I noticed a few days ago that sometimes the skin on my belly is numb!!! Does anyone else have this?! I touch it, but I can't feel it. I mean, my fingers feel it, but my belly doesn't feel my fingers. Its the area around my belly button. What's going on? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch">

AARRRGGGGGGGGGG!!!! I soooo know how you feel. I have had this now for over a month. It's a fist sized patch that is completely numb but itches like hell and hurts. Too bad I can't do anything about it cause it's NUMB!!! It has been driving me nuts. I do know what it is though. Apparently the baby is pressing on a nerve in the spine and that's why it's numb. There's nothing you can do about it that I have found anyway. It will go away after the baby is born but in the meantime, what a pain in the @$$!!!!

I had the numb patch when pg w/dd. Soooooo annoying. I used a hot water bottle a lot to help me deal with it.<br><br>
I'm just now getting a little bit of it this time but w/dd it was the entire 3rd trimester.
