For many women it means nothing, but some swamps right up on the couch and feel lazy, slothful and worthless for their surroundings. Quite a terrible state to be in as a newly pregnant woman, because must have actually a greater desire to feel the pure happiness because of the great thing pregnancy is.
How do You Deal with it?
Throughout your pregnancy you need to focus on not using energy on unnecessary activities or thoughts.
You have to clear everything from your head to gain energy and only concentrate what is really is important for you to have enough energy. It can be very tough to see what could be done differently in everyday life, but it’s a good idea now to divert your mental focus to achieve good a good pregnancy and childbirth.
The Recipe to use During Your Pregnancy
The recipe you need to follow to gain more energy starts by doing a brainstorm and ask yourself “What will it take to make you feel you have enough energy?”
Write this down and to it could be something like:
- That you do not have to cook every time
- That your boyfriend tells he love you
- You don’t have concern if you eat to many cookies
- That you sleep too much or too little
- You need to wash the cloth
Are these things you have which is giving you the lack of energy; are they really the problem you should be bothered with during the pregnancy?
Get these problems sorted and you can probably not get them all fixed, but create a set of rules and it could be like “when I have slept for 8 hours”, “when I have eaten breakfast”, “when I have talked with a friend on the phone”- You need to make a decision that once you have done these 3 “rules” then you have the energy.
For Now You Have Enough Energy
How your new rules are going to look is up to you, but they should be honest and specific and must be integrated into your everyday life.
There is much research into the negative impact of having stress in pregnancy, as one can get by guilt or restless sleep. But as far as I know, there are no negative consequences of achieving a pregnancy filled with energy. The important thing is that you do something to get your new rules integrated into your everyday life.
All choices involve opting out and you must accepting turning things or actions down. That you can’t do everything you normally do, with the same type energy you used to. You must also accept that you can actually do many of the usual things, just in a different pace and this is actually a good preparation to become a mother.
