Hello mustache my old friend

Scene: E has just come home from work. Baby Evan is napping, I’m on the couch watching TV and interneting.

E: Stares at me really weird, tipping his head and squinting.

Me: What? Do I have something on my face?

E: Yes. Maybe? It looks like you have dirt. On your…face. Above your lip.


E: You have a….mustache?

Me: Don’t you remember? This happened last time I was pregnant too. It’s called melasma.

E: AHAHAHA. You have a mustache. I mean, um, I think it’s sexy. Yes, sexy.

(The good news is I’m pretty sure it faded after a few weeks last time, since I certainly can’t see it in my photos from 4 or 5 months in. But it is definitely time to buckle down with the SPF60. Effing mustache.)

    I get the exact same thing! Though, in addition to the mustache, I also got it under and around my eyes…circling the under-eye bags and it didn’t fade until I gave birth. WTH?
    Maybe I’m part raccoon…

    I don’t know which is worse…what you are experiencing or the fact that this pregnancy has me growing an actual mustache…

    Ahhh the joys of pregnancy :)

    That is hot.

    I have a mustache anyway. Thank you, Epicare.

    Oh my goodness, woman I know exactly what you are talking about. I started waxing it, even though it wasn’t hair. The waxing helps exfoliate the area and makes it less noticeable. Good luck!

    and I thought PUPPPS were bad! I feel your pain and I’m thankful I don’t have to go through it anymore. On the upside, you are almost there!
