I have developed dozens of moles!

Has anyone found that they have suddenly grown lots of little moles and other skin tag-like things? I have developed them under my breasts, on my chest and on either side of my neck. Some of them are quite big and flap around!! My doctor says this is fairly common and that they should dissappear, but I'm not convinced. Wonder if I should see a dermatologist after the birth?

I did develop some skin tags. Am pretty "moley" LOL so it's hard to say if I got more of those. I would just chock it up to one more weird pregnancy thing and not worry about it for now. Give it some time after the birth and you can always have them seen to later if they don't go away. Believe me, they will probably be the last thing on your mind after the baby comes!

We did the thread thing with dh and it does work quite well, doesn't it? You do have to be careful about putting alcohol on it. I did it with one and forgot the alcohol for a couple of days and it got really sore.
Oh, I also got these really weird blood blister looking things on my hands!! Even the dermatologist didn't know what they were. He tried freezing them, then I did the string thing on the bigger one, which worked. The smaller one finally went away on its own but was frozen a couple of times which may have had some effect. It was hard to tell.

I grew a skin tag on my right nipple during my first pregnancy and it has appeared again during this pregnancy in the same place. I thought I was just odd I have also grown a mole on my right breast above the nipple. I have been told that it is common to grow moles in pregnancy, but it does make me a bit paranoid to see them appear.

yes i had a few moles growing on me whilst pg, now they have disappeared but not on my nipple part as a big brown mole appears after i had baba but docs said nothing to worry about...but still got one tiny skin tag on my neck.
