I told my boss about my pregnancy today and he was happy for me. I just wanted to tell him this early so that in case i had to go off work for some days or to work from home, he is aware of the situation.
Still have to wait for 2 more weeks to reach my 14 week milestone and feel safe. Then i will plan to share with friends and family. Fingers Crossed!
I have gone through this phase when i was pregnant with Amy, but i still feel everything new and same excitement for every little detail is there…HAPPY!
I was pretty new to Clinique products before getting pregnant, i tried few samples and i loved them. My skin has always been a problem skin, sometimes pimples, and then their spots. So after trying the samples, i went to the store to buy the products and looking at the prices, the bigger sizes were the better ones. I bought Clinique even better lotion SPF 20 and Clinique even better clinical dark spot corrector.
I stopped using all the products when i came to know of my pregnancy, but after doing a lot of research on my own, then emailed the clinique people, and then finally asked my family physician. She said its fine to use them as they have controlled quantities of chemicals which are far from harming the baby.
After a break of around a month, i finally started using the products again.I will be reviewing these products in my coming posts.
I know it is really important to moisturize your body and that too during pregnancy, it becomes a must to-do. Due to the hormonal changes as well as due to the growing body, the skin becomes dry and fragile. To cope up with the changes, i know it is difficult but whatever we can do, we should do in order to avoid stretch marks and uneasiness. And the first step is to keep the skin moisturized as much as you can. Dryness can be anywhere on the body, its variance is different on different people. I had dry skin before getting pregnant and i know its going to be more dryness on my skin in the coming weeks. That makes me more eager to find and start using the pregnancy safe moisturizer as soon as i can.
So I did some research and thought of trying the shortlisted products that are safe to use during pregnancy. I mainly searched for products that are free of Retinoids, Salicylic acid, Soy. I will be using and reviewing each product for moisturizing the skin, particularly the body in the next few days.
