yep! And the one that got weird is on my face! No where near my belly. Then again I was a swollen hot mess everywhere! That was 5 yrs ago and it still is bigger. I've been told its ok and nothing to worry about as well! Good luck!!

I have one by my boob and it got bigger (and so did my boobs) when I was problems with it though.

Yep, no changes here either. I don't even remember it stretching at the end, it's right next to my belly button, maybe it was just a good location.

I'm pregnant and ALL of my moles have gone nutty. I had them checked out and the doctor said there's nothing suspicious and it's very normal.

I was diagnosed with melanoma during pregnancy. Mine was a NEW mole. Has the mole changed colors? My OB told me that it was normal to get new moles during pregnancy. I believed him and let some time pass before getting it checked. It did end up being melanoma, which is more common during pregnancy. Don't listen to an OB/GYN they know NOTHING About moles. See a derm. Odds are its not melanoma. Moles can still change during pregnancy and be benign. BUT it is always important to get them checked out.

I have a mole on my stomach...about the size of a rice krispie (that's all i can think has been there for as long as I can remember. It did not change at all from being pregnant.

I had one stretch during my first pregnancy with my twins. My dermatologist removed it just to be sure it wasn't something to be worried about. Came back normal.

Hormones can do all kinds of crazy things. Just go to a dermatologist - your physician can refer you. Removing it and testing it is a very simple procedure and then you will either get good news and be relieved, or know if you have to treat something. Letting it wait isn't good for you physically or mentally.

Yes! I would get it checked just to be safe, but my OB told me everything grows when your pregnant! I had several do this, and all was fine!
