Mole/brown mark in belly button?

(8 Posts)

I'm 26 weeks with my first baby and my belly button is just starting to come out a little. I have had my belly button pierced 16 years and I have just taken it out.
I have just noticed a fairly large mole/brown spot that gets slightly scabby inside my belly button that I have never seen before. I showed my GP who said it looked unusual and to keep an eye on it.
Has anyone else had or noticed anything like this?

I found a brown mole when pregnant with dc1. It wasn't until my belly button popped out that I noticed it. To begin with I thought it was dirt (it's not somewhere I tend to ensure is thoroughly clean lol) but on close inspection realised it's a mole. Mine isn't crusty or sore etc just a brown Mark on the skin.
Keep an eye on it and if it does become sore, weepy or dramatically change in shape/colour then please do get it checked out.
I'll add a pic of mine.

This is exactly what I have's just your linea negra (which hasn't yet/might not turn into a full line. Completely normal! With my first it ran the whole length of my bump, this time just a little discolouration inside belly button 👍

I didn't realise we could add a photo, yours looks very similar to mine! Have you seen your doctor about yours? He said to monitor it and check it doesn't grow but the fact he said it's unusual unnerved me a little bit!! The fact yours is very similar and your pregnant too makes me feel a bit better though! xx

I have that, thought it was a bit of old vein from the cord?

I mentioned it to mw during first pg and she just said it was my normal belly button and that I'd probably never noticed as it's not really somewhere we look (until it pops out lol) I'm on pg3 now and it's still there. It's caused no bother at all x
