  • I had 2 girls and I think I looked better before pregnancy...I gained a lot of weight and I've always had acne but it's worse now than it was in my teens

  • chinese culture it is different. my mil said since, " i still look pretty i must be having a girl and she said if you have a boy you will look ugly". Sometimes I don't know how to take her. she would prob tell me straight to my face too if she thought i was ugly

  • With my girl, I got acne and my hair fell out (literally got a large bald spot)...............with my boys, my hair got thicker, clear skin, and I got a tan for the first time in years.

  • With my girl, I was huge as a house had huge black circles under my eyes, Like the PP my hair just fell out in clumps, I was shedding worse then our cat :) I was literally a mess all 9 months. With my boys i looked radiant, glowing , full pretty. So for me it is indeed true!
