So, can pregnancy make me have more freckles?

I already have freckles, but the other day I looked in the mirror and it is as if 50 more freckles appeared on my face. INSANE in the membrane. I know that during summer I get a little bit more, but its yucky weather still here in my town and yeah. Just curious.

  • Bottom line: Pregnancy can wreak havoc on your mind and body in every way possible. Basically, if I have any weird symptoms while I'm pregnant I just chalk it up to pregnancy.

  • Yes...and you may get the mask of pregnancy (Melasma), too. Hormones do crazy things to us!!!

  • Yes. Well I got them. For both my 1st and my 2nd pregnancy. I tried every darn fading cream I knew of, but nothing worked for me.
