@kelly105:  It is 100% bull.

This makes me so angry, i was just talking about this with Darling Husband last night.

With Dirty Delete I had fantastic skin.  Great, strong nails.  My hair was long and shiny.

With DS I have had pimple after pimple.  Cold sores.  (For the first time in my life).  My hair feels like straw.  My nails won’t stop breaking.  I’m a hot mess, no joke.

I think it’s a wives tale but I will say my pg friends who are pregnant with boys are looking amazing!! The ones pg with girls are looking exhausted and do not have the same glowy look, I think it’s because they have both had morning sickness through their whole pregnancy while the boy mammas have had it pretty breezy in comparison.

I had never heard of this before. Judging by PPs experiences it is not true, thank goodness.

Having a boy.  1st trimester- no pimples.  2nd trimester- some pimples. 3rd trimester- pimples on face AND back. Lovely.

I’m having a boy and feel like my face is better than before I was pregnant.  I’m sure it is all luck and how your body deals with the hormones.  I have a friend who is having a girl and is really broken out.  She told me this wise tale when she saw me.  I still don’t believe it.

Not true.  I have a 3 and 4 year old (boy and girl) so I was pregnant with both and none took away from my awesomeness.Ha

Hahaha TOTALLY not true for me.  I looked like a total train wreck my whole first trimester…covered in pimples, greasy skin, if it wasn’t greasy it was peeling dry…hot mess.  I’m having a little boy.  🙂
