Ewwww! Skin tags!

Why does pregnancy do such gross things to our body? I'm supposedly prone to skin tags anyway, because of my PCOS, but before I got pregnant, I only had two on my neck which were pretty recent, and one in my armpit from forever ago.

But the other day I was examining the two on my neck, and was actually relieved to see that they looked smaller. I checked them out again a few days later, but they mysteriously seemed to be back to their regular size. A few days later again, and they had shrunk again. Confused, I angled the mirror slightly, and to my horror, realized that I was looking at a completely different set of skin tags! The original two are farther back! I have FOUR on that side of my neck now!

I looked on the other side of my neck, and ewww! I have like three on my collar bone!

I really hope that my provincial health care covers their removal and I won't have to pay for it. I suspect that they don't--it's probably considered cosmetic, but maybe my GP will take mercy on me.

Anyone else got something gross going on with their skin? Anyone develop the linea nigra yet?

Ew that sucks! I get those from my father, they suck! Luckily, and knock on wood, I haven't got any this pregnancy. Just still have the ones I've ways had which thankfully are very few and hidden.
