Whitney Port is staying positive amid the first trimester of her pregnancy.

While speaking with PEOPLE about the launch of her holiday gift guide with Amazon Lifestyle, the 36-year-old opened up about her pregnancy, sharing that she and husband Tim Rosenman are "staying hopeful" after previously announcing that this is "likely another unhealthy pregnancy."

"It's so hard for me to even accept a 'congratulations' just because I'm still so early in the game," Port admits. "I'm still in my first trimester, which I know is something that not a lot of people really share this early on."

"Everything is still touch and go week by week as women know when they're going through pregnancy. The first trimester, really anything can happen. But things seem to be moving along and progressing so we're staying hopeful," says Port, who also shares 4-year-old son Sonny Sanford with Rosenman.

The Hills: New Beginnings star announced in a YouTube video on Nov. 3 that she is pregnant, expecting another child with Rosenman. She tearfully explained that "everything was looking good up until yesterday," sharing that a recent doctor's visit has the couple "scared" for the health of their baby on the way after they previously experienced two miscarriages and a chemical pregnancy.

In the same video, Port gave a positive update a few days later, noting that the doctor "actually saw an embryo and a heartbeat, which is something that we were not expecting." They asked fans to "keep your fingers crossed" for them as they continue to provide updates.

She previously revealed in July 2019 that she and Rosenman suffered a miscarriage, before revealing earlier this year in January that they suffered another pregnancy loss.

Port tells PEOPLE that her current focus is on her body and mental health and she's trying to "take the pressure off [herself] to be hyper-productive and not feel guilty about it."

One thing the fashion designer says she utilizes to "get things done quickly, easily and efficiently" is shopping on Amazon Lifestyle, where she recently launched her own holiday gift guide.

Port's guide features a plethora of trending products across a variety of categories, which she says is perfect for "every member of [her] family."

"I have a really big family and a really big shopping list and a lot of people I work with so I feel like I could really check off all the boxes and get everybody something in one place," she says.

"Whoever you are, there's always something easy at your fingertips, and I feel like with so many people being highly stressed with everything else that's going on, it's just great to be able to turn to a company like Amazon that you know you can rely on and that has really amazing products that you may not even know exist."
