Within the past couple of days, I’ve started to feel a burning on the skin of my belly, just to the left of my belly button. It’s not internal, it’s definitely my skin that hurts.
I’m 37 weeks tomorrow.
Anyone else experience any kind of burning?

Yes! I’m almost 36 weeks, and I had the same sensation on my inner thigh. I had an appointment with my OB yesterday and asked about it. She said that since it was a burning feeling on my skin and not internal, it was possibly nerves firing, maybe due to the skin stretching, and was unconcerned. Not much help, but I completely feel your pain!

I saw my OB yesterday and asked him, and he also said it was likely skin/nerves stretching. I would way rather have itching! This is so painful!
Ah, but our days are numbered, so that’s good news!

I had it at the top of my bump after about 28 weeks. It was awful it felt like I had a rug burn constantly. So glad it went away right after he was born.
