What does it actually mean to be pregnant?
How are you going to look and feel, and what will you be able to do while expecting?
In this new episode of Inner Archeology, we look at setting realistic expectations for your pregnancy, the role of surrendering, how to rely on others and when being independent isn’t necessarily the best of things.
Key Points In Episode:
- Was Sarah really thinking of doing her pregnancy as if she was not pregnant? Heck yeah!
- In your mind, you’re expecting to be eating and working out the same as you did before and don’t want to be one of those women who only talks about being pregnant… but in reality, you only eat crackers, can’t exercise because you’re too nauseous and only talk about being pregnant. Just ask Sarah for more!
- How do you feel about surrendering? That’s something you’re going to learn to feel during your pregnancy, says Emily.
- 70% is the new 100%! Or at least it’s been that for Sarah lately – and that’s ok.
- Yes, being pregnant may cause you to constantly burp when you’re talking to people and to casually fall asleep on the dining room rug right after dinner… #TrueFacts
- Who wouldn’t like to be an independent woman and not have to rely on others? Well, things are going to change during your pregnancy, no doubt!
- To rely on others or not to rely on others? Sarah has always been ultra-independent and has had to adjust to relinquish that power and be reliant on others, while Emily (who’s used to relying on others) has had to practice self-reliance and independence.
