    My face wasn't terrible but not its norm and my back broke out so bad I was so humilated I could only wear shirts that went up to my neck no tank tops or anything. I had to end up getting cream at my 6 week check up pp to get it cleared up it was disgusting

  • yep, one of my friends had pregnancy acne. Your hormones are crazy while you are pregnant and not all women get that pregnancy glow.
