I am 38 weeks pregnant and the last couple of weeks I have been experiencing a burning sensation on the skin of the stomach. Mostly upper to mid stomach. My ob says nothing to worry about and when I asked a pregnant coworker about it, she said she experienced this as found it to be stretching (as soon after she noticed a stretch mark). It is very sensitive to my clothing and feels better when cold / cream is applied. Any suggestions or thoughts about what it might be?

    Hi!! I posted a question similar to this yesterday. I've been getting a burning sensation on the bottom part of my right rib cage for the last couple of weeks.. The skin has gone numb now though..

    I thought it may have been the position of the baby pressing on something (maybe a foot or something), but basically, the midwife I spoke to this morning (as well as one of the lovely ladies here on Birth) told me it was quite common and that there are heaps of ligaments and nerves stretching inside, especially this late in pregnancy.. And that we can expect it all to go back to normal after the birth..

    I only have 2 stretch marks so far (touch wood) and have neither of them are anywhere near the burning part.. Both mine are on the bottom bit of my tummy...

    Good luck with your last couple of weeks!!!!
