Why do people say pregnant women are glowing?

I never see the glow! People always look miserable to me.

  • Personally, I think it's the sweat, heh. I never felt glowing, that's for sure. But apparently for some women, the increased blood flow makes them look healthier and "glowing". I have yet to meet one of those women though.

  • With my first I was glowing. I was as happy as can be and had the clearest most perfect complexion, the only "symptom" I had was a perfectly round pregnant belly.

    Number 2 was a completely different story *sigh*

  • I think I had my moments! My first one was the best (don't tell him that!) because I was so excited and everything was so new. But I can agree withthe glowing being my sweat covered face! I always sweat way more when I am pregnant!

  • The day that I conceived, my husband kept telling me that I was glowing (we had no idea that I was pregnant)
