    Has anyone ever had a burning sensation on the skin near the sternum

    I was just wondering if anyone has felt itching and burning along the skin near the sternum bone (between the breasts). Wearing a bra seems to agitate it even more. I got badly burned in this area two years ago, but didn't start to feel the pain until recently. I'm wondering if this is pregnancy related Anyone?

    Could it be that you're experiencing heartburn? That is a common issue in pregnancy, and its a burning sensation in that particular area... Just a thought!

    I have been feeling this for a few days. Im almost 31 weeks. I dont know if my little girl is pushing on it or what but it hurts. I dont think its heartburn. I know the difference. If I still have it next week when I go for my check up then I will ask unless I cant take it anymore.

    I know that I itch on the skin there and there is no reasonable explanation. I do not have a confirmed pregnancy but sure feel like I am. I also notice other parts of me itch at random times.

    Thanks for your responses ladies. I am 25 weeks pregnant and I don't think it is heart burn, but I'll check with my doctor when I see her next week. Hopefully it will go away soon.
