Blotchy face?

I've had dry skin, dry lips and spots already but have woken up this morning to a red blotchy face. Doesn't look like a rash and I haven't used or eaten anything out of the ordinary. Is this another one of pregnancy's delights? Am 23 weeks today.

I would presume so. I have red, hormonal flushing all over my cheeks since about 20 weeks. I'm extremely ruddy. I get it a little bit when I have my period usually but nothing like this!

I'm just hoping that it subsides when I get the baby out.

This delightful symptom just reared its blotchy head for me at 15 weeks. It's part of the surging oestrogen levels and the general vascularity of pregnancy, apparently. Concealer/ foundation don't touch it. Yay! angry

Yep. I had pink and purple streaks put through my hair recently (yay maternity leave!). My DSis' first comment - "oh look, your hair matches your face now...".
