I feel something tingling right on top of my rib cage a sensation on the right hand side, I don't get sick of feel uncomfortable but not sure what it might be. I have noticed this few weeks now it comes and goes and just appears randomly. 33+3 week

Anyone had same experience?

I had this with all three, it felt like pins and needles, really strange and I was worried with first one...midwife/Dr never could explain what it was and unfortunately it lasted the whole pregnancy. It wasn't painful, just really uncomfortable. I was always rubbing it trying to get the sensation to go away...would be interested to know what it is though!

Could be the placenta, after looking at some pictures on Google but if it was the doctors would know this, confused

I get this, but it's more like an ache, or the skin is itchy. When you say "right", do you mean looking down at bump?

I had this with DS! It drove me crazy! No idea what it was though.

I get this. I just put it down to skin stretching/organs moving so always just put it down to a nerve thing?
