  • yes your skin creates more melonin which darkens moles and freckles and gives you the linea nigrea (sp) it also gives you the "raccoon eyes" in that first trimester

  • It is true your moles will be also larger, the one on my leg became bigger and then later went down after having my daughter.

  • Yes, it is very normal. This is my 3rd pregnancy and my moles and freckles just get worse with each pregnancy. I stay out of the sun completely so they don't get worse. You can also get brown blotchy spots on your face and body. It's called the Mask of Pregnancy.
