View Full Version : Sun Burnt Coloured Skin
I am 27 weeks PG and I have notice over the past week that every now and then I get a red tinge to my skin like i have been sun burnt. :confused:
Have any other mums/mums to be had this as well.
Just thought I'd drop a note to say that I have been getting this too- for quite a few weeks now.. (am 33 weeks pregnant at the mo) ..
you didn't specify in your post where your skin was changing colour... or exactly how dramatically... so it could be two different things..... but I got a bit of a fright when mine started to change...
the area around my belly button ( surface area about the size of a bread plate) occasionally gets a bright 'flushed' look to it (the colour my face goes when I exercise???!!!) - it freaked me to start with .. but my OB wasn't concerned.. I have noticed that if I push myself too hard (too much physical effort) - that it increased...
if it isn't that... it may just be hormonal??? I noticed that I got more flushed during pregnancy ... with NO effort..
are you spending time in the sun??? pregnant women are much more sensitive to sun exposure..
best to mention it at your next appointment anyway.. just to be sure..
I hope this helps??? !!
Thanks for your reply.
I have been noticing the change in my skin colour on my arms, hands, legs and feet. And I'm not ovedoing it as i work a desk job days a week and rest on weekends. I will be checking with me OB this week if this is normal.
My skin did that alot when i was pregnant too. Maybe it has something to do with your body working over time to create bub. I'm really fair so it looked real obvious too.
Check with your OB but i'm sure its nothing to worry about.
