    Hello,

    Has anyone noticed a changed in there moles or freckles?

    I've noticed i have a dark freckle beside my nipple its gotten darker over the past 6 months and a mole on hip seems a wee bit raised and seems to have gotten lighter and a bit dry?

    I'm now convinced i have skin cancer! :cry:

    OMG i have literally just been almost crying to my OH coz loads of my moles are really raised! I have one on my face that i was trying to pick off coz i thought it was a spot and when i looked in the mirror i was horrified that it was a mole. They seem a different colour too. God i'm so releived that someone else has this as its likely to be a pregnancy thing xx

    How wierd is that?! the one on my hip i thought was a wee bit of dry skin and i pulled the dry skin off it then looked down to see it had been over the mole and was a little more raised than normal.. freaked me out!! I get so paranoid about these things! Might say to the midwife next time i'm up
    So pleased im not the only one!!!!

    I was plucking my eyebrows this morning and my freckles have really come out over my face - I haven't even been in the sun, infact I've hardly been out the house for weeks! (Bad SPD)

    Don't panic, it's just a pregnant horrmonal thing and should return to normal after birth.

    I've always had a splodgy lookign brown mark on my cheek which has gotton bigger but I'm not worried about it.
    You can also get brown marks on your face from no where called a pregnancy mask - all just normal :hugs:

    I have a mole on my belly, and it's stretched with my belly, and it kinda sticks out now.

    I have found more freckles on my legs. They weren't there before I got pregnant.

    My boobs are covered...literally! I must have around 100, all shapes and sizes. Got a big raised one on my tummy and my face is spotty as well. Doctor said it is because I am having a gir, hormones etc.

    I have had this too.

    I have many moles and freckles and 3 weeks ago saw that the 'mole' on my shoulder had changed, I went to the Dr who said it wasnt actually a mole, but some other skin thing that looks like a mole but isnt (sorry but I cant remember the name she gave it). So she sent me off.

    2 weeks later it was raised, had a red ring around it, was darker and very dry, so off I went to the Dr again and in the end she burned it off.

    I also have many skin tags and know that these (as well as the moles changing) is due to our hormones, but I would suggest that if you are worried (as I was) just go to the Dr, thats what they are there for and it will put your mind at rest ;)

    :hugs:

    Im glad im not alone. Ticks are rife in germany and can carry limes disease (sp) A few weeks ago I actualy ripped off a mole because It had changed shape so much I thought it was a tick!

    Yeah the one on my tummy is starting to peel off. Strange as it doesn't bleed or hurt?! I hope my boobs turn back to normal though!

    (Checking out third tri before I come over in a week) - I have found this, and am finding I'm developing new moles on my face! It's so annoying.

    I have everything that has been described here!
    The skin tags and the moles go away after the birth?
