QOTD: Sunday

Is your face breaking out during this pregnancy, or is you skin more clear than normal?

I haven't had skin problems since I was in high school, nor did I have any issues with my other pregnancies, but this one is ridiculous! I'm thinking about going and getting that stupid proactive stuff just to help me out!

First trimester I always breakout like I'm 13. Then second trimester it goes back to normal. Pretty clear unless I get stressed out. Then third trimester I tend to break out again. Hormone shift again?!?!?

Growing up I had bad acne. It was so embarrassing. My face is pretty clear now but I still have some of the scars from when I was younger. I still get occasional breakouts. When I get pregnant my skin is amazing. It's very clear, gets a nice color, and it's not nearly as oily. I wish I could keep it forever....lol.

I haven't seen a change except in hair growth. I'm constantly plucking odd things now.

My face has been totally clear the entire time. I hope I didn't just jinx myself, lol! That being said, I don't escape breakouts...I get them on my shoulders and back a lot. But I had that before getting pregnant!

My skin has been pretty much the same. I had a few breakouts, but I think that was mainly because I was lazy and didn't wash my face before going to bed.

Mine's been about the same. My skin was horrible with Nicholas though.

mine's the same, but I never break out anyway! My skin seemed drier the first trimester, I moisturized ALL the time!

Same here.
