Is oily skin a sign of early pregnancy?

Oily skin can result from hormone changes, but those can be part of PMS as well as early pregnancy. I always get oilier skin the week before my period. With my last pregnancy (which ended in MC at 9 weeks) my skin was SUPER oily. I didnt' think much about it until I realized I was pregnant. I didn't notice it that much in earlier pregnancies however, which is why it didn't tip me off earlier I suppose.
