  • it's normal for the pigment in your skin to change when you're pregnant.... you might also get a line down your belly, your areola may darken and some women also have the skin around their eyes darken. it will go away after the baby is born

  • Oh yes!!! I got it really bad with every pregnancy (I've been pregnant 4 times). It was really noticeable under my arm pits and under my boobs. It's totally normal though. It has to do with the hormones. It'll all go away after you have the baby though

  • Yes its your skin pigment changing colors. It has to do with hormones. It should go away after having the baby. Mine did.
