2 Seperate Questions...

1. Does anyone know what causes birth / beauty marks? I have alot of them but mostly on my arms.

2. At what point would your breasts start leaking?

Any help to either question would be quite helpful.

Re: 2 Seperate Questions...

To your 2nd question I have been pregnant 4 times & my breast never leaked until after the baby's were born. But I do know that in some women their breast leak during pregnancy. It is different for everyone.

Re: 2 Seperate Questions...

Can't help you with your first question. As far as breasts leaking, all women are different but I can assure you that leaking before your baby is born is completely normal. This is my 2nd preg. and with both, my breasts started to leak around the 8th month. Not a lot, but it was definitely there. Hope that helps.

Re: 2 Seperate Questions...

your 2nd question...... i started leaking before i was even late for my period. that was my first sign of pregnancy. it wasnt enough to actually soak my shirt or anything, but enough for me to notice. and then alot in the last month of pregnancy.

Re: 2 Seperate Questions...

Birth marks and such are caused by increased melatonin (i think that is how you spell it) in your skin in a certain place. What I have always considered a beauty mark is a mole, and I don't know what causes them.
If you mean why do they get worse in pregnancy it's because the hormones that your body make extra of can change your skin tone, I can't remeber what it's called, but it's the same thing that causes that line some women get down there bellys and the "mask of pregnancy" the red stuff on your face.
My breasts leaked for a while at like 11 weeks, then quit. Then they started again at about 30 weeks, and still do, but only one of them!
