Hi you guys, 

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

from the beginning on of my pregnancy I have been ordering a couple of belly oils and creams to prevent stretch marks. I used them every night from the moment I was showing until the very last day and I found some favorites and some I really didn´t like at all.

I haven´t gotten a single stretch mark on my tummy so whether it is genetic (this always helps a lot in all stages of life) or supporting your ever stretching skin with the hydration it needs helps your skin to grow to its limit without tearing.

Body Oils in Review

BiOil

BiOil had been the first brand I tried in terms of preventing stretch marks. 

Burt´s Bees Mama Bee Body Oil

This has been by far my favorite. The scent is amazing – the lemony smells makes it super fresh. The bottle lasts about two months and made my skin super soft. After I found this one and it was empty I ordered another bottle cause I loved it so much. 

Burt´s Bees Mama Bee Body Butter

As much as I liked the Body Oils from their brand the Body Butter really smelled awful. It also had a super weird consistence. It was super thick and so not great to spread evenly over the bump. I am also not sure if it wasn´t expired already cause off all of this. Would not recommend it at all. I practically tossed it brand new. 

Burt´s Bees Baby Bee Oil

I ordered this by mistake as I wanted a back-up of the Mama Bee Body Oil and ended up using it on my belly. It has a dry oil formula which is wonderful as it gets soaked it almost immediately and you can get dressed right after without having stains anywhere. Going to definitely get another one for my baby girl as this is liquid gold for dry spots.

Rituals Stretchmark Tummy Cream

This was actually a gift of a very sweet friend. I have been using Ritual products in my daily routine for years but never noticed that they also offer mum and baby products. The body butter is more on the light side which I don´t mind at all cause it is great to use in the mornigns or during the day when the bump gets itchy and believe me it will at some point.

If you are searching for a good value I would recommend the Burt´s Bees Baby Oil. You can use it for yourself and the baby and it also lasts a long time. Also if you don´t like any scented body procuts this is the one to go.

I can´t believe I am sitting here writting my third trimester post which means my pregnancy is over and we have our sweet baby girl home with us. I have to admit the last trimester and especially the last 6 weeks felt endless. I was counting down the days but somehow they didn´t get less and I was stuck on waiting until she wanted to arrive in this world. 

My feelings

I have felt a lot of ups and downs followed by crying during my third trimester. With the madness of the Coronavirus approaching I was terrified that I had to give birth alone cause husbands would be banned from the delivery room. Luckily it did not came this far although he had to leave after I was brought to my room and could only visit for one hour a day but I only had two days in the hospital so it was okay with me, sad but okay.

My aversions

Haven´t had any aversions in my third trimester.

My cravings

Apples. Every day I am craving apples. I haven´t eaten apples in forever and in fact never liked them. I am also a little allergic to apples (my throat scratches and my lips start to swell) but that had gone as well. I am really curious if it comes back now that the baby is here.

My pregnancy symptoms

I haven´t gotten much more pregnancy sypmtoms other than my gestational diabetes, heart burn and severe rib pain. The bump has gotten so big I don´t find a lot to wear anymore which makes me really sad a lot of days I have to get dressed. Even my maternity pieces are getting pretty tight around the bump. Also sleeping has been really dreaded over here. I have so much pain going on in my hips after lying to long on one side. This is really bad cause I have all the comfortable blankets and pillows but can´t find a comfortable pose. 

What I am looking forward now

Staying home and finding a schedule that works for us for our new everyday life. Days fly by with a newborn. Also I can´t wait till people are allowed to visit again cause of course I want to share our little cutie with our relatives and friends.

I am going to share my birth story within the next weeks but I still have some prepared posts I wanted to share.

Happy Thursday you guys, 

I am breaking my blog leave today to introduce our baby girl to you. I am so happy that she is finally here. 

Her name is Emilia and she came into this world on the 27th of March at 08:19 in the morning. She has dark blonde soft hair and weighed 3.260 gramms at a lenght of 50 cm. We were a little surprised at how small she was cause our doctor told us that she is going to be a big baby. 

I was in labor for about 12 hours but more on that later. She came exactly one week early and I am really really glad about that with all the Corona craziness happening and the super strict ever changing hospital policies. 

We are absolutely smitten by her and love her more every day. She is the cutest baby we have ever seen and we can´t keep our eyes of her.

Make sure to check back tomorrow for a huge beauty blog post and if you want to see more of our cute baby check my Instagram stories.

Isn´t it great to finally wear lighter colors and all the pastels we got in our closet. When the sun is out my mood lifts immediately although I don´t like the summer heat but the temperatures at the moment are awesome and we couldn´s ask for more. With all the staying at home at least the weather is nice and we can sit outside.

I personally love to wear pastels for Spring. The shades point out the soft- and airyness of a new season we definitely need.

A minty green hue is not for everyone but pastel colors in general. Not every pastel hue is for every skin tone. It really is about trying out what you like with your hair and skintone but if you have found one you love stick with it as it will look beautiful.

Paired with white and a light denim shade or even all white, pastels make the perfect Spring companion.

Do you like pastels or do you prefer the brighter shades?
