20th January 2023

A YOUNG WOMAN was left disappointed after hoping she would get that pregnancy glow with her first child.

But Jess Firth revealed it didn't quite go to plan and that it was a 'myth' after sharing her experience of pregnancy.

Taking to TikTok, Jess revealed that she was excited about her pregnancy glow-up but the reality was much different.

Many women have shared how pregnancy can make you look better – but it doesn't happen for everyone.

Period experts at Flo revealed: "When you're pregnant, your body shifts the production of certain hormones, such as progesterone, increasing the amount of oil that your skin produces. These hormonal shifts cause your skin to look brighter."

In one video, Jess revealed that she was huge for a start.

She said: "Being with someone 6ft 2 seemed cool until getting pregnant."

Jess then showed off her giant belly, revealing tall boyfriends equal tall babies.

In another post, the mum wrote: "Yay I'm pregnant I can't wait for that pregnancy glow."

"How wrong was I," she admitted.
