3rd Trimester

Skin on stomach numb

My stomach has been itching like crazy lately, but when I scratch, I can't feel anything! If I rub my stomach, I can tell I'm touching it, but only from pressure. The actual skin seems to be completely numb. It's driving me crazy!!! I can't find any relief from the itching and I'm worried that if I keep scratching, I'll end up hurting myself because I can't really judge how hard I'm scratching. 

Anyone else had an experience like this? Is this normal? I would guess it's from how tightly the skin is stretched across my bump, but I'm not sure. Do I need to call the doctor? Or is this just one of the fun 3rd trimester symptoms? I can't find it in any of my books (first time mom, so pardon the anxiety). Thanks in advance!! (39 weeks this Tuesday!)
