    Some people get better skin and some get worse. I had really bad acne on my back, but my face looked great through pregnancy. Up until about two weeks ago. Now I am breaking out. But I didn't get nice hair (woulda loved thick hair, as I have thin and baby-fine hair) or nails. I have noticed that my eyebrows and eyelashes have started growing quicker. It is really weird. I have to pluck my usually tame eyebrows about every week. But yeah, I apparently had that glow for the middle trimester, but as soon as 35 weeks hit, it kinda started going downhill. But I am in the home stretch. And you will get through this. Imagine how wonderful it will be to have your body back and get all pretty again :) Sooner than you think.

    I'm sorry you feel so bad!

    Truth is, I did have the pregnancy glow from the second trimester onward. I never felt so beautiful in my life. I miss it and can't wait for that again...though it could be different with future pregnancies.

    A few months after the birth, you will feel more like your usual self again. Just enjoy this special time with your unborn baby, because, believe it or not, you're going to miss it. I loved being pregnant.

    Well the Glow is how other people view you. I think most pregnant women hate the way they look when they are pregnant. Tho some love their bump.

    I *think* I had this before I found out I was pregnant. Lol. I'm only almost 8 weeks now. But before I found out, this girl I work with was like "holy crap you look so beautiful, OMG are you pregnant, you so have that glow" I said "no.. not pregnant, thanks though" lol. But yeah, hormone changes suck!

    i think i did. im not sure how far in...maybe 15 weeks? my skin started getting really healthy looking, my cheeks had more color, my nails got much stronger and grew much faster, my hair was smoother and shinyer, but i still felt kinda icky looking anyway because of the hormones

    I feelt like I was glowing, aside from the hideous purple stretchmarks on my belly

    i didnt really get one until later on. i was in the 3rd trimester when people started telling me how great i look for as far as i am. now at 35 weeks i still get alot of people saying how great i look but i also cover it up lol. i wear makeup when i look like a bum in sweats and a t shirt so i dont look like a total hobo. but usually its hard when you feel crappy. i feel like i feel ugly and unattractive.
