Have you completely cut out OR restricted yourself from having the things you love in the name of trying to get pregnant?
The little things than make you feel pampered and beautiful.
As a woman who is teetering on 38 weeks of pregnancy at age 43, after years of struggling with fertility, spending over $100K trying to build her family, and having helped women around the world transform their lives and finally get pregnant, I am going to ask you to do one thing:
Live a little. Well, actually, a lot.
Far too often I see women mistaking deprivation for diligence to their detriment.
May I remind you that you are on a journey to create new life?
Doesn't it make sense that the process is one that is life affirming rather than austere and lifeless?
Constriction and deprivation didn't bring me any closer to my miracle baby. Nor have I ever seen it work for any of the hundreds of women I have taught and coached.
You know what I have seen work time and again? Making the DECISION to:
Be the woman you truly desire to be on this journey,
Do the things that make you feel ah-mazing,
Have the mindset of a woman KNOWS her baby is on the way, and therefore LIVES her life...wholeheartedly...NOW.
Am I suggesting that you act like a fool or completely disregard common sense advice from medical professionals or anyone else on your fertility team? NO.
What I am saying is that when you take things to the extreme, to the point where TTC has become a virtual obsession, sucking the life out of you and your relationships, or you are afraid that eating a donut will cost you your dreams of being a Mom, it is time to regroup.
Be the smart woman who takes a stand for having it all. It is yours for the taking.
My ladies take a stand for the "and."
They are trying to conceive, they do conceive, AND they live a big, bold, fulfilling life in the process.
Decide you will be one of them.
Change your mindset, change your results.
Lots of love,
Intrigued? Here's an exercise to take this to the next level...
Live a lot.
Be honest and ask yourself if it is time that you reevaluate your punishing TTC regimen. No deprivation, restrictive diet, or relentless obstacle course of fertility rituals is going give you the certainty you desire. ONLY YOU can give that to you.
What are the things you desire to bring back into your journey? How can you relax your strangling grip on it? What can you DO to live more and freakout less?
This is a great opportunity for you to get your partner involved. How can you both live a lot more?
DECIDE what you will have more of in your life...starting TODAY. Make it happen. The family you are building is worth it.

Transformation happens in your ACTION. Quit wishing and waiting.
Stretch yourself. Remember, it's about progress, NOT perfection.
