Burning Sensation during pregnancy
Omg, I get the same thing too! This is my second pregnancy (11 yrs apart) and have felt that burning sensation ON my skin, top of my stomach. It sounds plausible that it could be my skin stretching, but every minute of the day?! Weird thing is, it's just a sensation, no noticeable irritation like redness, rash, discoloration or stretch marks...just my normal skin that burns like hell. My doctors are not familiar with what I'm feeling so they have no GOOD suggestions for relief. Somebody help us!!! #notheartburn
