I have yet to meet someone IRL that has had this same feeling. I experience numbness, and sometimes pain, right below my right breast. It is not caused by my bra because I have experienced it at night when I didn't have a bra on. I also don't think my uterus is that high yet because I am currently 23 weeks pregnant. Has anyone else experienced this or have any ideas on what could be causing it? My only guesses are that my organs are moving around or that I might have a pinched nerve. My next midwife appointment isn't until 5/1 so I'm trying to decide if this is something I need to inquire about before then. The numbness and pain is not constant, but it is pretty consistent. Thanks in advance for any feedback!

Your liver is under your right breast - not to alarm you but I think that's something you should get looked at before your next appointment, just in case...

I have some numbness to the outer aspect of my L thigh ... I chalked it up to some sort of sciatic nerve issue. I'm going to mention it on Tuesday when I go to the OB.

I think your pain/numbness warrants a call to your midwife ... better safe than sorry ....

Thanks for the responses. I'm suspecting my gallbladder for the pain so I made an appointment with my general practitioner at the suggestion of my midwifes office. I'm hoping it's nothing too serious . . . .
