The way I found out I was pregnant all began when I had no more energy and I fell asleep like a rock as soon as I got home.
Whenever I ate my stomach would act strange, I thought I had food poisoning.
My very honest mother had also pointed out that I was eating a little more than I should. She also told me that I was getting a bit chubby. In the picture below you can see two lines: one is from my bra and the other from my tights. This was the beginning of gaining fat, water and a growing baby.
Like every pregnant woman, my mind and body is changing rapidly.
Honestly I have never felt so exhausted in my life.
Pregnancy feels like a treadmill never ending treadmill.
Luckily, my mind is sharp but I always get headaches.
My hair is silky but my scalp is dry and flaky.
My skin feels very dry and stretch marks are slowly appearing.
I feel anything but beautiful.
Don't get me wrong, this is the best moment in my life.
Like Sheryl Crow, I feel like a woman.
I've never felt like more woman.
It doesn't make sense in the English language but to me it does.
Lately it's been very difficult for me to feel sexy.
Sometimes I feel like a slob, but I know those are just the hormones and....
When it comes to beauty products....
Finally, my favorite product ever is
St. Ives "Blemish Control" Apricot Scrub
It's been helping get rid of my black heads, dead, dry skin and minimized my pores.
The scrub is oil free which is good even though I have combination skin I try to avoid applying products with oil as this could lead to excessive amount of oil. It's like applying oil onto oil, on top of oil, above oil, and then your natural sweaty oil = Not good. Always check if a product has oil. Dermatologist recommended product, speak with your dermatologist before purchase/use.
I have one more product that I would like to share.
As I have mentioned before I don't like applying excessive oil on my skin.
However, there is a product called
Bio-Oil that is great for dry dehydrated skin, uneven skin tone, etc....
I use this product on my face, hands, belly and feet, two or three times a day every other day.
