  5. Need more options in the voting With my first (Girl) skin was really good - soft and clean in the very first weeks, then got progressively worse through the pregnancy and in the end also had pigmentation, which has never gone away. However second pregnancy (boy) pigmentation flared up in the very first weeks, then acne and pigmentation progressively got better until almost gone by the end of the pregnancy (unfortunately hasn’t lasted). However as a side note my second pregnancy was high risk
