  • Yep and those pesky hormones are to blame. You can visit a dermatologist if it bothers you enough, to get some pregnancy-safe solutions to acne.

  • Yes, it's also normal for acne or breakouts that already existed to clear up. The hormones effect everyone differently.

  • ugh, I did with my 1st! So far so good with this one though...

    You have to be careful with what you wash with too, most/all facial cleansers that are supposed to help with acne have chemicals in them that you're supposed to avoid will pregnant... it's hormonal so there's not much you can do, it will go away after you have him.her...
