I had a few little ones appear (and an existing one got much bigger). Yes, I'm happy to report that all the new ones disappeared after pregnancy. Couldn't tell you how long it took though.

Yes my neck was covered in them, they pretty much all receded or fell off after the birth, over a period of about 6 months. I feel you, I hated them, but I totally forgot I'd ever had them till reading your post.

I've had some appear on my areolas. Nowhere else. One disappeared but I have a feeling it somehow got pulled off by a stray thread on a tshirt...
At least I don't feel like I'm going mad hearing others have had some

I had loads on my neck, in my armpits and on my tummy! My baby is 10weeks old now and they are all gone!

I seem to have loads on my next and one on my armpit. I'm glad that people say they go after birth as they really annoy me as they catch on things!

OMG! I have loads.....neck, underarm etc. It didn't even occur to me that it was pregnancy related! 🤦🏻‍♀️ So glad the general experience is that they will go! Phew!

Yes get them here aswell. Tiny new ones and any existing get bigger

Glad it's not just me!! So strange I wonder why they come out... As long as they disappear I think I can cope!!
