When I became pregnant I quickly realized there are tons of no no’s when it comes to products! Here’s a link to webpage that really helped me when shopping for pregnancy friendly products/ingredients….
Above are some of the Products I am currently using during my pregnancy.

The belly band has been a great purchase for me so far! I havent been able to button my pants for almost two months! This inexpensive band helps keep them up and lets you continue to wear your normal jeans.
As for face wash i’ve been using good old fashioned Cetaphil (my dermatologist recommended it to me when I first found out I was pregnant) Its basic and safe! I also finally jumped on the MIA by clarasonic bandwagon! I LOVE this brush and have to say my skin feels super soft after I use it. When I get random break outs that wont go away, I put a little dab of Cortaid on it. It contains hydrocortisone which will dry that baby out. Also hear great things about Mario Badescu products (particularly the drying lotion)
Around 22 weeks I started having a bit of back pain and not sleeping as great. I saw this wedge pillow and am wondering if it will help? As for stretch marks I hear it’s mostly genetics but Im lathering up daily with creams anyway! I have been using Palmers coco butter (super cheap from Target) and its good! I’ve also heard great things about Mustela products and Bio Oil. I may be giving those a try when I run out of Palmers!
If you follow the Honeybee on FB you know I had my LOVELY glucose test this morning. My doctor gave me the Glucola drink on my last visit to take home. I drank it an hour before my appointment and when I showed up we went right in and they took blood. It honestly wasn’t bad at all! The orange drink was actually pretty tasty! (very sugary obviously).
On a side note I have to say shopping for my baby girl has been so fun! Were going to really start tackling the “to get list” next month and I cant wait to get everything organized! I would LOVE to hear what things you girls registered for or products that you liked!!
