SKIN CHANGES DURING PREGNANCY!
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
As many of us know, as we advance
in our pregnancy many strange things happen to our bodies. These
pregnancy-induced changes have definitely influenced more than their fair share
of old wives tales, such as the darkening of the areola of a woman’s breast.
There is a common old wives tale that says that if a pregnant woman experiences
a darkening of the nipple area that she is pregnant with a boy.
Perhaps this old wives tale exists because the first woman who reported this
change to her doctor birthed a boy, but it holds absolutely no truth! Changes in
the color of skin in any are of the body during pregnancy are caused by the
increase in progesterone. In addition to the darkening of the nipples or areola,
there may also be a darkening of skin on the face, moles, and freckles. Some
women also experience a line from their navel to their pubic bone, called the
linea nigra, which is also from increased progesterone levels.
