So I'm five months preggie, and I'm wondering about my leptin management and cortisol levels.
For the most part, I sleep about 9 hours a night (I have no choice b/c of the preggie hormones!) and those are pretty regular hours of sleep. Also, my life is pretty low stress right now. I am still doing CrossFit twice plus a jog or two per week, but I keep it less intense than pre-preggie. So I'm pretty sure my cortisol is under control. However, I think my leptin management/cycles may not be as elite as they were in the few weeks/months before I conceived.
I'm wondering: if I put in the work to improve my leptin cycling, then would this help my baby have better leptin cycling once it's born and therefore, better sleep cycles, like his or her mommy...?
Any thoughts? Or research?
