Default Re: pregnancy when having port wine stain?

I have a port wine stain surrounding my left eye and forehead. With all three of my pregnancy's I had little tumors grow on my birthmark that would just bleed without stopping if I picked it. It's called something, I forget how to spell it. They were removed with a scapal and then burned to deaden the skin. It happens because of the hormones in your pregnancy and only on the birthmark. All three of my girls were born birthmark free, it's not something you pass on, and trust me my childrens were well worth the little tumors!! Good luck!
