    hi there

    i'm experiencing something discomfort on the top of my belly, around the top of my ribcage. I think I pulled a muscle trying to get up when I was lying down...it's been a real pain in the arse. Could yours be something similar?

    lol.. I doubt I will be that lucky. There is no pain there what so ever, it is just like I have had a local anesthetic (sp) in the belly.. might have to ask the dr tomorrow

    I don't have numbness, but my skin feels odd just below my boobs at the bottom of my ribcage. I think it's just as the skin is stretched so much from the size of my belly and the extra weight of boobs pulling on it.

    Candice - I know exactly what your referring to, it`s awful isn`t it, got me worried when I first noticed it but all was ok, and it lasted right up until Matthew was born, so that was a good 8 weeks or so.

    well the doc has told me that it is due to the skin being stretched so thin that it cuts of the nerve endings :boggle:
