This weeks Q/A:

Did you find anything that helps get rid of acne? I see a facialist every 4 weeks to help extract my skin and I use natural products from Citrine that I swear by. I actually did a YouTube video recently with the owner to explain in more detail about what is pregnancy safe for women. See video here.

Are you going to do a gender reveal party? We actually already did a gender reveal with family and we found out with everyone this time. So, when I do reveal… I’ll probably reveal that.

How do you deal with anxiety for a possible miscarriage? Honestly, I try not to think about it. I am a lot more lax this pregnancy, and I think after having such great reports from my doctor, it easing my mind.

What double stroller are you looking at buying? I actually haven’t looked a whole lot. Maybe I need to start doing this. Any suggestions?

Are you still working out? Ugh… no. Ask me in a month.

Go-to prenatal vitamins? I use the Nature Made Prenatal with DHA

Do you take medicine if you are sick? I don’t. If I ever become really ill, ill ask my doctor what is safe and go from there. I don’t get headaches and feel great most of the time… so I truthfully just haven’t had to ask yet.

Do you vaccinate? We do. Everything that is recommended by doctor for myself or baby, we do.

How often do you drink alcohol while pregnant? Ha that sounds funny reading it out loud. So, I have sips here and there and maybe half a glass on occasion but I wouldn’t say its any specific amount per week.

Are you having twins? Negative

Feel free to continue to send questions for next week.
