Okay, that title's not super funny if you haven't seen Waiting for Guffman...

But, dude, if you haven't seen Waiting for Guffman, you should!

ANYhow, has anyone else noticed her face changing in pregnancy? It has happened with all of my pregnancies, so it's no fluke. My nose gets wider (it goes back to normal within 24 hours of birth), and I swear my face looks flatter and my lips look bigger.

Crazy, huh?

This happened with my previous pregnancies. I haven't noticed it too much this time...yet.

My lisp is also more prominent the more pregnant I get. Normally it is very very slight.

Go bite your pillow! Pregnancy doesn't change my face, but I've noticed this in other people. Sometimes it can be quite startling.

However, I love, love, love Guffman and quote Corky St. Clair all the time.

My nose did get wierd last time. Not much yet. I think my face looks a bit thinner but who knows... we don't have a mirror up in our bathroom so I don't look much! (we moved in about 6 months ago and we are still working on the house and my husband and I can't decide what mirror to get...)

Something changed ... my face got thinner or my ears moved ... because for three weeks now, my glasses have fallen straight off my face every time I look down to do something. Annoying!

Okay, so how about this? I heard an old wives' tale that if your face changes, you're having a girl, because girls steal their mothers' good looks.

You have two girls, I have two girls... Huh? Huh?

ETA: soccerchic21 disproves this theory.

My face changes too. My nose gets wider and my face gets even rounder. And I've only had boys. And my nose is wide and my face is round to begin with. Guess it wouldn't be fair to the rest of me that is getting rounder and wider if my face was exempt.

My face got super pregnant with my last baby. I had to have a new photo for my DL taken at eight months, and bartenders regularly question whether it's really me.
Knock wood, but it seems that only my lips are pregnant this time...and it's not a change I mind

My boss told me the other day she could see it in my face, but I don't "look" pregnant otherwise. I don't see it in my face, but I do see it in my body.
