That's happened to me. Not terribly bad, but there's been some peeling. I think it might have something to do with being dry or something. It's been awhile since I've had that, I don't remember it traveling at all, but I'm sure your MW will have some easy explanation for it!

It is happening to me too!! I'm getting the "dry skin" on my stomach and my boobs. I don't know why though. I have just been putting lotion on every day and it is starting to go away. I have a feeling that maybe because the skin is stretching it is drying easier. I dunno if I'm right, but that's my guess!!
Me 18, DH 23, expecting first due 3/24/11! It's a boy!

I've found that bras with lace cups or with a cup that has a seam down the middle causes chaffing for me when I'm pregnant.
