Despite the initial nausea and heartburn, this pregnancy has been going pretty well. My one pet peeve is the ACNE! I must say, I’ve had some acne problem ever since we decided to practice Natural Family Planning and I stopped taking birth control about two years ago. However, with meds from my dermatologist, it was under control. I had to stop taking the meds a few months before we started trying to conceive, to get them out of my system. I’ve had the face of teen going through puberty ever since.
I thought between the prenatals and hormones, I was supposed to have beautiful, blemish-free skin? Yeah right! My breakouts have gotten WORSE! I have breakouts everywhere: face, neck, chest and back! What the Hell is going on?! Once again, I remember seeing the faces of my girlfriends during their pregnancies and I don’t recall this acne issue! Of course, it WOULD happen to me! LOL
All I have to say is, when my breastfeeding stint is over, my first stop is to Dr. Baker for all the drugs he can prescribe! LOL In the meantime, I may have to treat myself to a facial!
I love you baby but I want THIS face back!!!! Please and Thank You:)
