I’m a couple of weeks into my fourth pregnancy (well over 6 I believe)… TADAAA!! There I’ve basically announced it. Memory fails me but it seems that some of the discomforts hit me early this time, or I must forget because the last few times I was dealing with other things at the same time… Exhausted after a business trip, Exhausted from a teething baby… Hmm… I see a pattern: EXHAUSTED. The bad news: early pregnancy for me is usually paired with a mild to severe exhaustion, and this time around I can’t really lug around for weeks on end until it passes, I have an empire to run. The good news: I know there are natural ways for the pregnant & exhausted to keep their head above water.
Pregnancy Exhaustion: Nature To The Rescue
I notice I have a burst of energy when I eat a (small) piece of juicy fruit. Especially apples help when I’m feeling like I swallowed an air balloon — which usually leads to me slumping away into a deep deep sweet sleep. Feeling like this is annoying because gosh darned-it this baby just got here… how will I feel when it’s occupied my entire “baby carrying” cavity?? I am SO sorry if that visual was gross… but growing a human is not an elegant affair.
So, find a piece of fruit, eat a teeny tiny bit, chew slowly and stop before the watermelon sized air balloon expands in there. You will thank me. I personally enjoy Apples, Pears, Peaches for this. Bananas, Pineapples and Mangoes might work but they have been trial & error for me. Watermelons are a NO GO for me, they are the most offending fruits for me when I’m avoiding feeling like a pumped up bull frog. I think the more dry, less sweet fruits do a better job, but I’m no expert on your body, you still need to test and see what YOUR body and human plus one think of it during this phase.
Antioxidants For The Pregnant & Exhausted
An antioxidant rich drink may be a great alternative for you also. I’m anxiously waiting my package with NingXia Red to arrive, can’t wait to have some every day cause this momma is def low on energy and while there was a time when sleeping all morning was doable, with 3 older kids running around, a household to run and a home business to grow… it’s just not conceivable to just sleep the better part of the day anymore.
And why not? Other ladies are reporting amazing results with NingXia Red, including myself. I have some NingXia Nitro, which I use in a pinch because I only have 4 left of the tubes. Today one totally helped me keep my lunch down after I started feeling like I was about to blow — added bonus! Because I’m running low I am saving the last few tubes for emergencies.. I think needing to curb a hurl is a definite emergency… HA!
Anyway, here’s what one of my friends shared with me about NingXia Red…
Angela Anderson says NingXia Red changed her life. For more than 5 years she struggled with low energy and was ready for bed by 4 pm everyday. Tons of testing found nothing wrong with her. She tried many natural supplements but they made very little improvement. She felt hopeless. After a few weeks of drinking NingXia Red she felt like she had her spark back. She says she got her energy back, her digestion improved, and her immune system was supercharged. She says she is a different person head to toe and she drinks 2-4 oz daily and she will never stop!
Kevin and Roxanne Seeber call NingXia Red their GO GO JUICE. In their 60’s this couple knows they don’t eat as good as they should and they feel NingXia Red helps to fill in the gaps of nutrition they are missing and support their overall wellness. Roxanne knows takes a Zumba classes weekly and she can feel the difference if she doesn’t have her NingXia Red.
Essential Oils To Boost Energy
Another favorite of mine is water spiked with therapeutic grade essential oils like Orange Vitality, Citrus Fresh Vitality and Peppermint Vitality. You can also add DigiZe to massage your belly button when you feel like she aboutta blow!! For me exhaustion is set off by digestive changes, basically all my blood goes there and I feel like the plug has been pulled from the rest of me. What these oils can do is help promote gentle digestion so the fatigue, exhaustion or lethargy can move over faster. We BOTH have things to do I reckon… so why not help it pass a little more smoothly??
Supplements To Boost Energy
I may have to reorder this one soon, but a few years ago I was a total energy drink Junkie… I don’t even touch the stuff anymore, but between 2013 and 2015 I built up a terrible habit that led to me being dependent on two large cans to get through the work parts of the day.
For me Master Formula changed my life, it reset my system after having trouble keeping my energy up, I was living off of Energy Drinks to get by taking care of my kids and doing my runs for the home and my business. I drank at least two large cans of Go Fast a day. After adding Master Formula to my daily routine I was able to come off the energy drinks, I wasn’t crawling back into bed at 3 PM and calling it a day any more. I have since been off energy drinks for over 20 months.
