This question is for African American Women

Did your nose get bigger while pregnant and if so when did it get back to its normal size. I also have another question. Did you get darker during pregnancy? When did you return back to your normal complexion?

  • I'm just your boring, average white woman, but my nose got WAY bigger when I was pregnant. I have a photo of my husband and me holding each of our newborns, and I look like Jimmy Durante in both of them!

  • Anon 1:07 you can keep the drama this was a simple question that required a simple answer. Didnt ask for any info on African Americans and as far as you know I could have been born in Africa. Although I wasnt I still consider myself an AFRICAN AMERICAN.

  • I think every woman who is NOT of African decent read this question...I just needed to know! I am Irish and Austrian and my nose got wider too, perhaps to compensate for the squished lungs. As for getting darker, I did, but in these lovely spots and splotches...I look like a girraffe! Hopefully they will fade.
