    Yes! And I hate it!!! Fell like a teenager again! And loads of blackheads too.....:hissy:

    I've read in a book that it is normal in the beginning of the pregnancy. Because of the hormonal storm you can have the same symptoms as during puberty.

    Hopefully it will pass in a next few weeks :hugs:

    Totally! I noticed it from what was (in retrospect) about 5dpo. Reminds me of being about 13 again...

    My skin is terrible at the moment as well!! It tends to go through stages of getting better and then worse....right now it is terrible!! I have also had spots come up on my back and neck and I never get that.

    I have just been using an exfoliator and spot gel.xx

    Yeah me too! & I hate it.

    Yes to the greasy hair as well- I used to be able to get away with washing my hair only 2 or 3 times a week and now it has gone so gross I feel like I should do it every day!

    My spots have appeared mainly on my chest....which isnt great as I really want to show my cleavage off at the moment! Quite proud of it!! :rofl:

    Also my back has flared up to how it used to be when I was a teenager. I had really bad acne ALL OVER my body for years and they finally went about 3 years ago......and THEY'RE BACK! :hissy: Thankfully may face is ok at the moment...just the odd one or two which I can handle. My chest is really bad though...painful and horrid! :hissy:

    I gotta say that my skin has really improved. I used to be prone to spots and suffered with acne as a teen. But since getting pg I havent had any spots and I've even stopped wearing foundation as my skin just seems to be so nice atm!
    My hair on the other hand is a different story lol! I used to be able to wash it every third day but now it feels nasty after 24 hours :(

    I'm completely the same! I've even stopped wearing foundation too, and that's very unusual for me, I always used to be completely caked. In the past week though I've been getting them really badly.. I guess these things don't last! :dohh:
