Is anyone having any complexion issues? My face wasn't always the greatest to begin with, but now its HORRIBLE. Within the past month, I'm getting large angry red pimples on my chin, and a few on my forehead which I've never had before.

Is this something related to the hormones still adjusting (still?!?!) or is this unusual? I haven't changed anything like my facial routine or my makeup, so I don't think it relates to that. Any advice would be appreciated

Yes! I haven't had any issues until the last month! I only figure my body is riding the wave of trying to ovulate but then it remembers "oh, right, you still have a baby who needs you all night long, so he must be too little for a new sibling".
The ones I have gotten have been the worst of my life though. Usually on my chin, which is indicative of hormones. Usually, my skin is perfect when nursing....that is, until a few months before I ovulate.

My forehead has been a mess for a month or so. I'm sick of it.

I know the chin ones are usually hormone related, and that's where I've always gotten them, but not these giant red ones. And now add in ones on my forehead? Very frustrating, and embarrassing. I don't want to put on makeup so as to help avoid clogging them and making it worse, but I don't want to go out in public, they are horrible!!!

My skin was looking a bit nasty but I had a facial and bought a new exfoliater and things are much better! I find when I take my prenatal vitamins regularly my skin is a lot better then when I don't bother.

I'm getting a few pimples now too. I was fine up until the last couple of weeks and then BAM! Must be hormones. Maybe I'm gearing up for my first post-partum AF.

I'm pretty diligent about my prenatals - I'm out of pregvit and back on jamiesons, and one pill a day is much easier to remember than two!

Glad to hear I'm not alone though!
