Does anyone's skin on their belly hurt? Mine literally feels like one massive bruise, super tender to the touch and when he pushes his feet/knees whatever it is, it almost takes my breath away how much it aches. Even putting on lotion hurts, my shirts rub and it hurts etc. I don't remember this happening with DD but then again my stomach never got this huge
Mom to my wildchild Kalyna (Dec 2008)
I have one spot in particular where if the baby is pushing on it and I touch it, it feels exactly like that. Like a really bad bruise, enough to take my breath away. But it's just in the one spot, I'm not sure why.
I have a spot above my bellybutton, a little more toward my ribs that really hurts. Some days it is totally fine, and other days it is constant and hurts if I am couging, laughing, blowing my nose, etc etc etc. It also hurts to touch it. I have been worrying about this for a while b/c I didn't remember anything like this before, at least not until the very very end. I do feel better knowing I am not alone with this pain b/c sometimes when it hurts really bad, it makes me worry.
My skin on the underside (the part I can't see) hurts. I just try to lotion it up a lot...and I got a maternity support belt that actually helps with the "Oh no, everything is going to fall out of my private parts" feeling and it seems to help protect my skin there too...clothes don't rub on it and the belt stays in place pretty well.
