Day 35, Pregnancy Myths

If your skin glows then you are carrying a boy and if your skin is dull then you are carrying a girl.


This is absolutely untrue. The gender of the baby has got nothing to do with amount of glow on a pregnant woman’s face.  When a woman is pregnant, the body produces 50 percent more blood. This causes an increase in blood circulation in the pregnant mum’s body thus giving her a brighter appearance.

During this phase a pregnant woman’s body produces a lot of hormones as well. This means that even your oil glands are working overtime thus making your face appear oiler and thus shinier. Hence people say that when a woman is pregnant she has a glow on her face.
