A lot of new mothers get really embarrassed about some of the changes in your body while lugging around the precious cargo. My biggest embarrassment came when milk began to leak. I quickly learned to add a little padding to all my bras. I was, however, disappointed that my body never did two things: make my belly button pop out and grow the Linea Nigra. What is Linea Nigra? Nadine Beck explains,
Increased estrogen levels boost the body’s production of melanin, the natural substance that gives your skin pigment, resulting in your darkened nipples and “linea nigra,” the line running down your tummy. You may also notice melasma: dark splotches of skin on your face. These changes typically begin in the second trimester and tend to affect darker-complexioned women more noticeably. Unfortunately these lovely darkened lines are not preventable, but they usually fade soon after birth.
What about you? What was your most embarrassing pregnant moment?
