Pregnancy acne has anyone suffered with pregnancy acne ? I'm riddled my chest is covered and so is my back and my hair line also luckily my face has only been affected slightly my skin is also very greasy and producing a lot of oil it's really getting me down nothing is helping and I'm to embarrassed to be undressed in front of my partner at the moment
@Chloe87 I haven’t had the acne so much. Sorry you’re going through that. Hormones!! You are beautiful even if your skin is having a tantrum! You’re growing a baby inside! It’s ok if your skin freaks out. Your glow comes from within! I know that’s cheesy, but it’s true. Try tea tree oil blemish stick, try exfoliating, try drinking more fluids to flush your system. I grew up with acne so I know what you’re growing through. ❤️Thanks everyone for the kind words and encouragement! Still haven’t felt movement but due to my increasing anxiety, I contacted my midwives Sunday and had a nice chat with them and felt a bit better. Not feeling as pregnant during this time is totally normal. Some call the second trimester the paradise phase! Lol! They offered for me to come in today to hear the heartbeat of I wanted reassurance. I decided to head up there, 45 minute drive, to hear it. I’m happy to say, she’s still in there thriving and kicking!! While listening, there were some other noises and the midwife said that’s her kicking!! 🥰😍👏🏼 So I am now super relieved and feeling more relaxed. I see them again this Friday! But now I don’t have to go through the week worried and stressed! I’m really enjoying getting to know my midwives. They are so attentive and solid. They really are there for me even if I’m having anxiety and worry. I feel so grateful! My newest symptom has been increasing heartburn. I popped papaya enzymes like 5x today. Anyone else getting heartburn?
Hiya all. Sorry for the long delay in writing a post. Hope your all well I'm 18 weeks and 1 day today and have my 20 week scan next week. I have to have a lengthening scan of my cervix to though due to my daughter coming early last time so they want to try and see if there's any indications of this baby boy coming early too. My sickness is definetly dropping and I'm eating like a pig. He gives me a good kick every now and again which is reassuring. Only down side is how tiered I am. They did say my iron levels are close to low and to take pregnacare. But looking at the size of the tablet there's no way I will be able to swallow them. there huge

@Chloe87 funny enough I realised this longing that I haven’t had emails for a while when I checked my spam they were in there. I think hotmail have this thing that if you delete so many of the emails it thinks it’s spam and switched without you knowing.@thinkingpositive1 tour right it’s gonna super fast feel like I only just found out we were expecting @Charlot-2411 I have to have a gd test as well. I had one on my son. I was advised not to clean my teeth before hand as this can affect the results. Expect a lot of waiting around as you have to have a set of bloods then drink like a lucazade type drink wait around for 2 hours then have another set of bloods. I have to have one again as my dad is diabetic and my weight is also 0.5 over. Just hopping they book it on a day when I’m not in work early otherwise I’ll have to book some leave or make the time up.
