*sigh*  I have always had a pregnancy glow with all my pregnancies.  This time, I think I am green, alternating with white as a sheet.  I don't think I could glow even if I wore  makeup. 

 

I look awful.  Anyone else?  I am waiting for the zits to start.

I am a skin disaster.  I seem to remember glowing last time...?  Well, this time I'm zitty as all get-out.  I was blaming the weather before IO knew I was pregnant (even though I've never had skin problems like this before), so now I'm actually glad to have a "real" excuse for looking like such a mess...

I am actually even putting in a little extra effort on my appearance, because I look so awful.  And feel so awful.  The extra effort isn't paying off.  at all.

*Raises hand* May I join? Even before I found out I was pregnant I was looking quite awful. I don't know if it's the pregnancy or my stressful job, but something has to give! I do at least "glow" with makeup, which I'm quite thankful for, but then there are the zits and makeup only makes them worse. I haven't had acne like this since I was a teenager.

My acne is pretty insane too. I switched awhile back to just using my natural soap to wash, with a witch hazel/tea tree oil/grapefruit seed extract/chamomile toner, and my skin was great. Now nothing works and it is awful. :(

Serena, I am right there with you!  People keep asking me if I have a rash on my face - but it is just theses red blotches that come and go.  Some days they are there and some days they are not! I really feel like a big, pasty-faced, blob right now.  I am soooooo looking forward to the 2nd trimester and hopefully getting my groove back!

 This made me laugh. Because I feel like a big pasty-faced blob too!  I need to whiten my teeth because this weird color I am sporting (my face) is making them look really yellow.  Maybe I just need a makeover. My hair is cooperating though for once.  yay.
