I wouldn't: I would discontinue the miracle worker cream, as it has retinol. It has poor absorption through the skin, but there is a small risk, and pregnancy is sometimes about reducing risks if there isn't a substantial benefit. The Bionic serum also contains a retinoid (vitamin A derivative). Again, poor absorption through skin, but it would reduce risk if you stop during pregnancy. Good luck to you!
