Mine is horrible!! I never had great skin but it was never bad.. Minor breakouts around my period but that's it. With ds, it cleared up during pregnancy but was terrible afterwards for awhile. With this one, I just started breaking out horribly over the last 2 weeks! It's awful! Waa!

Mine is ok right now. Minor blemishes, but they go away with witch hazel cleanser.

 I have ALWAYS had horrible skin.  EXCEPT when I'm pregnant.  I can go the entire last 7 months with out washing my face once and never have more then two or three zits pop up.  It lasts through nursing as well.  But as soon as a wean its back to breakout ville for my face.

My skin is awesome, which makes me think this baby is a boy.  I had HORRIBLE acne and mother's mask with only my DD, and boy boy pregnancies I had wonderful, clear skin.  My theory is all the extra estrogen maybe makes me break out??  Idk.

I broke out like crazy throughout my pregnancy with my son. Same thing is going on here with my daughter. I'm not surprised. It's the ONE pregnancy symptom that has been the same between the two.

I'm having more breakouts than usual.  And I have back and shoulder acne like crazy.  My skin is even more oily, which I don't need since you could already fry chicken on my face before pregnancy.

Me too! I swear the "glow" is just a nice way of saying "you look really oily" lol

I have the occasional breakout. And unfortunately, it's the big, painful, under your skin type :( I didn't used to get those.

Don't usually have breakouts but I do now with this pregnancy. I had great skin when was pregnant with my dd.
