I am not at all pleased about my new look! I looked in the mirror yesterday to notice new little bumps all over my face. It is crazy! I don't remember my skin ever looking like this before (well at least not in about 15 years). So I guess if my ever expanding waistline and grumpiness don't give it away, my skin certainly will! Anyone else or am I the only lucky one out there?

Mine looks awful! I'm breaking out everywhere. I had really bad acne in HS, so it's not that far of a stretch for me, but I'm really annoyed by it.

Yep! Got a few zits I'm not happy about.... and my skin has been so nice for such a long time. It's weird!

Me too. It's weird - my 1st 2 pregnancies my skin was flawless. I mean, absolutely perfect, glowing, I loved it. After Luke weaned, my skin freaked out, and I thought it'd clear up when I got pg.
Um,no.

Yup ... I'm breaking out under my jaw line and around my hair line ... at least they are some what concealed. But the ones under my jaw are itchy too ...

With ds#1 I broke out all over my back ... those were so painful. Then with ds#2 almost nothing on my back nor face. Gotta love hormones!!! :

My skin is worse as an adult than it ever was as a teen. Ugh. Can't tell if my skin is worse now because of pregnancy, or because I stopped using Proactiv when I found out I was pregnant.

Mine is too, but it usually gets like this right before my facial. Normally I would have it this week, but my gal is on vacation so I have to wait 2 more weeks. I'm hoping it is just the usual and not the start of something...I'll be able to tell after next month's appt.

Granted I didn't shower all weekend (camping), but my face is covered in those annoying tiny little zits. This sucks! 15 was no fun the first time around!

Mine isn't too bad yet, but with dd my face was the worst it's ever been. So, I am guessing it will get bad again soon.
