Why do pregnant women glow?

I get told daily that I am "glowing". Makes me wonder if people say that because they mean it or if they think they are supposed to. Don't get me wrong, I do not take it as a bad thing. I decided to do some research and here is what I came up with...

Your skin does take on a glow - and there is a physiological explanation for it. As your blood volume increases throughout your pregnancy, superficial blood vessels carry more blood which can be seen on your face. In addition, your oil glands are secreting more, so you naturally have a glow without any additional exertion.

Hmm, I'm still not sure I buy it, but people have been referring to pregnant woman as glowing for ages. Who am I to argue.

  1. Glowing, Beaming, Truly Beautiful and sophisticated. I told you from day one, pregnancy sure looks good on you! Your hair even has a shine to it. Flawless skin and the signs of a well loved mom, wife and friend.

    And No, Ish didn't pay me to say any of this :)

    Love ya girl.

    If and when people tell you that you're glowing, and dote on you and tell you how gor-juss you are---- believe them and don't let them touch your belly though--I don't like when people (strangers) touch a pregnant woman's belly. Ok, let me stop. :)

    The desire to be pregnant can throw us into an exciting adventure filled with hopes and plans for upcoming parenthood. But for women who undergo tubal ligation, more commonly known as having your "tubes tied," the desire to become pregnant can mean opening a door that was once permanently closed.
