    Sorry ladies, I just wanted to share my horror with you all. I was getting out of the shower this morning and caught a glipse of my face in the mirror. I thought I'd managed to spill some food or fruit juice on my chin, but on closer inspection I seem to have developed a nasty skin discolouration overnight!
    I now look like I have a large love bite on this side of my chin - very stylish!
    Has anyone esle got this? I know it's normal to get brown blotches and a butterfly mask in pregnancy but this is really purple and looks like lots of broken veins on my chin - do you think it's normal?????

    Haven't experienced this, but my face is sooooooo spotty right now, its depressing.
    Maybe its just the extra blood, and will go soon, could it be cos u were hot coming out of the shower has it faded now? xx

    No, my Mum's a nurse and has just had a look at it. She thinks I've slept on it funny (with my hand squashing my face) and burst a few little blood vessels. She said to get it checked out at my appointment next week if it's still there. Good job I'm on bed rest and not going anywhere!
