How to be productive while pregnant

Can we be productive while pregnant?

For us Moms who have made a living off of crossing off our to-do list, it may become frustrating when our energy seems less and our other kids can suck the energy from us that we do have left…

I know that for while there, the first couple of months were really hard for me…

I felt very sick when I woke up in the morning, even if I didn’t eat late the night before…

Feeling like you are going to fall over and throw up is never a fun or confident feeling and if you are going to work everyday, taking care of other children, or really even leaving your house at all, it can make you feel sad…

and un-productive…

Thanks to a quick conversation with my husband the other day, a beautiful thought blossomed in my mind…

I am making a baby!

I’m waay more productive then I’ve been in my whole life!

Unless you count breastfeeding, I suppose, being pregnant is one of the most productive things in life…

It totally trumps anything else on your to-do list…

No, seriously, how can I be productive while I’m pregnant?

Something very special that Gabby taught me is that we have enough time to do everything we need to do…

Time expands for us…

This is faith and belief…. stressing and worrying about not getting things done is a great to attract more stress and worrying into your life….then you really won’t have enough time.

If your work schedule feels overwhelming….I give you permission to release this stress…

Take one thing at a time and have 100% faith that things will be done as they are needed to be done.

You will have enough time…

Before I started committing to my practice, I would write to-do lists….

Now, when I write them, it’s a spiritual practice….I’m writing to the universe to be clear on what I want, and then I bless the items, allowing them to take form however they need to.

This feels so good!

It’s a total allowance…

You may or may not see the productivity in this process, but I’ve been stressed and anxious and disappointed for far too long… I was getting things done for other people…. on their terms…. for far too long…

I thought I was getting my own things done…but I was just feeding into the chaotic energy of everything around me…

I was getting things done that really had not the positive energy in them that I needed to become better….

And really be productive…

Forgive yourself for everything, and keep on  making that baby….

Which is a great metaphor for the miracles that can occur in our lives, naturally…

We don’t tell our bodies how to make a baby…. it just does… because we allow it to occur naturally…

This can also apply to everything else…”miracles occur naturally, and if they don’t, something has gone wrong…” -ACIM

My personal mission is to get out of my own way…

God bless and have a beautiful day!

Bonus: Here is Marie Forleo’s recent video on productivity…I like how she recommends to do what feels right and works for you…
