I personally respect my body and all its functions. Thoughts about the inner functions of my body, leaves me with such sense of satisfaction. My body has done a lot for me, having a healthy body is crucial to exist on planet earth. I am blessed with healthy body only because I have no judgement or negative feeling towards it.
I have regular conversations with my body. Below is explanation on hormones that are dear to me, without these hormones I wouldn’t have my creations, my kids.
We as women, early on learn to blame our hormones, many of us do not know what their key roles are.
Pregnant ladies have sudden and dramatic increase in hormones. This leaves them on rides after rides on emotional role-a-coaster.
Estrogen and progesterone I call them twin sisters, both these hormones are released from cyst on the ovary called the corpus luteum, this is released till the placenta takes over the game. These two are the main hormones that game up your pregnancy. It not only alters your moods, they have an important role behind all that creation, glow, high and dip in energy levels. It holds on to water, this is the reason we have water retention, if your diet is full of sodium.
On an average a women produces more estrogen during pregnancy than through out her entire life. This explains all the emotional crying that happens.
Awesomeness of estrogen is beyond my imagination, it is estrogen during pregnancy that enables the uterus expand and placenta to improve vascularization, transfer nutrients, and support all the development into your little one. It peaks to highest in 3rd trimester. As estrogen levels increase, body needs to adjust to its spikes, many women feel nausea as estrogen increases gradually. Estrogen may decrease secretion of hydrochloric acid and pepsin, which may be responsible for digestive up- sets such as heart burn.
Many women dis the nausea part as unbearable, yes it is uncomfortable, but understanding signs that body gives out is important. It is making a miracle, a human being who will walk and talk and grow like you. It is created in a space within you.
Allow your body to do its job instead of restricting it.
This same estrogen in 2 nd trimester helps in development of milk ducts in your breast tissues.
Progestrone twin sister of estrogen also increases during pregnancy. this amazing hormone helps in laxity, loosing of ligaments. High level of progesterone increases size of internal structure, transforming uterus to safely grow a full term baby. A pregnant woman's entire posture changes. Her breasts are larger, and her abdomen transforms increasing the curvature of her back. The combined effect shifts the center of gravity forward and may lead to changes in balance.
Our incredible body is so smart and efficient, Oxytocin another hormone is produced by the posterior pituitary in increasing amounts as the fetus matures. This hormone can stimulate uterine contractions during pregnancy, but high levels of progesterone prevent contractions till the baby is cooked completely.
High levels of estrogen and progesterone inhibit lactation by blocking the binding of prolactin to breast tissue until after birth.
Beta HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) the hormone that changes everything for a women. This is what gets everything rolling. This hormone is what the pee stick picks up in the urine. This is the hormone which shuts down the ovaries signaling the body to prepare for a life to grow inside. This hormone screams announcing the changes. It increases from eight days after ovulation, peaks at 60 to 90 days and then lower slightly, after everyone knows you are pregnant. First weeks of pregnancy this hormone doubles and triples circulates through out the body announcing that your body need to pull up the sleeves and add extra time working harder. This hormone later takes over all the hormones as the master planner placenta. There are several more hormones which play their part in creating a baby. Later on they help in producing breast milk and work on retuning the body to normal.
Our smart body in itself is a world beyond fascination and imagination. playfulness of hormones create miracles and also imbalances. Learn to appreciate instead of manipulation, your body will serve you in its true essence.
Our body never lies, never judges us, it only serves us- till you stop appreciating it.
If you want to plan your pregnancy in most scared way.

I am mother of 4 and I would love to add on a new entertainment channel sooner or later.
Yep, I call my babies everything from, “my products, my investments, my billion $.” They keep me entertained so they are my entertainment channel. When you have more than one, it’s fun to sit and enjoy their personalities, their tantrums, their way of caring, loving each other, and their annoyance. My life is so damn meaningful in several ways than one. If you have a big family, you will know it is the combination of different personality that satisfy the soul.
There is no pleasure out there, that is as simple and soothing as your babies giggles. The joy they bring with their stories make it all worth it.
My hubby and I have two boys together, he has been asking for a girl baby for a long time. That I, somehow, know there is one waiting to be part of our family.
I already have 2 girls from my previous marriage and have 2 boys. I am totally blessed in the baby making area. To add another into the family is an awesome.
However, in today’s “amazing” world,
When I express that intention out, I love to hear comments from others:
People from medical fields immediately say, “You know, you cannot make a normal baby after 40?”
“Haven’t you had enough?”
“Don’t do this to your body!”
“Really? One more? Don’t you think that’s a lot on your body?”
I am from a subcontinent, whose population is catching up to be number one soon!
So I get to hear Indian versions of comments too.
“India is already populated enough.”
“You are Indian, don’t you know by now what increase in population can do?”
“Do you have money to send them to college?”
“You need to start saving up.”
My maid servant in India told her amazing idea to my mom. She asked my mom to get my tubes tied before I left India, otherwise I would bring 2 more babies on my next visit.
Why are people so concerned about my personal issues? Have you wondered why you are suddenly topic of concern? Why does science reject 40 plus women? Some women are really healthy and can make babies easily, according to my experience.
Why does the world love to hand you their “sun glasses” and ask you to see the world through each one of their perspective?
It’s another baby. Additional souls bring their own fortune.
Are we as a society not interested in having a guest anymore?
I am married to my American husband and I think if I don’t help America, there won't be way too many left to call themselves whites in America. White people don’t make that many babies anymore. So I am proud of myself to return the generosity to the nation.
