Do you have the glow of pregnancy?

I was told yesterday I had a glow, too, but I didn't feel glowing. However, we were having parent-teacher interviews, so I had my "dress-up" clothes on and must have looked the cute pregnant woman...but a glow, I'm not convinced. I've got lots of acne I cover up with makeup and I'm constantly blowing my nose these days, so I don't feel "glowing." — Sue

I have received numerous compliments about having a glow. Personally, I don't know what they are talking about. I feel so unattractive most of the time. — Crystal

A lady at work told me once that I was glowing. I think it was because I was happy that day and smiling a lot. But on the other hand, my hair is looking pretty good and so is my skin. I think the extra water and prenatal vitamins are helping out a lot. — Gisel

When I can be bothered to put a little moisturizer and mascara on and go out, people say to me "you look really well" or "you really are blooming now." I think they are just saying it to make me feel better though, because when I look in the mirror I really do look like crap! — Meg

With my daughter, I really did glow. I think it was because during my second trimester I felt so good (better than I ever had before) and I was so happy. I'm still waiting for this with this pregnancy. I am looking a bit better. The "green" look of the first trimester has left, and I'm not looking so old. — Stephanie

I think that if I am dressed nicely, freshly showered and feeling good, then I am glowing...if I am not any of these things, you can be sure the "glow" is just because my skin is oily from not having been washed. — Shannon

Nope, no glow here either. I'm just sick and exhausted all the time, and the best I've gotten from people is, "You don't look so green today." — Tricia

I am definitely not glowing. I'm so washed-out looking. I do have to say though that my skin has been much clearer than normal and I do have great pregnancy hair. Usually I have to wash it every day because it looks oily and limp. Now it's shiny and full looking. — Pam

I've noticed a constant flush in my cheeks, and I think when people say I'm glowing, that's why. — Lilladybug75

I, too, have had people tell me that I am glowing. In fact, a number of people have said it from the beginning of my pregnancy. I don't think I am glowing at all, but who knows. Actually, I had more people tell me that during my first trimester. Maybe it was all of the broken blood vessels on my face from throwing up. — Amy

I WANT TO GLOW! TELL ME HOW! I keep hearing/reading about this whole "glow" phenomena but it's just not happening with me. Maybe I need to tell more people I'm pregnant so they don't think that belly sticking out in front is a beer gut, and then the "glowing" compliments may begin? — Melita
