    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I am a first time mommy at 21 weeks and I usually rub my belly with lotion its very soothing, but now I have noticed that when I am rubbing my belly it is sensitive to the touch. It is really hard for me to determine what is normal and what is not, and I don't want to go all crazy and scare myself, but I wanted to see if anyone out there was having any of the same problems.

    I had the same issue with my first son. It's probably just because your skin has started to stretch more so it feels a little different. I wouldn't worry unless it really starts to hurt. You'll notice a lot of little pains and discomforts before it's over
