Common Questions and Answers about Early pregnancy glow

pregnant

Avatar f tn So my whole life I've been told that pregnant women get a "pregnancy glow".. I was excited for this when I found out I was pregnant. However, all I got was dry skin!!! Mainly on my face around my nose! It's SO annoying. I have tried everything and it just won't go away... But on the bright side, I do look good pregnant and at 39 weeks I have no stretch marks. So can't complain I guess...
Avatar n tn What symptoms of early pregnancy are different than that of mentrual symptoms? Reason I ask is that friends often come to me for advice because they think they are pregnant. It seems that it's hard to tell early on because symptoms of both are similar. So how do you know if it's time to take a pregnancy test, or if you should opt not to because it could only be symptoms of the onset of menses?
363028 tn?1222234568 but usually a (chemical pregnancy) very early m/c is because either the egg or the sperm that fertilized the egg was defective... there is nothing that you could do to cause this... so relax and just glow.... again ..
Avatar n tn Hello, i have posted several times about my pregnancy and not being to see the baby at 6 weeks. Well they saw it at 7 weeks and everythng was fine. My levels were high at 7 weeks (87,000), but still considered in range. The doctor just said my hormone levels could have been leveling off early. With my first daughter, i never actually vomited, but felt nauseous if i didnt eat. Same thing this time, except i dont get an upset stomach as often.
Avatar f tn I was shocked and astounded when the second line appeared on the home pregnancy test... especially when I had been told conceiving would be difficult because I have issues with cysts. But low and behold, surprise surprise haha. I'm 6 weeks now, and what I find strange is that I'm just only very tired and battling with the fatigue. Other than that I have full, slightly tender breasts. I have cramping off and on and zero bleeding. Is this normal? I feel like I'm not pregnant.
Avatar f tn I'm so over my pregnancy & I'm only 13wks, I wake-up everyday sick & it last all day, I'm always hungry but I don't know what to eat, I have a very sensitive nose so all smells bother me especially greasy foods, I never have any energy, I'm tired all the time & I just want my body back, I know that sounds selfish of me but this pregnancy is making me miserable, This is my second child & I should be happy (which I am) I'm just irritated, I don't have that pregnancy glow that they
Avatar f tn constipation, heartburn, breast tenderness, runny nose, and eyesight problems. Estrogen is responsible for that pregnancy glow, regulating hormones, and the overall development of the fetus. Hope that helps!
Avatar f tn Oh I think we're okay with talking about it in here lol but people who don't no better always talks about the glow and being beautiful blah blah lol. Let's talk about the farting and burping.
Avatar n tn Hi everyone, just wanted to share a bit of helpful info with everyone regarding UTI cure during pregnancy! I was 21 weeks preg and had a Severe UTI. I went to the doctor (walk in clinic) and obviously told doctor i was pregnant. I was in so much pain i was crying. of course he did the pee test and it showed infection etc etc. so he gave me a prescription etc. anyhow i go home and read the leaflet that came with the meds and it said in block letters, DO NOT TAKE DURING PREGNANCY.
5141429 tn?1379908422 idk if you've seen the movie what to expect when you're expecting, but one character is looking for "the glow" that every girl gets when she's pregnant, but she doesn't find her "pregnancy glow" until she's holding her baby in her arms, he's her glow ad she says! So, you'll find your joy soon, when you're holding that beautiful baby in your arms for the first time!!
Avatar n tn The best urine test according to everything I have read is the First Response Early pregnancy test, which can pick up Hcg levels sometimes as low as 12, but usually not until they reach 25. All and all you are looking at somewhere between 5 and 10 days. That is why most doctors tell you to wait 11 to 14 days and come in for blood work. I know the wait is unbearable, and I did do a home pregnancy test way before my blood work date, because I could not wait.
Avatar f tn I didnt think my lil man could be up there this early? But i dont know. sleeping is getting a little uncomfortable now too!! O the joys of pregnancy!!lol so how are you feeling? whats your due date? Have ya'll registerd yet? O and one more thing, on your baby registry did you put the things on there that you liked despite the cost or did you register items according to what people think is affordable? Im stuck because i have expensive taste but not to where they cant get it.
Avatar n tn I was having many pregancy symtoms along with the late period such as feeling tired all the time, nasea,and my husband and family even said that I had the pregnancy glow. Then I got the call today, very frustrating. Then I started felling like I might start. This evening, I had very light spotting - would have missed it if I was not looking, but nothing ever since. I have a call in to another doctor for a second oppinion too. But would love to hear what has happened in similar situations.

