Numb/Itchy/Tingling Belly

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
This is my third pregnancy and I definitely don't remember this crazy, itchy, burning, skin feeling!! It's driving me nuts! No matter how much Belly Butter I slosh on myself, it doesn't go away. I'm 35 weeks now - trying to enjoy the time I have left, but to be honest, I'm getting tired of being pregnant.

Anyone else have this feeling on their bellies?? (oh, and while I'm here.... I've noticed a big decline in movements. I know she's pretty squished in there, but does anyone else notice less kicks and more sort-of-stretches?)

Thank you,
Tara

Right there with ya. The munchkin is doing more of that sort of stick out a limb/joint and drag across my belly. Feels too weird, and a little creepy if I happen to have my hand on my tummy at the time. The kicks are less frequent some days, more frequent others. We go through cycles, I think.

My skin doesn't burn, but it definitely itches if we're having a big growth day (where my pants feel tighter at the end of the day). I just put a little lotion on and scratch if I have to, stretch marks be damned!

Just remember, only 5 more weeks - you can do it!

i am at 28 weeks, and my belly started to ich really bad. I went in and asked what it was because it did form a rash. And they told me most women at around 36 weeks get "pregnancy rash" :

So that is what they are "calling" mine for now, but what you explained is just what they explained. And after birth it goes away!

That's exactly how this little one has been moving. Glad to hear I'm not alone!!

Thanks,

Was going to ask the same question... I'm 33 weeks now and not a lot of kicking going on. I was getting sort of worried. I've always had days where there's a lot of movement and then other days barely any. Can feel stretching movement and shifting, rolling back and forth, but no distinct kicks or pokes. I think she's facing my back too so no limbs up front maybe. Can definitly tell someone is bouncing on my bladder at times tho. Hiccups are happening a lot, too.

My belly gets so itchy, and my hips and breasts. This has actually been bugging me for a month or 2. I moisturize constantly, but it always returns. Its even worse when there's clothing touching it. I just can't wait to get home some days so I can take off my clothes and relax.

itching and more itching

I am 37 wks and constantly itchy and I think I have that pregnancy rash too! All my stretch marks on the bottom of my belly are now raised and itch SOO much. I put healing cream on constantly, but still itches. I hope they don't scar too much, but I guess there is nothing to be done about it. They look pretty scary though....very red! They are in a big cluster and slowly creeping up. UGH! Anybody else have suggestions or cure-alls?

My family laughes at me, because I use Coco butter in the morning, and rub Baby oil with Vit. E all over the rest of my body. When I get home My Ds or my DP help put Lotion with Vit. E all over, and before I go to bed I put Sunflower (maybe it is Almond) oil on my belly. All rich with Vit E. So far I only have six strech marks and they are small . With my ds I didn't do anything and have, what I call fire marks, on the inderside of my bellt from the skin streching. Always said if I get a tatoo, it will be flames to cover those up. (Never going to happen but would look so cool)

But my belly and body are so soft. I wish I would have done this the entire time, but I just started doing the rutine 4 weeks ago when I noticed I had a dry/ichy belly.
