    I was the same, it has settled down somewhat now I'm 22 weeks. I do still have the occasional breakout.

    I just try to keep the area clean and put pimple cream on them.

    This happened to me but on my back and I too was embarrassed. I'm now 37 weeks and its all cleared up thankfully. Probably over the past few weeks. It will improve for you to I am sure

    Default Pimples during pregnancy

    Me too
    Iv always gotten them on my face especially before AF. (Even now that I'm 25) and I started getting them on my chest and a few on my back since starting to TTC... (Think it started early thanks to the hormone injections I was on for IUI) I'm 5+5w today and they seem to have lessened... For now.
    It totally sucks

    Me too, ever since I stopped taking the pill. Last pregnancy it was really really bad, just a miasma of ugly red pussy things all over my chin and making their way onto my back. This time it's actually cleared up pretty well with just the occasional pimple appearing. Hopefully it stays that way!

    Default Pimples during pregnancy

    I had very bad skin during all my pregnancies. My ob prescribed something or other, Eryacne I think? It was ok, but Clinique Anti-Blemish was better.
