    Well I bought some Oil of Olay this weekend. The foam cleanser and moisterizer. I could not find the toner. Toner is what I love.
    I called my doc on Friday and the nurse said to stay away from Benzol Peroxide too. I hope I didn't cause any damage by using this stuff
    I didn't start using it again until like 2 months ago.

    I am sure you will be fine Lisa, think about the things even our moms did when they were preggo and we are all normal and fine!

      I bet baby will be fine! Christine is right! Plus think of the women that smoke and drink and don't take prenatal vitamins!

      No benzol peroxide either? I didn't know that!

        Yes, I think about all the crazy things they did when I do something I'm not suppose to do. Oh well....you live and learn!

          I didn't know about the benzol peroxide either, but that's what she said?

            I was going to buy Cetaphil today, I am going to have to double check the ingredients!

              I looked at Cetaphil this weekend and it is ok. I was going to buy it, but the only lotion I could find was a generic Cetaphil body lotion. I wasn't sure if I wanted to put that on my face.

                sorry, not preggers, but i am reading this thread to keep up with everyone....i've used cetaphil for the last 2 years and love it. it's very mild. i believe the soap also says that you can leave it on your face to use as a gentle moisturizer. hth!

I could take half the dose but I'm even scared to do that. Doc told me I could keep taking Allegra for my allergies but I stopped that too. Taking meds just scares me.
                  My doctor told me only Benadryl for allergies, NOTHING else was her exact words.

                  You guys should call mother risk when you have any questions about stuff like this. Its Canadian, but anyone can call and ask them. Here is the website The Hospital for Sick Children - Motherisk and the contact info is on there.

                  Cetaphil is okay, I called about that myself and so is Phisoderm (but I think that is only Canadian because I could not find it when I was in the states) and Proactive is bad, I read that a few places, but you can call them and ask them. You tell them the ingredients of things and they tell you if you can or can't use it and why. What in it is bad and what it can do. I have the book they put out as well and it was not until I read that book that I found out that Chamomile tea is really bad to drink while pregnant, I was drinking it because it has no caffiene. Turns out it can cause uterine contractions, who knew. So check out the site and call them with any questions, its long distance, but totally worth it.

                    I bought Cetaphil today because I don't think the Oil of Olay is working....or maybe it is and my face would be worse if I wasn't using it. We'll see!

                    I had to give in and buy Robitussin today because I have had a bad cough for 2 weeks. I know I can take Robitussin Original, but I guess they changed the labels, so I asked the pharmacist if I could take Robitussin DM for cough (not cough and cold). He looked in his computer and said it was okay, but to only use it when I HAD to. I haven't taken it yet, but I need to....

                    I live on Tylenol now. I suffer from migraines and have had 2 since getting pregnant. I took Tylenol when I got them....didn't work well, but I had to take something.

                    I have taken Benadryl twice, but that's it.

                    The only other thing I have taken is Immodium. I called the nurse and she said this was better than Kaopectate. I need to keep taking it because I have had stomach issues for something like 3 weeks now! It comes and goes though, so I shouldn't be too alarmed.

                    We have Phisoderm here, it was sitting next to the Cetaphil. I looked at the ingredients and they looked okay, but I decided to get the Cetaphil.
