Anyone have pregnancy symptoms that they enjoy?? For example, I usually have at least a tiny bit of acne and my hair is very frizzy and hard to manage most days. But when I am pregnant, my skin looks very clean and nice and my hair is smooth and shiny I am already seeing those thing kick in!!! Plus, my skin has been so dry lately and yesterday and today I noticed that it is very soft and smooth, no dryness at all. I know it isn't a symptom, but when I get pregnant the urge to take better care of my body kicks into gear... I am eating a ton of veggies, fruits, oatmeal, and granola, and I am making a better effort to get my exercises in that I "attempt" to do every other day but usually only do like once a week haha.

I have noticed that my frizzy hair is now much easier to manage and much straighter! I also notice that I am more conscious about what and how much I eat and how much exercise I get! I know it's because I am aware of the fact that what I am doing to my body is not just affecting me, but now a baby growing inside me! I have also noticed that I sweat far less and am now cold a lot of the time. I'll take being cold any day over being hot!!!

Nothing yet. My skin is super dry. But after the m/s my skin gets really good like yours. And I love how fast my nails grow!

Normally I don't need to shave but once or twice a month. However, this time I'm not sick. I'm ravenous. My body has a surplus of nutrients and calories to grow hair, which it does more than EVER.

Any my hair isn't shiny. It's oily and nasty.

Right on with this!

Aside from that, I don't have the nice glow that everyone talks about. If anything, my pores look larger and I have a few small zits now (my skin is normally clear). My hair is kind of oily at the roots, then dry and limp otherwise - I'm finding myself keeping it in a pony tail because I can't do anything else with it.

Perhaps with all of the money that I'm going to save on tampons, I'll splurge for a day at the spa!

Haha yea I heard before I got pregnant with my first that pregnancy either wreaks havoc on your skinand hair or makes them beautiful. I forgot about the nails! I have always been complimented on my nice, naturally hard and fast-growing nails but I remember them growing even faster when I was pregnant with #1.

I forgot about the no period thing cuz I have only had two since may 2011... looovvve bfing!!!
