Spots during pregnancy and gender

When I was pregnant with dd my skin was horrific - I was plagued with spots all over my face, chest and back. They started almost as soon as I got my bfp and we're my biggest pregnancy symptom. Now three months pregnant again and skin is totally clear. Just wondering whether this might be a sign of a boy this time. Would be delighted either way I should say! Did many people who had bad skin in pregnancy go on to have good skin with other pregnancies and was it indicative of gender?

I'm 38 weeks with a little boy and I've had the worst hormonal acne since 6 weeks. It was actually what made me take a test as I normally have pretty good skin. My sister has had one boy and one girl and had perfect skin both times. I think it's just old wives tales x

Yeah I had problem skin with my previous two boys but then they this time I was fine and was also very sick whereas I'd not really had nausea with the boys... im having a third boy! Haha every pregnancy is different I guess x