10720243 tn?1415585869 -The extra hormones can cause massive break outs (I was basically the definition of pizza face) -Your boobs will double, if not tripple in size (Bye bye A cup bra, Hello extremely full C cup) -Your waist doubles in size (Went from 23in to 45in) -The pregnancy "glow" only pasts through the second trimester (First trimester I looked horrible from hormones, my body finally got used to them in the second trimester, and in the third I am just a tired hippo with 30 bags under my eyes)
148691 tn?1260198503 As far as the heartbeat, given that a day or two can make a huge difference in early pregnancy, the general rule of thumb is being able to see the heartbeat on u/s at 7+ weeks. Doc's tend to have some flexible schedules anymore. You could schedule early in the morning and see if you can get in before work or conversely, see if you can schedule late in the day. Also there are sometime slunch appts.
Avatar n tn I heard that CM increases with pregnancy.....I don't remember getting this with my son in my early pregnancy, but then again that was 10 years ago. I was pregnant in the spring and miscarried, but I am pretty sure I had extra CM at first. Who knows....good luck, maybe this is it for both of us. Let me know your results.

Avatar f tn no not everyone, some people look shocking while pregnant but most peopl when they get into the second trimester have the pregnancy glow going on lol, it generally when you feel the best as well, :)
Avatar f tn When you ladies were early on in your pregnancy how did you feel.? When were you able to find out you were having a baby boy? Any morning sickness? Acne? Certain cravings? Glow to your face? Moodiness? Anything specific ?

18614560 tn?1466322566 //www.early-pregnancy-tests.com/blood-pregnancy-test.html . A friend gave me that link. Thank you for the advice ^^ . The great thing is I'm not really nauseous anymore I think the Depo should no longer be given to women.
Avatar n tn If you are pregnant the test will show pos. in 4-6 weeks so if you have missed your peirod and the test is neg. I dont think your pregnant. it could very well be stress. when i get stressed it can make me sick and give me a head ache.
4368956 tn?1357409671 I pile the makeup on and feel like a clown but without it, the dark rings around my eyes look horrible. So much for a pregnancy glow!

1035252 tn?1427231433 We've all had those pregnancy myths that we hoped (or feared) were true. What is your #1 pregnancy myth that you learned was just that, a myth, when you became pregnant, and what is the 1 thing about pregnancy that you discovered that you totally didn't expect, myths or not! For me, the #1 myth was "the glow". you know what i'm talking about! that "glow" pregnant women get that turns out to be blotchy skin and/or acne? I was so suckered in on that one.
Avatar f tn I'm 37 and had my tubal 10 and 1/2 years ago after the c-section delivery of my second child. My period is now nearly two weeks late....I've only been late twice before and have two children to prove it. I'm suffering an almost constant dull ache in my lower back and occasional, mild abdominal cramping, along with a headache that just won't go away.
Avatar n tn Not to sound rude but if your are not allowed to use hot tubs and have hot baths, you would think tanning would definitly be out of the question. Besides pregnancy gives you a natural glow.
Avatar f tn Just wondered if anyone knew when the second trimester actually starts as every source is telling me differently? Also when did everyone announce their pregnancy im 13 weeks on Tuesday and can't hold it in much longer!!!
