    Anyone else got this? Apart from the obvious area - my nipples! I've also noticed my arm pits have gotten really dark, and I think it looks really horrid, all the skin under my armpits all the way down the the side of my boobs has gone really dark and patchy/really dry too. It looks bloody awful like I haven't shaved for like forever! Which is just not true, it doesnt itch or anything and its not sore it just doesnt look very nice, hoping its just a pregnancy thing, as summer coming up don't want to be hiding my pits under long sleeved tops and jumpers forever!

    It could be my deodorant but never caused me these patches before? Strange! :blush:

    Aside from darker nipples/areola, I have a couple of darker patches on the underside of my boobs. :shrug: Another joy of pregnancy lol.
