 Post subject: pregnancy mask
PostPosted: Sat Feb 26, 2005 2:37 am 
I am in my 25 th week. so far I don't have any signs of changes on my face but I was reading that some women get them. scientifical explanation is that it is due to hormons - yet not everybody gets it.

folk explanation is that has to do with the sex of the baby and is associated with having a girl..

that sound of course hard to believe but anyway...

when one usually get the mask if one is to get it? and what is with this association with a baby's sex? sound like a joke but than again..

anybody can enlighten me here?

I've heard of the "pregnancy mask" before but don't know a lot about it. I don't think it has anything to do with the sex of the baby, but like you said, everything to do with hormones.
I've read that women of certain ethnic backgrounds are more prone to getting it, especially if you have darker features, eg. Hispanic women

I'm sure you can find out more about it if you do a search on google.

My sister got it but I don't know when, later in the preg. I think. She had a girl but I don't think that has anything to do with it, hormones does I'm sure. I have one of each and never got it. Like Nikki said just do a google search and you can read about it more there.
