Normally (non-pregnant) I have PCOS and I always have acne.  I get kinda 'fuzzy' (light body hair but not enough to be bothersome), have issues sleeping, and a few other things.

For most of this pregnancy (my first) my PCOS symptoms have pretty much disappeared.  Now in the past few days they're sneaking back in.  My face is breaking out, my hair is getting greasy faster, I'm waking up at 4 AM sweating, and I actually have to shave more than once a week again.  I'm half expecting my hair to start falling out.


Did anyone else notice a hormonal shift near the end?  Do you remember what week?  How long after the shift before you gave birth?

Just wanted to reply that I didn't notice this with my pregnancy. The most prominant thing I noticed at the end of the pregnancy was my inability to empty my bladder fully & to sleep.

Surviving sleep deprivation one day at a time with dd (Oct '11) & ds (Oct '08).
