Ambitious. Accomplished. Pregnant.

Pregnancy has been an interesting journey for me. There’s just so much to digest and I tend to be one of those deep divers when it comes to information. If the doctor tells me something I’m going to do a TON of research. That’s just how I am. Things changed about 6 months in — I cared but it wasn’t that serious. For my sanity I just decided to go with the flow and log off the interwebs.

There are also the experts. I have very quickly learned that having had one child (and especially three) makes most everyone pregnancy and parenting experts. *lol* I’ve decided to stick with the advice of doctors and even my closest friend who I’ve leaned on for advice suggests I call my doctor anytime something strange comes up. She’s a pharmacist and has squashed my fear of appearing too paranoid and thinking that I’m being a pest by calling. I appreciate her for that.

Oh and the fear of miscarriage after miscarrying seems to never go away …

Everything I feared about becoming pregnant while being an ambitious entrepreneur is true. In the beginning I slowed down and really wasn’t able to accomplish as much in as little time and that did a number on my psyche. I didn’t beat myself up at all, I just found myself feeling defeated some days. Weekends seem to hit me the worst. I used to be able to get 150 million things done on the weekends. I’d start out very ambitious heading out of the door with my full plan and after a few hours out I felt like I was going to die if I didn’t take a nap in the next 20 minutes … so I’d go home and lay down for about two hours only to wake up feeling like I did when I went to sleep (tired as hell). It was vicious cycle.

This seemed to wane a bit as the pregnancy progressed. I still get tired, just not THAT tired and the upside of all of this is that I’ve become an even better PLANNER. I know my time is very limited and that the day can turn left at any given moment, so I get EVERYTHING that MUST be done handled as early as possible. I’ve also found myself eliminating things and people that feel draining. I barely have the energy so if you’re doing the most you’re out. It’s that simple.

My list of pregnancy stuff (so far) is …

Well, that’s all I have for now as I kick off my 8th month of pregnancy. Almost there!
