oily face

Hey girls! Im 38w1d and this morning i woke up and my face is extremely oily :( its not normal for me considering most of the time i am battling dry skin! Is this any sign of labor or maybe just my hormones? I just found it super odd

Hormones sadly. I can't wait to deliver and get them back to somewhat normal LOL.

Me too girl! I had a feeling hormones is the culprit! Ahhh if its not one thing its another! I literally thanked my mom for being pregnant with me the other day! Its so much more work than i imagined!

This is my second pregnancy, I'm 31 weeks, I haven't had more than the normal oil but when i was preg with my first, I had terrible oil and broke out ssooo bad on my face, back, and some on my chest. With this one I've thanked god I haven't broke out anymore than normal and none on my back and chest. I think its because of taking my prenatals because I really didn't take any with ny first because they would make me choke and sick. Bit I found these gummy ones that I love and eat em everyday.

It can have to do with what you eat too. My fiance and I ate a bunch of fudgecicles and the next day our faces were so greasy and broken out. A lot of things can trigger it.

I actually had ice cream yesterday but i havent had a problem with it at all and like Boy24 said it was horrible and like a slip n slide! Im also having a baby boy! So who knows maybe its a preggers with a boy thing but never in my life has my face been that oily! Im also feeling extra sweaty today (sorry i know thats tmi) and extra moody :( im overall a very happy preggy girl but today has been something else!