I make fabulous babies, healthy, smart, and wise souls have chosen me. So why not create one more product in an insane world.
In my experience, diapers are expensive is a useless comment. I used diapers for all my kids, and I bought them; recyclable and disposable. We never felt it was expensive, potty training got easier and quick after each baby.
"Babies eat a lot", nope. I cooked for my babies, all my kids eat, but not so much that it burns a hole in my pocket. They don’t get packaged goods and store bought foods, I love to cook for them fresh in the morning and afternoon.
I work with women over 40 to make their dream come true of being a mother. Surprisingly they make amazing 8-9 lb. babies. People in the medicine fields treat them like they are crazy and are risking their lives to have a baby. I make sure to prepare these ladies to reject opinions of science scared cats. But in actual my experience says, “You are so much more mature to make an amazing baby at 40 than in your 20’s.
It all depends on the woman and her health. If you are a guinea pig to the medical industry and have a million issues physically, you may need to stop making products. Then, I clearly get it, it is risky. If you have had more than 2 C- section, tearing open your uterus again is certainly a bad idea. Mother's who have tried too long, couldn't conceive during their peak career time and is ready to invest time in creating a baby should be encouraged. Science did not exist few hundred years back, baby's were birthed during that time. Women did get pregnant at 40's, some did great, some may not have.
I love the saying, “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”
I love that I have learnt to recognize people handing their sun glasses to me. Now, I reject immediately.
I have always been healthy. I have had emotional ups and downs as an adult. Apart from that, my body is fabulous and extremely healthy. After I did my unassisted birth, I take my body’s cues very seriously. I love my life in such a vast perspective that when people say I cannot do something, that is when I have to prove them wrong.
It’s been an amazing journey. I was a rebel since birth. J
Now that I am nearly kissing my 40, I pick and choose what I need to prove and what I can reject.
I teach seniors and hangout with lot of people born in the 1920’s or 1930’s. They have one big piece of advice that they give. "Don’t let age pass by, that you regret not doing it."
One lady said, "You can never have enough".
None of them ever complain, "my baby ate a lot and took all my money". They never mention that they paid for college for all the kids and they don’t spend time with me.
They live in senior living and adjust to their lives and are excited to see when their family visits them. Having kids is a blessing. If you can make your own fantastic, if not adopting is an amazing quality.
Such opinionated sunglasses are given to our next generation and they have so many infertility issues. Fear is fed in them from early on. With just
You come without any money, you are taken care. Universe bends over its back to support you. Gaia loves us to keep giving us what we need. Humans screw it up! Nature knows how to recycle humans too.
When you don’t have a soul picking you as parents, think about what all you say out loud regarding having an uninvited guest home.
Are you constantly busy? It’s not time yet? You are not ready? such sentences in your energy field is blocking your ability to make a good baby.
My mom lost 3 babies after me and that never induced fear into me. Every time I got pregnant, my mom said, “Stop no more.”
It took time for her to understand its luxury in having spirits to share your life with.
If not for relationships, there is nothing more meaningful in the world. We, as spirits, learn through experiences and expressing ourselves; and we need company of other, different souls.
If there is a desire, manifest it!
Life is too short to regret, compromise and live in suffering.
Stop borrowing sun glasses from others. The world was a beautiful place and a much happier place before we started nuclear families. It will always be abundant and beautiful. Stop spreading the fears you carry.
I suggest my clients, if you have the desire to add a baby to your family. Do it! Nature has provided with several herbs that can enhance the uterus and create a great environment.
With determination, Miracles happen...
When a woman conceives, she has several questions that run through her mind. Every thought is related to the welfare of the creation she is working on. Her hormones change and the increase in progesterone levels add to the discomfort of her growing body.
In today’s world, working is inevitable. A lot of women do not have the luxury of staying home. Resting or working becomes a choice. I sometimes ask my clients, obstetrics is also part of a career; to have a baby is important for your self-growth and transformation into the next phase of life. Sometimes, a baby is a surprise. No one in the family is ready yet. Instead of creating too many unwelcoming thoughts, it is important to accommodate as life happens. Just flow with the life surprises. If you are a control freak, this area is not under your control, learn to surrender.
One question i come across often is, is there a way around prenatal discomfort?
We forget that our body is doing all that it has to, to make room for the little one. I personally taught throughout my pregnancy. A lot of women work till their due date, or till the baby is ready to show up. Discomforts exists in all pregnancies. Frequency and intensity differ with each woman and with every new pregnancy. It is up to you to accept the discomfort and figure out solutions or create millions of thoughts of how hard whole journey is. Keep the end results on mind that will create a joyous outlook on the entire journey.
These are some of the ways you can manage working and being pregnant at the same time. Accept that your mind slows down and in certain situations you can forget things. Do not assume that your body is the same. I like to write notes to remind me of a lot of things as I progress in my pregnancy. It is proved scientifically that we lose brain cells with each pregnancy. I have had 4 of them, so I am not sure about the count of my brain cells. I have had such amazing experiences with each pregnancy. I have gotten better in managing it now. Below are 5 types of meditation that helped ease my life and bring harmony in my family and my journey with each pregnancy.
Meditation can improve your concentration and also result in the baby’s ability to be calm and concentrate. It also provides foundation for bonding that happens later when the baby arrives. It removes frustrations, and brings clarity into women's mind. Pregnancy can trigger certain emotions that are not worth taking a ride on, as everything is absorbed a tiny little one inside you.
