    I'm just wondering how true this OWT is about the complexion 'glowing' when one is carrying a girl, and vice versa, less glowing and prone to acne if carrying a boy. I'm carrying a boy, and I do like quite lacklustre with random pimples on my chin area. Just curious, those of you having a boy, do you feel your complexion has seen better days? And for those having girls, are you glowing?

    my boy has given me a patch of spotty, dry, red rosacea on one cheek and while it certainly glows, it's not the sort of glow I thought pregnant ladies got.

    however a friend who I hadn't seen for a month saw me last week and she thought I WAS glowing. (as opposed to the usual pale, wan speciman I usually present.)

    My complexion is really good and I'm having a boy, but my complexion was pretty good before, too. My hair has lots of body (unlike usual) but gets greasy really fast :-(

    Ah, the joys of pregnancy!

    Haven't glowed a single momen of this pregnancy and my hair has gone to complete crap.

    Someone told me it's because when you are carrying a boy your hormones and his hormones are at odds.

    Where with a girl you get beautiful skin and hair cos it's like a double dose of female hormones.

    I dont know myself however people keep telling me that i look glowing! Theyr prob lying to make me feel better! :rofl:, quite a lot of people have said so though and i dont feel too bad about myself and im always self consiouce anyway, except because im putting on weight so there may be a little truth in the glowing part! :rofl: My hairdresser also said my hairs much better to work with and has got a great bounce!

    I havent had it confirmed but pretty sure im carrying a girl (i always had a feeling and also myself and my mother in law were told by a medium it was a girl, but hey they could be wrong) . i will find out for sure on Saturday! I dont mind either way! :happydance:

    xx
