During last week…
…the time was passing calmly but still fast. Nothing special happened. Pierogi I made were pretty good, fortunately!
…do you remember when I told you that I wanted to drive around a little and take pictures of Christmas decorations? So I did. I’ll show them to you in one of the next posts.
…I went shopping, something like a gift for myself from myself. I also bought a few things for Alicia and the baby. I’m satisfied with what I found and I saved a looooot of money thanks to all the sales going on now.
…I started to think about what to do with my hair because it’s time to go to a hairdresser and… I don’t have any idea. Nothing, zero, emptiness. The worst thing is that there’s not really much I can do because I don’t want to color it or cut it too much. I don’t know. This is my problem of the week.
Song of the week
Me and my friend Marta have a lot of good memories with Danny and since today I heard this song while driving, I already knew this was the one to put into my post! I smile immediately when I hear it.
On the Internet
Look at the picture I just found! Let me translate it… On the rocks on the left side you can read: fault, resentment, harm, sadness, bitterness. Text above the arrow says: “too much past, to little present”. Then the rock on the right says: anxiety, tension, stress, fear, concerns, insecurity. And then the arrow: “too much future, too little present”. And then this little ant in the middle: “here and now”. I totally agree with this… All the experiences from the past have a huge impact on how we act now, how we feel. The fear about the future limits us in our actions and it’s caused by the past. Vicious circle, right? Fortunately, you can break it and go your own way just like this ant in the middle. I keep fighting with it and it’s hard sometimes but I fought a lot of things already and I wish you the same.
27 weeks pregnant
Baby: around 37 cm (14.6 in) and around 1 kg (2.2 lbs). The beginning of my first trimester! If she was born now, she’d have around 80-95% chances to survive depending on the reason of preterm labor, medical care, etc. Now baby’s development is mainly gaining weight and maturing some organs like liver. She drinks around 1 liter (33.8 oz) amniotic fluid a day. If the light from outside is very strong, she’ll probably turn around.
How I feel? Not much changes here. I feel well in general but I get tired very fast.
Weight? Another kilogram is here! Now I’m 70.3 kg (155 lbs) which is 5 kg (11 lbs) more than at the very beginning of my pregnancy.
Food? It seems to me that my stomach is so pushed on by all the things inside that I have less room inside of it. I digest fast and the baby takes stuff too so then I’m “forever hungry” but I can’t eat any big portions like before. And this is a lilttle annoying. But it’s better this way than not being able to keep anything down!
Sleeping? Recently I had to get up 5 times at night to go to bathroom… But in general I sleep well, I don’t have any stupid dreams or anything and my special pillow helps a lot.
Mood swings? I’ve been in a good mood lately.
The best moment of the week? The whole week was cool.
Other symptoms? Back and ribs pain…
Anything else worth writing down? Tomorrow I have another check up with my doctor (and a glucose tolerance test) and then I’ll start going there not every 4 but every 2 weeks! It’s getting closer to the end! Also, tomorrow afternoon I’m going to have a 3D/4D scan. I can’t wait and I hope she’ll move some more that time, maybe she’ll even smile!
Talk to you next time,
