Belly line & dark spots?

  • I know we all get that belly line when we are preggo. I started getting a few dark spots around my belly button maybe 2 weeks ago. I am 26wks & 1 day. Does anyone know if getting those dark spots is normal? They're not super dark, they look like faint birth marks near my belly button area. What are these and should I be worried!?

  • I don't know if its the same thing that I have. But I have spots that look like birth marks, its called tinea versicolor. But mine are under my boobs, where my bra is, on my sides. But I have had it before I was pregnant, the pregnancy just made it worse. But you can ask your doctor to find out what it really is.

  • Do you know if the dark spots go away? I'm definitely going to ask my doctor at my next appt on July 1st.

    @RizzyChicky @Cait_SeptemberMommy Its just a type of hyperpigmentation.. It fades after giving birth sometimes completly.. I got a spot between my thumb and index finger also my armpits turned soo dark is gross! I asked my doctor and she said not to worry!

    I thought I was the only person who's armpits got dark during pregnancy. I hate it!

    @Mommyof4girls I hope mine goes away too.. since this is my first baby I kinda freak out with every change I go thru!

  • It's hard not too... I called my cousin everyday! Totally freaking out about every little change w my first. I felt soo bad. But she is amazing. Thank God for her or I would have lost my mind.
