I'm feeling in a much better space about this so I had to jump on to share!
The nausea and exhaustion can be really sucky. No fun to be feeling blah! No fun AT ALL!!!
BUT! It is just our bodies asking us to take it easy. To nurture ourselves more. Drink plenty of water. Eat plenty of protein and nutrient-dense foods.Nap, sleep or simple laze around at any chance we get! REST! HONOR where we are, which is the end of the road for our pregnancies. Our bodies, minds and souls have been working sooo hard for this little one. We need to just honor this, and be compassionate to ourselves.
This is my third pregnancy and I did not feel this way ever before. But I realize now that every pregnancy is different. There is no textbook pregnancy.We are on a unique path each time.
When we feel a sense of discomfort, our wise body is just calling out for us to listen and take the measures we need to feel better.
Tired? Make time for more rest.
Nauseous? Eat more snacks and up the protein even more. Make some simple soup to sip on throughout the day.
Body hurting? Take time for some gentle stretching if it feels good. Move more slowly. Take a lavender bath or warm shower.
Emotional? Let it flow, whatever the emotion; moodiness, tears, whatever. Just honor it! Don't judge yourself. Just breathe. Take time-outs in your bedroom for a minute and just sit and breathe.
Overwhelmed? ASK for HELP! It can be difficult, but you can do it, and it makes people feel good to be asked to help so you'll actually be making someone's day, as well as your own!
You alll are amazing, strong and beautiful women performing the greatest miracle known!!! You are growing a BABY inside of your wise and beautiful body, and are about to birth this baby out of you and into the world!
YOU ARE A GODDESS!!!!!
lots of love to you all~ Sunny
