Here! And I hate it. At least it is subtle and easily covered with make up, but I really don't like wearing make up all the time. I'm over it already! lol

Me! I had it with my first pg and I've got it now. I get these deeeeep cystic pimples too, and they HURT!!

It's hormonal and you can't do much about it when it's hormones. (or so I hear)

Mineral powder is the best I've used, especially during pregnancy. It doesn't clog your pores the same way a lot of others can. I've pretty much only had zits under my jawline, but them a random 1-2 on my face, that are horrible.

I think the best solution really is to wash your face everyday and avoid touching your face.

I had it awful with my first, it hasn't been so bad YET this time. I was using clindamycin (sp?) during my first pregnancy, but it honestly didn't do much.

Yeah, mine's been acting up too and it's so annoying! I'm not used to this!

What works best for me is mineral makeup and - especially - using a high quality toner and moisturizer. Don't dry out your face with harsh alcohol or chemicals. Always always keep it moisturized! And drink a lot of water, too.

Yes I HATE it!!!! I look horrible at times (although my husband has been great and says I'm still beautiful). I usually have bad break outs on my forehead now. I usually would get like a pimple or two a month, and now it's all over. Luckily, I have bangs right now so it covers up my forehead, ha ha.

It's also on my chin and around my mouth and near my ears. So far none on my cheeks but I probably just jinxed myself!

Hopefully it'll clear up soon!

One of my first preggo symptoms was lack of acne! Normally I break out just after ovulation and it happens until after I'm off AF -- So I had NO ACNE and I was like MUAHAHAHA YES! -- ...Until yesterday, today I have like 5 across my jawline from ear to ear -- one in the center of my neck literally and one on my forehead -- there are also lots of blackheads all over my chin, nose, and forehead -- IT IS HORRIBLE!

I'm washing washing washing -- it's not working ugh. Guess we'll just have to deal with it. What I really hate is the VOLCANO on the left side of my jaw. It's just huge! That's what I get for being so happy about my oh so clear face.

I must be one of the lucky people. Pregnancy with my first gave me crystal clear skin. It was great. So far, it seems to be doing the trick again!

I'm sorry! For once, I have clear skin. It's amazing to me. I will deal with the horribleness after the babe is born, don't you worry!

I had severe acne for years and got it completely cleared up in 2009 using acne.org. Now I've had only one small pimple in pregnancy so far - it's a miracle! My ob said the benzoyl peroxide and aha were fine to use topically. I highly recommend it but be forewarned that there's a skin adapting period to get through first...
