This episode covers a couple of important topics — first, how to survive and even overcome morning sickness. After six pregnancies, I've finally had a great first trimester, and I spill the most important secrets in this episode.
Then I cover a burning question for parents everywhere — how do you manage to keep up with it all while parenting young children? I get asked what my secret is quite a bit and I'll admit I don't always have it all together 😉 But some tried and true strategies help me keep on top of life and even sneak in some of my own projects. I share what helps me keep track of my family, squeeze in some podcasting, and enjoy life with little ones.
In this episode I cover:
- A vital nutrient everyone is telling you not to eat (and why you should ignore them)
- Why diet is a key to helping you survive the first trimester
- Which B-Vitamins really make a difference with morning sickness
- Why a routine is good for little ones… and for mommies
- A key to fitting in those little projects you really want to get done
- Tools vital to juggling parenting, household care, and everything else you need to take care of!
- How to when it's time to stop — and why it's OK to take a break
