I've just noticed that I've got areas of skin on my bump that are completely numb and they don't seem to correspond to any particularly stretched areas either. I'm 36+1, have been having loads of BH recently (but not tonight-yet)and am a little perturbed!! is this normal?

Hiya - Jan06 girl! I am 35+2 with dd2. With dd1, I had a numb patch on the top left of my bump where it met my ribs - IYSWIM. Have it with this pregnancy but not quite so bad - mw isn't particularly concerned - so perhaps is normal?

Ooh thanks for that - I'm so relieved. I wondered what the hell was going on!! it's a really wierd feeling isn't it. I thought it might have been my nerves permanently splitting apart or something. El bumpo is now too big for even my "next size up" and ultra massive mat clothes!! Thank you (am such a paranoid wuss at the moment)

Paranoid goes with the territory doesn't it? Last time I could only fit into one maternity skirt at this point - luckily, I haven't put quite so much weight on this time.

Hope to be joining you in the Jan post-natal thread - I don't want to be overdue like I was with dd1.
