Does Anyones Skin Hurt

I know that this might sound really weird but on my left rib cage the skin hurts really bad. When I was about 20 weeks my rib cage started hurting and now the skin hurts really bad too. I am currently 34 weeks and I cant stand the thought of dealing with this until I deliver. Has anyone else experienced this and if you have what helped the pain?

Beth, I have the same thing but mine has eased up over the last day or so. It feels like a really bad sunburn. I wish that I could be of more help - I am anxious to see what others reply. I am close to 30 weeks.

Hi - a few others mentioned it last week on a thread called "sensitive skin" - I'll see if I can find it and bump it up. I have it... strange, mine is more on the left side, too. It seems to start right under the bra line. Some days it hurts more than others, but sometimes it is excrutiating! A few days ago I tried Calamine lotion... I think it might have helped, but it is kind of messy. Mine seems to feel worse when I lay down and my large stomach seems to 'pull' on it. I'm not sure what it is, but a sunburn is a pretty good description... Sometimes it feels like pins and needles even.

Yes I would describe it as a sunburn feeling. I asked my doctor about it and he told me that it is from the skin stretching and that it will only get worse. I will try calamine lotion. I got some Lanacane but it doesn't seem to help with it. Mine is worse when I sit. Hopefully others will have some ideas or that this will just go away.

Beth, I had that too, but it was the baby's feet stuck up in my rib cage all the time, I tried pushing her out but that did not work so I would rub my stomach and my ribs and it like soothed her and she would slip out of that position, but she si back up in there every day!! :0)
