The Truth About a Healthy Pregnancy

pregnancy is hard

Who knew growing a tiny human, could be so hard? πŸ˜₯
.
The last 19 weeks have been the hardest of my LIFE. Things have happened where I had zero control and that was a really hard reality to deal with mentally.
.
πŸ‘ŽWorst of all — The comparison game came out of nowhere. Something I wasn’t prepared for…”Why is she able to workout and eat well still and I’m over here crying, trying to lift my head off the toilet?” among some of the comments I fed myself.
.
Mentally, I know if it’s tough for me, it is tough for others too.
.
Guess what? It’s OK to feel that way! Seriously!
.
Hearing our little baby’s heartbeat and seeing them on the ultrasounds, confirms that every single weak moment, is so incredibly WORTH it…but it doesn’t mean we aren’t struggling a bit with all the changes. We have feelings too! I know it’s taboo to talk about the “hard” parts of this journey as it might seem we are being ungrateful, but I don’t think that’s right. We should be able to express our concerns, frustrations and fears — because I know if we don’t, it can lead to some serious self-defeating thoughts that can be so bad for us AND the baby!
.
This process is the BIGGEST and most rewarding journey, I’ve ever been or will go through, because it’s forcing me to be happy with myself internally.
.
At the end of my first trimester, I was struggling with the changes happening. With my serious morning (all day) sickness, I worked out way less and it “forced” me to eat a lot of carby foods, to settle my stomach. I’ve been able to snap out of it and came to a big realization: healthy and happy me = healthy baby. I had to remember bringing life into this world is a REASON to work on ME and commit to my health — and not an EXCUSE! I pulled myself together and have committed to getting a workout in at least 30 minutes a day, working on my mind at least 10 minutes a day and sticking to my clean, whole foods again and I feel SO much better! I want to help others do the same! πŸ’ž
.
I also want to help women see how STRONG they truly are! It’s amazing when to see what you’re truly capable of! Anyone can do this, with the help/support from others and myself as your free coach along the way, who’s going through the exact same things!
.
Let’s do this together and welcome every new adventure along the way: every new mark, struggle, scale change, tear and drop of sweat…because we know the miracle that’s taking place is so WORTH the sacrifice to deliver a healthy baby and so we can get back on our feet right after birth and be 110% present, physically and mentally, for our little babies. Their health starts with OUR overall health RIGHT NOW! πŸ’ž

*This group will be for those who are my clients or those who wish to work with me (free) or the coaches on my team πŸ’ͺ
