SECOND TRIMESTER

Drugo tromjesečje

Upravo sam shvatila da uskoro ulazim u 30. tjedan trudnoće i da sam već debelo zagazila u treće tromjesečje. Doista ne znam kako je moguće da sve trudnoće nakon prve prolaze tako brzo, ali sigurna sam da je jedan od razloga to što sam opuštena i ne strepim nad svakim pokretom, a i to što su mi dani od jutra do večeri ispunjeni brigom za starije dijete. Kad me netko pita kako sam, često se znam našaliti da nemam ni vremena razmišljati o tome i da sam možda upravo zato, bez pretjerivanja, sjajno.

U prvoj trudnoći uopće nisam bila sjajno. Srećom, ni tada nisam imala baš nikakvih komplikacija i trudnoća je tekla točno kako treba, no svih sam se 9 mjeseci i 2 tjedna osjećala neobjašnjivo čudno, kao da ja nisam bila ja. Iskreno, sve do sada mislila sam da su priče o blaženom stanju i trudnočkom sjaju čista laž te da je trudnoća nešto što se vuče 9 mjeseci i mora preživjeti. Ovoga puta je situacija potpuno drukčija, a ni sama nisam sigurna zašto je tomu tako. Fizički se osjećam fantastično, nemam problema ni sa čime, ne osjećam nikakve bolove ili težinu u tijelu. Naprotiv, puna sam energije i poletna tijekom cijelog dana, fizički mogu sve normalno raditi iz razloga što mi trbuh još nije takve veličine da bi me u bilo čemu ometao.

Zato sam fizički dosta aktivna: svakog jutra izvodim vježbe za trudnice (najčešće jogu) te i dalje posvuda pješačim. Kao što sam jednom već spomenula, cilj mi je 10.000 koraka dnevno, ali ne forsiram ništa i jednostavno stanem kad se umorim. Fizička aktivnost tijekom trudnoće je nevjerojatno važna, jer snažno tijelo lakše podnosi napor poroda i brže se oporavlja nakon istog. Hranim se i dalje veganski i redovito kontroliram krvnu sliku, najviše zbog željeza s kojim sam cijeli život imala problema. Trenutno ih nemam, no doktorica mi je za svaki slučaj preporučila da ga uzimam kao dodatak prenatalnim tabletama, iz razloga što tijelo sada ipak treba veću razinu željeza u krvi te kako bismo izbjegli probleme s tim nakon poroda, posebno zato što namjeravam dojiti. Dosad sam, u prvom i drugom tromjesečju, dobila ukupno 5 kilograma, i kako sam već nekoliko puta napomenula, doista se ne trudim držati težinu pod kontrolom. Ne kontroliram porcije, ne brojim kalorije, ali ni ne posežem za masnom ili slatkom hranom, jer nemam potrebe za njom. Jedem kad sam gladna i jedem do sitosti, krećem se i zdravo se hranim jer vjerujem da te dvije komponente u najvećoj mjeri utječu na moje fizičko i psihičko stanje.

No ima jedna stvar koja mi posebno teško pada, a to je da Borut, Kiara i ja trenutno ne živimo zajedno, iz razloga što u gradu u kojem je smješten Borutov novi klub nismo našli stan, odnosno kuću koja je useljiva prije studenog. Drugim riječima, Kiara i ja živimo same već 3 mjeseca i osim što nam Borut silno nedostaje, vrlo je teško prolaziti kroz trudnoću sama, bez blizine partnera, potpore i pomoći. Najteže mi pada kad pomislim da se ovaj, tako važan i poseban dio života više nikada neće moći vratiti. No s druge strane, najveći i najteži dio je već iza nas i uskoro ćemo opet biti zajedno.

Bisous,

Fée


I’ve just realized that I’m about to enter week 30 of my pregnancy and that second trimester is long gone. I really cannot wrap my head around the fact that all pregnancies (after the 1st one) go by so quickly, but I’m sure that it has something to do with me being relaxed and not obsessed with every single movement and having an older child to take care of all day. People ask me how I’ve been feeling and I joke and say that I don’t have time to think about it and that it might be the reason I’ve been feeling really great.

My first pregnancy was not like that at all. Luckily, it was a normal, healthy pregnancy even then, but for the whole 9 months and 2 weeks I was just not feeling myself. Honestly, I thought that all these stories we hear about pregnancy bliss and happiness were big fat lies and that pregnancy was something that drags on for 9 months and that you just have to deal with it. But this time around, it’s completely different and I don’t know why. Physically I’ve been feeling great, I feel no pain in my body and I’m full of energy. I can sleep and move without any difficulties, probably because mu bump is still not so big.

For that reason, I’ve been pretty active this pregnancy: I work out every morning (mostly prenatal yoga) and I still walk everywhere. As I once mentioned, my goal is to make 10,000 steps a day (with a very active and curious 4-year-old, believe me, it’s not too much), but I don’t push myself over my limits and I simply stop when I get tired. Physical activity during pregnancy is so important, because it makes your delivery easier as well as the postnatal recovery. I’m still on my plant based vegan diet and my blood test results are fine, as well as my iron levels, but my doctor recommended to take some iron supplements, just because my body needs more iron than usual, especially because I plan on breastfeeding, so we want to avoid difficulties later. Just for the record, during my first pregnancy, I was suffering from terrible iron deficiency and I was eating meat and fish at that time. Up until now, I gained 5 or 6 kilograms and as I said before, I am really not trying to keep my weight under control. I don’t control my portions, I don’t count calories, but I do avoid processed, greasy and sugary food. I eat when I’m hungry and I stop when I’m full, I am active and eat healthy and I believe that these two factors are crucial for my physical and mental health.

There is one thing that makes things pretty difficult. Borut doesn’t live with us at the moment, because we were not able to find a place to live in the new town where he moved for his career. In other words, we have been living separately for 3 months, but luckily, we managed to find a house and we are moving in together in November. The situation is far from ideal at the moment because we miss him very much, and also, it’s been very difficult to go through pregnancy alone, as you can imagine. Not having your partner around for support or help is far from perfect. I feel very sad when I remember that we will never have this part of life again, but on the other hand, we will be together again very soon.

Bisous,

Fée
