Heather Rae Young is making headway with her not-so-easy pregnancy journey, and as fans might expect, she steadily updates her social media fans about the experience. In a new Instagram post, the excited soon-to-be mama eagerly dished helpful things that have worked amid the journey while also showing off her pregnancy glow in an attached clip.
Heather Rae Young Says Daily Movement Makes Her Feel Normal
Young is loving every moment of having a “growing boy” in her belly, and she penned so in the post’s caption, adding a few things that have assisted with her progress. She shared, “Daily movement has been so important and almost necessary for me. It helps me feel “normal” even if I do a quick little 20-30 minute workout. Movement makes me feel better, always.”
Another thing that works for her is “peppermint oil,” which she uses for her headaches or whenever she wants to relax. In addition, good, healthy food plays a significant role in her progress, alongside some pregnancy-safe products. The brilliant realtor further penned, “I’m loving BIG meals that have tons of fresh veggies, protein, fats, and healthy grains to fuel me and my growing boy.” Her message continued and read,
“And other products that have been working for me are: my vegan protein powder from @tru_supplements (pregnancy safe), bump gloss, and bump oils/balms with natural ingredients.”
Although Young has been getting “really bad pregnancy rosacea,” her “ice roller” has been her savior. She admitted so, adding a question to mothers and pregnant women about what worked for them amid their pregnancy journey. Alongside the detailed message, she posted a video of herself looking as radiant as ever with a fashionable outfit comprising cheetah-patterned high-waisted slacks and a sleeveless turtleneck blouse.

In the video, the former Playboy Playmate of the Month could be seen on a vehicle, swinging one leg as she went on and got off the well-furnished van.
While pregnancy may suit her very well, it also comes with a few difficulties she is admittedly not used to, which she voiced to her fans on social media. As The Blast reported, Young mentioned having some surprising “red blotches and bumps” on her face and having an altered hormonal balance as she spent most of her days “crying for no reason.”
She planned to get a facial and consult the doctor about her thyroid being “slow” and also needed to be assured everything was okay. Her revelation came shortly after she was advised not to travel to Cabo with her husband, Tarek El Moussa, who she missed throughout the getaway period.
Naturally, the 34-year-old beauty opened up about how lonely she felt without El Moussa via a previous Instagram post featuring multiple snaps of her in his loving arms and a sweet message. She confessed that she missed her best friend while he was away with the kids and their families. So, she decided to go through pictures she loved of the couple together.
According to her, the vacation period was the longest they had been apart, causing her to possibly get a “little separation anxiety” and leading to her asking fans to help with distractions.
The “Selling Sunset” Star’s Tasking Pregnancy Changes With Supportive Husband
While Young was getting used to her ever-changing pregnant body, she spoke on the transformations she experienced in a sit-down with PEOPLE while also expressing gratitude to her supportive family. The Blast reported that she admitted to not being used to specific changes, including her growing belly. It was undoubtedly a complicated change as most of her clothes, including bras and jeans, could not fit her. She explained:
“I went from being very tiny to just seeing my body change and getting used to those changes. And [Tarek’s] just so positive every day, telling me how beautiful my body is.”
The onscreen star’s doting partner made her feel “so beautiful and special” even with the transformation, and he encouraged her to take pleasure in that period in her life. Her friends also advised her to be joyful about the pregnancy time and make the most of it since her altering body was not something she could control.
