numb bump and achy leg

For the past few days all the skin on my bump has been completely numb. Is this normal?????
I have been moisturising regularly, and nothing else seems to have changed... but it's kind of worrying me!

Also, the top of my right leg, and my hip are aching really, really badly. It was only when I lay on my right side, but now it's all the time...

Anyone else experienced this? have any advice for making it better?

How many weeks are you? It could be that the skin is getting very stretched over your bump.

sometimes when the bump is getting bigger it can press on a nerve, making legs numb. it should go away when the baby changes position (i think) ask the mw if you are worried

I am 40 weeks! My skin has been really dry lately too, but probably unrelated.
Am seeing midwife on monday, but will give her a call if it gets any worse I think.
Hopefully baby will make its arrival before monday anyway!

thanks nailpolish...
I saw a different midwife last week cos mine was ill, and she said "oooh, it's a good sized baby"

we have a history of big babies... so maybe that's the problem!
