Throughout my pregnancy, my belly-button turned black inside. I thought this was just due to my tummy stretching, but, I had my baby in january and it's still the same! Anyone else had this?

Hi MMM, I've never heard of this happening, hopefully somebody will come along soon with some words of wisdom for you soon, just thought I'd bump your message up a bit

mine did too!!! It took ages to return to its normal colour and I sort of had to scrub it back to its normal colour in the end. It happened with both my pregnancies.

Scrub it? So you mean it's like dirt?.. YUK!!

No, i don't think it's dirt, just a pigment change!! But after a while I reckon there was just one layer of darker skin left, so it came off when i scrubbed it!!

Scrubbing it is, then! Thanks. Glad I'm not the only one!
