Actully YES, acne happens because of all the hormonal changes in your body when you are pregnant.

Yes, I have never had acne and it was very rare for me to get even 1 pimple but from 5 weeks pregnant to around 11 weeks my face broke out terribly, but now it's all clear again. Once your body gets used to the hormones racing around, it should settle down.

Ditto! Lots of acne near my chin and jaw line. Never had acne before until I was preganant, that was one of my first signs of pregancy.

It can, yes. Mine hasn't (so far), it's actually cleared up. But acne during pregnancy is common.

Although acne is more predominant in adolescence and during pregnancy (hormonal acne), adult acne is also very common. Statistics for acne in adults shows that over 60% of adults over the age of twenty suffer from acne flare-ups at least once. This phenomenon is referred to as adult acne

Many women get acne on their breasts because that area can sweat more than other areas. Acne can also be a sign of pregnancy because of hormonal changes.
