Balancing Hormones Naturally {for Moms}

When I was a youngin', pregnant with our first child, I remember teasing my husband one day, quipping that 'wasn't he glad that I didn't cry at the drop of a hat like those other pregnant women?'

I didn't experience hormonal issues back then. In fact, I didn't until my sixth pregnancy.  Near the end of that pregnancy, I began feeling angry for no apparent reason.  I realized then that I was experiencing the dreaded hormonal shifts that I had only heard other women talk about.  Even still, it wasn't too bad, and it was usually short lived.

Each pregnancy following, I would experience those irritable and angry feelings a little sooner in the pregnancy than the one before.  It was getting worse.  Those shifts were so unpredictable in my third trimesters that I knew I needed to do something about them or else my poor family would suffer.  Or tie me up and throw me in the closet.

  1. Hi Candace! It's been a while since I checked your blog, but clearly God led me here today. I've actually struggled with depression for years but have been med free for two years now. What keeps me stable is a daily mega dose of Vit D (5000 IU during the summer, 10000 IU during the winter -- of course I live in a cold, gloomy winter climate). Usually during pregnancy I am all over the place emotionally for the duration. This time around things have been much better, but the last few weeks have gotten bad again. I had been missing taking my normal supplements (including the Vit D), so started those again. Perhaps I'll try the Cal/Mag as well. I've got some sitting around from the last pregnancy when I used it for other pregnancy related (digestive) issues. Only a week and a half until my due date, so I'm excited to be nearing the end! Wander on over to my blog and take a guess about baby's arrival if you'd like. :)

      Thanks so much for stopping by. It's always SO good to hear from you! And thanks for the additional info about the Vit D. It's so true. I think many of us don't get enough, especially if we live in cold climates like you. Heading on over now!
