darkened skin around belly button?


I know most ladies mention seeing the linea nigra on their belly, but does anyone else notice the skin around their belly button darkening too? My belly is pale otherwise, just this slightly darkened ring around my belly button...

I don't have anything around my bellybutton, but increased pigmentation in general is normal. I've been getting lots of dark spots like freckles around my nipples, but nowhere else.

I've noticed that my belly button area is darker and a different color than the rest of my belly. I was actually just pointing that out to DH!

Ive had a few ops and my belly button has sort of been destroyed through them, looks like I have about 3 possible belly button bumps now sticking out lol - but around them there are darker marks. I thought it was my stitches/scars but after reading this I guess its just another pg symptom lol

Sometimes I feel like my belly button is about to pop out as my belly gets bigger and bigger haha but it hasn't and I'm hoping it'll stay that way!

scq09, does this mean that the darkened area disappeard or lightened for you after giving birth?
