Question Acne and pregnancy

Hi everyone! I'm new to healthboards. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for a year now and we think that I may be pregnant. Does anyone know if acne is a symptom of pregnancy??? Has anyone experienced this symptom??

Re: Acne and pregnancy

Probably the very first symptom I had was zits on my back (I NEVER get them there) and a giant one on my butt. My skin is normally pretty clear with the occassional breakout on the forehead or chin, but since I have been pregnant I've constantly had at least one zit on my cheek, which is unusual for me because I never break out on my cheeks.

Good luck to you! When are you testing?

Re: Acne and pregnancy

Thank you for asking this question! I never break out either. My lower back and my forehead has broken out pretty bad in the last few weeks. And my boobs are sore, tender and feel kind of heavy. I am due to start my period next Monday, so I plan to test this weekend. I'm not getting my hopes up and setting myself up for disappointment, but it would be nice to have a BFP!

When is your period due to start?
