8.) Keep your eyes on the prize. Establish your plan by identifying baby steps -- and reach your goal.

I found that once my youngest child turned 3, I could breathe. I looked up and started thinking about my career, my goals, my SELF for a change. Even though I was a working mom all along, I wasn’t nurturing my career during my childbearing years. I was just getting through -- earning a living, keeping job, home, and health whole.

How about an Unpregnancy with the promise of your brain-child or nine months, nine lessons to a new you?

Time to put yourself back on your own list of things to do ... a mom is a terrible thing to waste.
