Pregnancy Chat: Skincare, Drinks, Wardrobe, Rest, and Exercise

In today's pregnancy chat, I discuss the skincare I'm using, the drinks I'm enjoying, my maternity wardrobe, and how to deal with fatigue and exercise when expecting.

For skincare, I have been using Belli Beauty, which is a natural skincare line for pregnant women that is approved by both OBGYNs and dermatologists. The four skincare products I discuss in the video are Healthy Glow Facial Hydrator, Pre-Treatment Scrub, Anti-blemish Cleansing Facial Wash, Belli acne control spot treatment.

For those of you who are not pregnant, and are looking for natural skincare, try Pellu Beauty (formerly Nudu). Also, the natural SPF line I mentioned in the video is MyChelle.

The primary drink during pregnancy should, of course, be water. And I am trying to drink more water than I normally do to stay hydrated. As for special drinks, I have been enjoying one small coffee every morning (I usually make it iced). If I want an additional coffee or tea during the day, I drink Teeccino vanilla nut herbal coffee. I love the taste of this rich drink. Teeccino does contain chicory, so please ask your doctor if it is safe for you to use during pregnancy.

I will do a maternity ten-item wardrobe video in the future, but until then, I have been enjoying my returning maternity dresses from Seraphine, mixed with new maternity pieces from zulily. In this video, I'm wearing one of the Seraphine dresses.

For exercise, I have been jumping on my rebounder, although I will have to give it up soon as I go further into my 2nd trimester. I am going to miss my rebounder! I also walk on a regular basis and count housework as exercise :)

Comment of the Week
On Monday's faux flowers video, Silver Melody writes, "Hi Jennifer, Your faux flowers are really lovely. Another option is a faceted cut glass or crystal vase...the facets blur the stems very nicely. You can also add small clear glass stones to keep the flowers in place and add more light reflection. My personal favourite is a beautiful ceramic vase that hides everything underneath and lets you support the flowers with whatever means to get the best arrangement, and to my eye, the most aesthetic appealing option for real or faux arrangements."

That's a great suggestion, Silver Melody. Thank you for your great tips!

I'll see you on Monday for a special Teatime with Jennifer: Royal Wedding Edition! In the meantime, I'd love to know your thoughts on the pregnancy topics discussed in today's video. Your comment could be chosen as comment of the week. See you Monday!

Hi, Jennifer! I visit your blog from time to time and enjoy it very much. I am a "woman of a certain age" that enjoys it when younger women like you find joy in the simpler (and more important) things in life like their children, their marriages, and making their homes places of order and tranquility. I admire your focus on making the life you have the best you possibly can and by not complaining about what you don't have, counting your blessings and sharing that positivity with others. Thank you for being a great role model for women and I hope that all goes well as you look forward to the arrival of your next baby.

Hello Jennifer,

Thanks for your video. It's been 10 years since I was pregnant; so I don't have a great deal to contribute on that topic, but you caught my attention when said that "it's important to ask for help and to delegate." I believe these are important to do even when you are not pregnant. When you are a mother at any stage, you are responsible for so many things. Chances are it's not just the children but also the dogs, the house, the bills, the yard, etc..
You also mentioned that you usually like to be very busy from morning until night. This made me, once again, wonder about your energy type in the Live Your Truth system. I think energy types also come into play when asking for and receiving support. Chances are your family members will have a different energy type than you, and this will play into how you each understand Support. For me as a type 4 woman, receiving support means the other person is paying attention to detail. However, (and here is a big clue as to the turbulence I described a few days ago) my husband, being of a different energy type, has a different understanding of being supportive! Trouble ensues! I hope this information will be helpful to you and to others now and at all stages of life!

Jennifer, please tell me the name of the white piece of clothing you are wearing underneath your blouse to cover your décolleté. I am needing to purchase this for a wrap dress of mine that is too low. I so enjoy your videos! By the way, on the iced passion tea you mentioned? My doctor tells me that whilst pregnant, you don’t want to consume anything with licorice root in it. That’s my two cents for the day. You look fabulous as always, and I look forward to the wardrobe video upcoming.
