Okay, this may sound absolutely crazy, but… Did anyone’s nose spread/get wider/bigger during pregnancy? I’m 31 weeks pregnant and started noticing my nose is much wider and bigger a few weeks ago. It’s even worse when I smile… I feel hideous!! Is this just due to swelling and will it go down after my LO gets here?
Ugh, doesn’t help that I have reallllly bad acne on my chest and back that only seems to be getting worse. Gotta love pregnancy 🙂

It has not happened to me but my mother-in-law swears it happened to her so I don’t think you’re crazy!

My sister’s face was so out of control her husband asked her if it would go back to normal afterwards. My sister and I have a theory that’s it is worse when pregnant with a girl. We haven’t guessed wrong yet.

Mine nose was definitely bigger during pregnancy. I assure you it will go down once you give birth 🙂

Yes, mine was but is back to normal. My cousin had it happen to her. She said your nose grows if you are having a girl, but I had a boy.

When I look at my pregnant photos I cannot believe how swelled up my whole face looks. Fortunately all returned to normal 🙂

Thanks ladies! I feel a bit better knowing it will hopefully go back to normal later on.
@Mrs.RDV: I’m having a boy too – I don’t believe in any of the old wives tales because I have a lot of the so called symptoms that you’re supposed to have when pregnant with a girl. Especially the acne – mine has been horrible!

I’ve never heard of those & I talk to pregnant women every single day at work. However I could totally see how that might happen. Everything gets bigger!! Lol I’m sure it’ll go back down.

@Blondee: I’ve heard of the acne and getting bigger feet, but never a bigger nose. Eep, I hope that doesn’t happen.

I’ve heard that. When I announced that I was pregnant at work someone said something along the lines of “Oh, I already knew. Pregnant women’s noses always gets bigger.” That was at 12 weeks and my nose had not then and hasn’t now at 20 weeks got bigger thankyouverymuch!!
But it’s good to hear it from other people, I just thought she was crazy.
