Again a busy week had passed with driving lesson and stuff that needed to be taken cared of. I took my driving test exam today and passed, but mow I no longer have the courage to get into a car like I did before taking it. It’s like NOW I’m doubting myself and no longer have the confidence that I am able to deal with a stressful situation. My twenty five weeks bump did not bothered me during my exam, my baby was quiet and good with his stressed momma.
The concerns about my weight gain are not that strong anymore and being pregnant got ahead on my list of important things. Even if I don’t eat as healthy as I could eat, at least I’m not feeling guilty about every gram I gain. I still don’t eat chips and cookies but I can’t refuse a pizza or french fries, and cake for desert.
I spent a lovely weekend with my husband, we got some alone time and we got very close to each other. It felt nice and I felt loved and cared for and pretty. I missed that because we are used to be doing the same things over and over again that sometimes we forget about our private time and we only meat each other when we go to bed. This time we had no problems to resolve and we just spent time looking at each other and holding each other close together. We will be doing this more often from now on, I can feel it.
Symptoms: Today the nerves resolved my problem with constipation, but I don’t think it’s a permanent solution, the heart burn had slowed down, but I’m still fighting some acid reflux from time to time. Headaches and backaches are my usual companions and in the past few days I also experienced some sore ribs, if I don’t have a correct posture my belly puts pressure on the ribs and my large breasts are squeezing from above. At the beginning I thought some stretch marks will form on my breasts because some red spots appeared all around my nipples, but after a couple of weeks I see that instead of the red some brown spots appeared instead. I use baby oil on my skin every night and that is the only area that got this kind of spots. My belly still has no stretch marks, but I think I’m stuck forever with those on my behind and breast area. To bad!
This week I will go to Bucharest for my monthly doctors appointment and I will ask my doctor about the red spots and also about the lumps that make my belly look funny like my baby is stretching and wants to get out. Can’t wait to see my baby again and hear his heartbeat, this are the best moments of this pregnancy, also my baby kicking my belly is on that list too.
