For the past few days, I've noticed a big patch of skin on the front of both my thighs. Its more tan than the rest of my skin. Any idea why?

Not exactly sure, but I have areas of weird pigmentation. All the women in my family do, and mine pop up when summer rolls around for some reason. Although, I did notice the other day that I have an area on my belly where it looks bruised. It's where baby's bum had been for almost 2 weeks so I probably bumped it a number of times. Anyway, due to the crazy hormones and stuff, I would just assume that it's just an area of weird pigmentation. If it grows or changes, or the skin texture itself changes, it can't hurt to ask a doc.

Your skin pigments different when you're pregnant, so it's normal to get patches of discolored skin. They go away after baby though! Totally normal! Still, talk to your Dr about it to ease your mind

I think it's hormones. I get the dark patches of skin in my armpits...so I look like I never shave!
