loss of sensation on tummy after pregnancy?

It seems that I lost some sensation on the skin below my belly button. Is this from being pregnant and the stretching and pulling of the skin? If I touch directly below my navel, I can only feel the pressure from my fingertips. Did this happen to anyone else? Oh and I had my baby July 20th.

  • Yeah that happened to mine too. The feeling came back little by little, I'm not sure how long it took till it came all the way back though

  • That happened to me too after my last baby. It would feel numb. I had my son on May 27 and it took a month or more for it to feel normal.
