  • I have an answer for you! I have the same problem and I have had it with both of my pregnancies! It is pigmentation (melanon) that occurs in some pregnant women. I don't think it is very common, but my armpits and vaginal area are so dark I look like I am a different race than I was before kids lol. This also happens to some women who have linea Negra (dark like down the tummy). It generally took me about a year to get rid of most of the pigmentation with the first pregnancy. Also some women with hyperpigmentation will get the mask of pregnancy which is weird spots or patches on their face! :)

  • Like everyone said it is normal. Mine got darker as did the inside of my thighs with my first. I asked my doctor because I was afraid I had some weird rash. Pregnancy does some unattractive thigns to us that is for sure! Oh and grats on being able to do that at all. reaching around a swollen belly to get around down there must be a hll of a trial.
