Just like the title says... this is going to be a random post :)

First off, since I got of BCP and discovered I had PCOS, acne has been a major issue! I tended to break out more when I got my period. Now that I'm pregnant, this past week anyway, I look like I'm back in high school! Does anyone have ANY recommendations on face wash? I have always tried to be cautious since we were TTC but I am REALLY cautious now of the medicines or ingredients of things I put on my face.

So I bought a bella band. Well an off brand of that. I know that you guys have no clue what I look like, since I don't have any pics of me on here, but I am a fairly small girl. So right now I feel so big and bloated! A few of my pants can't even be buttoned! So, I broke down and bought one. I wore it yesterday. It was fine. I just felt like it is too early for me to be wearing it!!

Is it weird that I am having NO crazy symptoms? I am tired, boobs are definitely growing, face breaking out, hungry all the time... but I haven't been sick, no headaches, not too much cramping, no constipation. Guess I should be thankful for that!

Speaking of boobs... my coworker told me this yesterday, "Your lady lumps look enormous today! As long as they don't hurt :)" HAHAHA Seriously?! My lady lumps!

I go in for my first "normal" appoinment on Thursday. I am so nervous and excited! I just want to hear the heartbeat again! I just need that reassurance that everything is going well in there!

Alright, well I think that was random enough! Better get back to work :)


  1. Yea for not having too many bad symptoms. I would certainly be happy about that!

  2. I'm so glad that you're feeling good! I can't wait to hear about your appt!

  3. That is great that you aren't having much sickness. I love the lady lumps comment, too funny! Can't wait to hear about your 1st appt!

    You should look into Belli products, they are fantastic and have a full pregnancy line now. The products are not the cheapest but work very well and are safe!


  4. Re the acne, I too am being really cautious about what I use. I went to the dermatologist and she reccomended finacea followed by erythomycin. I ran this by my OB and she said both were fine and she actually wrote me the prescriptions, so you can probably just get it from your OB and save yourself a trip to the Derm. She also said Benzoyl Peroxide was ok, but Salicylic a big no no. I'm still being super cautious and avoid the benzoyl.
    So my routine is the same am and pm: use cetaphil/purpose gentle cleanser, use finacea, followed by erythomycin.
    Initially it broke me out even more but now 2 weeks of this regimen later, my skin is mostly clear save a few bumps still. The derm did say to give it a month or two...
    Btw, I'd also asked the derm about Belli skincare since so many pregnant women recc it, and she said she wouldn't use it if she were pregnant since it had some acid in it... So keep that in mind.
    About the lack of symptoms- count yourself lucky!! I've been mostly free myself as well, save some mild evening time nausea and gagging whenever I brush my teeth. Oh and the acne. I guess we're just lucky :)
