Pregnant, red marks on stomach, loss of appetite. Symptoms a cause of concern?

My wife is in her Third trimester of the pregnancy and has developed couple of Red Marks (Like blood clots) on her tummy skin. These marks are approx 2-3mm in dia. Please advise if these are of concern. Otherwise the pregnancy is going on fine, except for her not feeling hungry or craving for food. Thanks

Thanks for writing to us.
The marks that you have described are most likely to be striae gravidarum. These are normally seen on the abdominal skin during pregnancy and are harmless to the mother and the baby. These do get lighter after delivery.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
