Pregnancy Week By Week The Ultimate Check List

During my first pregnancy I really struggled to find the right information. You know that saying too many cooks spoil the broth? Well it’s the same thing when it comes to your pregnancy. Too much information, especially when it’s not based on science and facts, can confuse you and leave you wondering what you need to do next. Thankfully, my wise mother, along with a few great books, gave me the best pregnancy advice ever! And today, I’m going to share it with you!

Planning Is Everything

As your pregnancy progresses week by week, you’re going to need to make a plan. And not just any plan, but a detailed, step by step plan. The intimate details of your plan will decide how easy or difficult your pregnancy is going to be. Some of the most important things are choosing a doctor and hospital, finding the right prenatal testing center, signing up for birthing classes and breastfeeding classes. You can also think about baby names and any parenting related subjects with your partner.

You Need To Eat Right

It’s something that should go without saying but if you want your pregnancy to go smoothly, you need to get your nutrition right. Your health and the health of your baby depend on it which is why I’m shocked that more women don’t take this seriously.

Before I tell you what I ate, let me stress that you should check with your doctor to see what foods will suit you.

Here’s what my doctor suggested I eat. Dairy products like milk and cheese are rich in protein. They are also good sources of zinc and calcium.

Green leafy vegetables made up a majority of my diet. I ate a lot of broccoli, spinach, cabbage and a lot more. These vegetables are rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals.

I like chicken and when I was pregnant I ate a lot of it! It was the tastiest way for me to get my requirement of lean protein. You can also get protein from beans, peas, and cottage cheese.

Fruits:

If you like avocados then I have good news for you. They are rich in good fat, potassium and folate. And they came highly recommended from my doctor.

Fruits like berries also make a great snack. They are nutritious, contain very few calories and are loaded with antioxidants.

Prepare For Beyond The Pregnancy

Because pregnancy is such a big event, it can become easy to forget what’s coming next. Just before I went into labour, me and my partner packed our freezer with food that could easily be heated up whenever we needed. There was enough stock for at least a few weeks. We also stocked up on diapers and some basic medication meaning neither one of us would have to leave the house for sometime.

So, there you have it, the 3 best pregnancy tips I got. I really hope these three simple tips will help you out as much as it helped me!

Indian women are said to have naturally beautiful skin. With skin care becoming the new rage in the market, every woman wants her skin to look flawless.

This is because most of the skin products give only an external treatment that does not treat you from inside.

Few of the reasons for skin damage are pollution, pigmentation and dehydration. There are numerous products in the market catering to these skin problems and women mostly find themselves trying out so many face creams, face masks, serums etc and end up being disappointed.

With a lot of chemicals applied on the skin, we unknowingly speed up the aging process without allowing our skin to breathe.

No more “trying” new products to know what suits your skin.

SkinKraft Review

SkinKraft Review

I never thought trying customized skin care would help me put an end to my acne..

I’ve been literally stuck with acne since I was a teenager. After trying multiple products which failed to reduce my acne, I thought there’s absolutely nothing that can take care of my acne anymore.

But, I was wrong, just when I thought of giving up, my aunt told me about SkinKraft’s customized skin care regimen, and how it reduced my cousin’s acne, and blemishes in just 2 months!

Even though I was a bit doubtful whether these products would work on my skin and reduce my acne, I still wanted to give it a try by answering their questionnaire. SkinKraft’s questionnaire determines your skin type and your specific skin concern in just 5 minutes. After which it gives you a detailed report on your skin’s health, which I think is extremely helpful. As it helped me understand what my skin’s current health is, and what my skin needs to get the best results.

I thought to give the recommended regimen ago and ordered the trial pack to see whether it would work on my skin.

The Box & Packaging

The Box & Packaging

Finally, my regimen arrived after 5 days, and boy was I excited! I really liked the packaging and my box’s color.

All in all, the packaging deserves full marks. I’m a DIY enthusiast, and I can definitely reuse this box to store some of my junk jewelry. They also gave me my usage instructions, so I know how and when I should use my products.

so I know how and when I should use my products.

Package Rating – 5 / 5

Effectiveness – What I Noticed After Using My Regimen

I started noticing a difference in the way my skin looked and felt and the best part is that my acne had reduced drastically.

In just the first week of using my regimen, I noticed that my pores were clean and clear of any dirt and other particles that were clogging my pores.

The second week I was really surprised to see my pores shrinking, and noticed that day by day my skin was becoming clear, soft and bump free.

After one month, my family and friends also started noticing a difference in my skin, which told me that my regimen was the right choice for my skin. My skin actually feels clean, fresh and pimple free after a long time and I just can’t get over how good it feels to touch my face again without any bumps.

SkinKraft has literally changed my skin’s texture, appearance and my confidence to say the least.

I’ve already recommended SkinKraft to my friends and colleagues so they can understand how easy daily skin care could be with customized skin care.

What I Like About My Skinkraft Regimen

  • My regimen works perfectly on my oily skin and acne.
  • They also suggest, when I need to change or stop using any of my products.
  • Usage instructions are easy to understand and guide me on how, and when I should use my products to get the results I want.

 

What I Didn’t Like About My SkinKraft Regimen

I really like my regimen, but I would like it if they could make the prices a bit more pocket-friendly, as everyone won’t be able to afford a SkinKraft regimen. But, I guess since its customized just for my skin, and works better than any product I’ve used before, the pricing really doesn’t matter.

Helpful Follow Ups

SkinKraft also follows up with you from week 1 to know my feedback on my regimen and my products, and if I experienced any issues during usage. This definitely gave me a sense of comfort and safety because, if I had any problems with my products, I can just give my feedback and SkinKraft will recommend what I should do next.

I just completed my 1st month of using SkinKraft, and my follow up says that I should continue using my acne active until my skin is completely clear.

SkinKraft Customized Skin Care –  4.5 / 5

After using the products for 1 month, I would give SkinKraft’s products and my regimen a 4.5 out of 5, because it’s just perfect for my skin type, helps me fight acne and gentle on my skin at the same time, and I can’t wait to see the full effect of my skin regimen.

You can also get your very own customized skin care regimen, by visiting www.skinkraft.com. I’m so satisfied with the results from my trial pack, that I’m actually going to buy a 3-month subscription plan to see how effectively SkinKraft’s products can work on my skin.
