Belly Pain

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
