2nd Trimester Pregnancy Vlog! Body Image, Workouts, & Embarrassing MomentsBy Katrina Scott on
Hey loves! Thank you so much for all your advice, support, and love during my pregnancy so far. It’s incredible to know we’re on this journey together and I can always turn to my TIU mamas and mamas-to-be! Every stage and every change is SO beautiful and I’m grateful we can experience it as a community. 💗
Today I’m so excited to share this new vlog I filmed all about my second trimester! (Check out my first trimester vlog too if ya missed it!) I’m answering all your questions about my pregnancy workouts and how they’ve changed, my cravings, body image and positivity, my fave outfits right now, pregnancy-safe beauty products and skincare tips, embarrassing moments, and how I’m feeling. Anyone else constantly out of breath? haha Seriously I’m out of breath just sitting here typing! 😂

Love you girls!

Last weekend I had my baby shower and revealed our baby girl’s name!!! Brian and I actually named her 15 years ago! We said if we had a daughter one day, we’d name her after our grandmas...and now Isabelle Margaret is on her way! ✨
This painting is by my grandma Isabelle and the shell is the actual shell she painted <3 I've been saving it forever in hopes to have a little girl some day!
My Second Trimester Workouts
In my first trimester, I focused on walking + daily toning moves in the TIU App when I could and giving my body the rest it needed. This trimester, I’ve been feeling more energized and stronger so I’ve been working out longer and my walks are getting brisker. I’ll go on walks with Karena and she’s like, “girl you’re moving fast!”
I’m not doing HIIT but the weight training workouts and Daily Moves in Studio Tone It Up have felt amazing for me. And the new pregnancy channel in your Studio Tone It Up app is everythingggg.
Download your app here! You're going to LOVE all the workouts!
Android babes, we’re perfecting your channel for you! Just search “prenatal” in the On Demand section and all the workouts will pop up.
My Go-To Smoothie
I've been craving Piña Coladas this summer... can ya blame me!? So I've been having this:
- 1 handful frozen pineapple
- 1 handful frozen sliced banana
- 1 cup vanilla almond milk (coconut milk is good here too!)
- 1 Tbs coconut shavings
- 1 scoop vanilla organic Tone It Up Protein
- Blend & Enjoy mama!
*** A lot of you ask if Tone It Up protein is okay to have during pregnancy! I've been having it almost every day! I love and trust our ingredients and I showed my doctor the few ingredients that we use, and she said they're great. Remember, not all protein powders are created equal, so best thing to do is bring your tub to your doctor! Tone It Up Protein is clean and the ingredients are made from plant-based, whole foods (pumpkin and pea)- so I personally feel great having it. Just as always, check with your doc!
Cravings…Gimme Allllll The Ice Cream!
Ice cream, ice cream, and more ice cream! Haha. I've been loving coconut ice cream-- and when Brian and I go out, we'll go on ice cream dates. When I can't eat ice cream, I've been having yogurt parfaits and coconut yogurt smoothies! 🍨I wrote a whole post on pregnancy cravings, what they mean, and healthy recipes for you here!
What else am I eating?
I'm following the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan, but just upping my portions and when I'm hungry~ I'm eating :) I'm incorporating a lot of healthy fats too in avocado, trail mix, nut butters, coconut, and oils. I've been eating a ton of fruit too! Gimme all the grapes and watermelon!
My Skincare and Makeup Faves right now!
- Stretchmark oils~ I've been trying a few! I love Era, but it's sold out! I also love the Mama Mio Oil and Lotions~ it smells ahhmazing and feels super soft
- I use this Vitamin C serum
- You girls know I love the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Eye Patches!
- I also love the PTR cloud lotion~ it feels amazing
- Because of my Melasma, I've been extra careful and I wear 50 SPF every day! I use this organic 50 by Coola
- And this lip balm that has SPF
For make up, I've been obsessed with the below:
- Tarte Foundation
- Tarte Blush
- I always use a little of the Make Up Forever 1c Lip Liner before gloss
- Sugar Nude lip color~ it's the perfect shade of peach!
I’ve actually been getting a lot of my clothes from Forever 21! I order cute flowy dresses and rompers online and just size up so I will be able to fit into them as my bump grows! The trick is to search for exactly what you're looking for, since there's so much. I'll search rompers, knit dresses, and maxi dresses. I also ordered some great basics from nakedwardrobe.com which has some cute knit dresses that are higher quality and stretch.
For workout clothes, Avocado is still my fave I size up or they have maternity pants. I also love the Lululemon align pants and I've sized up a couple times throughout my pregnancy! Plus I know I can wear them after pregnancy :)
Oh! And this bra has been the best thing I ever purchased! It's Calvin Klein from Urban, and I'm so happy I got it, because I wear it allll the time!
I also love this Calvin Klein triangle bra (I'm wearing it in the pic above!)
Also... the Calvin pants!
