  • My skin cleared up while pregnant. Its all about the hormones

  • It is probably hormones. I would just limit sugary foods and drink plenty of water.

  • Progesterone. My skin got as bad as when I was in my mid-teens.

  • My skin has actually gotten A LOT better, although I had breakouts before pregnancy. My last pregnancy my skin got really nice as well. I guess it's simply how the hormones effect your body.

  • hormones flucuate :) it usually goes away after baby is born and your hormones get back in order

  • When I was pregnant with my daughter it was way worse then this pregnancy. I don't break out either but when im pregnant I break out everywhere including my back, shoulders, chest and arms. Its awful. I asked my ob about it and other then washing really good and avoiding things that make u break out there isn't much you can do. With my daughter it took about 3 months after I had her to fully clear up so it does go away. Im hoping since its not as bad with this one it will clear up faster :) good luck!

  • Hormones!!!

    Answer by shanapiv at 10:26 AM on Jan. 19, 2011

  • It's hormones, the levels of estrogen and progesterone change when you're pregnant and even during your cycle. Pretty much anything you experience in the latter part of your cycle, after you ovulate, will be felt through pregnancy. For some women that means crazy teenage acne, for others it means none at all. It's all hormonal.
