Its a few days past week 14 and I’m still waiting for that “Pregnancy Glow” to kick in. So far the only glow I have comes from oily skin.
Why was I blessed with an “Ugly” pregnancy? My skin has always been clear. One pimple a month, if that. Never more. Suddenly little zits are cropping up all over! I dread looking in the mirror every morning because I never know what will be staring back at me. Puffy eyes, another zit, hives on my neck. I’m a mess.
I’ve been told “Oh, it’s a girl! Girls steal your beauty, and boys give you that glow.” Well, this little girl (maybe) is in big trouble when she gets here because we don’t condone stealing of any kind in this family!
I’m truly blessed to have such an amazing husband. He still thinks I’m beautiful (or at least he tells me I am, daily) in spite of my man brows, pizza face and puffy eyes.
Someone please pass the Noxema!
How did you look during your pregnancy? Did you have that glow? Or did your skin look worse than a 13 year olds?
