    I just noticed that the area around my belly button looks bruised - I have a lot of stretchmarks and stuff and look at my belly pretty regularly and have never noticed it before... normal? .... :shrug:

    Mine kind of looks a bit like that too, but I think it's because I'm so pale and there is all the extra blue veins in that area- is this possible?

    I don't have stretchmarks yet (starting in a few places!) but I definitely have a bit of a bruised looking area where there are many blue veins together. My MW says it's normal- perhaps this is what you have?

    I'm quite pale as well so that could definitely be it - thank you!

    my OB is out of the office this week and told me to go in to the hospital if I had any concerns and really didn't want to go in for something that could be completely normal, so thank you for the responses :hugs:
