Hi there. Am happy you have found a cream that gives you results. Understand your situation being married & pregnant. Please consider using a good sunscreen (Galderma or Bioderma has good quality products) on your face & apply as per your dermatologists' instructions. Also use aloevera cream on your face & nipples & thighs & abdomen & after bathing . It can act as both a moisturizer & an emollient & help limit the stretch marks etc that develop during pregnancy :) take care & good luck during your pregnancy. Cheers.
