You don’t need to know much about it now – but it may come back up at the end of pregnancy if a membrane sweep is suggested to start your labor. For now, let’s just celebrate how incredible it is that your body takes so many steps to protect your Little Mallow.

Alright, let’s dive into the stress response cycle, shall we? 🌪️
Picture this: You’re faced with stress, and your body goes on a little adventure with three pit stops:
Alarm 🚨: Your brain’s like, “Hey, we’ve got a situation here!” So, it sends signals to the hypothalamus, activating the sympathetic nervous system. Cue the dramatic music because your heart races, and you’re suddenly the most alert person in the room. It’s the fight-or-flight showtime!
Resistance 🧘♀️: Once the danger’s gone, the parasympathetic nervous system takes over. It’s like your body’s own superhero, trying to bring peace back to the land. But if you still feel like there’s an invisible monster lurking, you might end up with superpowers like irritability and poor concentration. Not cool, right?
Exhaustion 😴: If you can’t break up with stress properly, it might stage a comeback. Chronic stress can lead to all sorts of not-so-fun stuff, from heart issues to ulcers. It’s like a never-ending episode of a soap opera you didn’t sign up for.
So, how do you know when you’ve completed the stress cycle? 🕺💃 Well, it’s kind of like knowing when you’ve had enough pizza at the party. Your body will drop some hints. You might feel your mood shifting, your muscles relaxing, your breath going all zen, and your thoughts finally giving your brain a break. 🍕🎉
Consider it your body’s way of saying, “Ta-da! Stress cycle, done and dusted!” 🌟🌬️😌
This week, challenge yourself to solidify your evening routine with music, breathing ,movement or connection with friends that will help you complete your stress cycle.
