Remember how in one famous film the phrase sounded: we have a tradition, on New Year’s Eve my friends and I go to the bathhouse … So, we also have a tradition in our family, every summer we go to rest on the sea. And this can not prevent an economic crisis, natural disasters or pregnancy. It was about the last fact of my biography that I wanted to tell.
When we started planning a summer vacation, my pregnancy was in full swing, my husband tried to talk me out of the trip, but all his arguments were broken about my unshakable confidence: the baby needs the sea! And the fact that the baby has not yet been born is another reason to take it (and as it turned out later) from our Siberian climate.
The vacation was scheduled for August (the velvet season), the gestation period was just 22 weeks at the time of departure (ideally, in the opinion of my esteemed doctor). It was necessary to fly with a transfer in Moscow, but what can you do, fly like this to fly.
I have to say, most of all I was afraid of the flight. Stocked with water, candy, took with her comfortable loose shorts, and of course the book to be distracted. As a result, it turned out that my husband suffered the worst of the flight, then, in descending order, my eldest daughter, well, I felt quite well all the time in the air.
The heat was greeted by an incredible, and even the locals said that they did not remember such August. Having become accustomed to another time zone, we made it a rule to go to the sea after 8 am, and go back home by 11 already. After lunch, went to the beach after 17 hours and sat there until dark. This mode allowed me to avoid overheating in the sun.
Unfortunately, there were no excesses. After eating cheese from the local pavilion (hello to its owner!), I and my eldest daughter were severely poisoned. This I have not experienced even during toxicosis. But, thank God, we quickly came round and continued our rest.
I swim well, and so I spent almost all the time in the sea, thankfully, the water was 30 degrees! At this time, the stomach is already felt, and in the water I gained real freedom, the body became weightless, and the kid (I think) calmed down inside, lulled by the sound of waves.
In addition, I read that the skin as a good conductor absorbs all the beneficial trace elements that are in sea water, and it is so useful for a growing body! To swim in the night sea is a separate pleasure. The water becomes lumpy and lures to its depths. I understand that not all pregnant women decide to swim to the depth, and even more so at night, but you should definitely take a dip at least once!
All good things come to an end, and our vacation is over. I was eating for slaughter and was afraid to stand on the scales at home. But it turned out that my fears were in vain, due to the fact that we walked and swam a lot, my weight gain was within the normal range. We are all back tanned, rested and contented.
I would advise all pregnant women not to be afraid to go to the seas and oceans during pregnancy. Naturally, if you have contraindications, you should not risk the health of your future baby. But if you feel good, go ahead! My baby was born healthy, pretty girl and, by the way, loves to swim!
