I hear you! I thought your skin was supposed to get more oily during pregnancy, but mine has actually gotten super dry too – to the point that I have minor peeling on parts of my face. WTH?!

I’ve been taking my prenatals for almost 2 months now too, I’m almost 5 weeks pregnant and all I have noticed is super oily skin/breakouts. I always have taken biotin for my hair and skin, but nothing really seems different since taking the prenatals. It is supposed to help with energy, HA WHAT ENERGY?!

My nails have been growing faster and are super thick and strong. That’s the only positive side effect I’ve had. Also, I haven’t gotten any colds so I think the vitamins have maybe helped boost my immune system. I’ve been taking them for about a year.

I also did not get any great skin or hair…the opposite actually especially with complexion, boo. No perfect pregnancy skin for me. Baby girl is “stealing my beauty” as they say! ๐Ÿ˜‰

My nails have gotten stronger and growing faster!  Other than that, no real difference. My hair has always grown at record speeds of an inch a month..  Oh and my face is now always broken out, so that’s fun.

I took prenatals for years before I got pregnant. My hair and nails have always grown super fast.  

All of a sudden every nail broke in the same week.  I thought maybe it was stress.  And then I got the positive test.  My nails stayed craptastic through the first trimester, but they’re lovely long and strong again now in the 3rd!  So weird.

My nails are definitely growing faster!! I normally have shellac on them and I used to be able to make it last 3 weeks… Now by the end of 2 weeks I have a massive gap at the bottom of my nail.

My hair has improved, but I have also started using a better shampoo/conditioner and am putting a keratine oil in it before I blowdry it, so I think that is more to do with the products than the pre-natals!

FWIW I’m not pregnant (yet), just getting ready.

My nails are definitely stronger and grow much MUCH faster. But I didn’t notice that until I got further into my pregnancy (I’m 35 weeks and noticed it as I got closer to the second trimester) and I had been on prenatals for 6 months prior to getting pregnant, so I don’t know if it’s the vitamins or hormones doing it. I also have a pixie cut and haven’t noticed much change in the texture of my hair, but it grows faster. As for skin- yeah, no. I get a break out once a month. And I’m having a boy, so I can’t even excuse it away with that old wives’ tale of girls stealing your beauty. I NEVER had acne before. Congrats on your pregnancy! Maybe you’ll notice some beauty benefits soon ๐Ÿ™‚

I was on prenatals for a year before I got pregnant but honestly didn’t notice a difference until I actually got pregnant.  While I was pregnant my hair grew like crazy and totally didnt fall out and so did my nails – about a month after having my son I was shedding like a dog though lol.

Not pregnant yet, but all I’ve really noticed is my complexion is clearer!

Also my nails are growing super fast. I actually like my nails really short so I feel like I have to cut them every other day!

Not pregnant over here, but I’ve been taking pre Natalie for a couple of months. My nails are growing at record speeds! And I think my immune system has gotten stronger. My husband got really sick last week, had to take him to the doctor with a horrifying cough, and I never got sick. I will catch anything and everything usually. So the pills must be doing something…..
