Maman, pain in the pubic bone! I'm feeling it too - I've been trying to narrow down what causes it but haven't found a definite answer yet. Gets worse in the evenings, especially when getting up, or walking uphill, can feel it every time I roll over at night. Mine seems to come and go throughout the last week. We've been traveling though, so lots of walking, stairs, lugging suitcases, sitting for long periods etc.
AFM, I have weeks worth of MDC to catch up on, looking fwd to it :) We just got home from Sicily, had a great time but I am so happy to be back in my own house. I weighed myself this evening (especially dangerous after flying and eating junk all day) and got a fright. Two weeks of eating only in restaurants (and many big bowls of fresh pasta, homemade bread, gelato, etc) will do that I guess. I have no self control in restaurants, and also found myself eating a lot just to make sure I wouldn't be uncomfortably hungry before our next meal - as has been happening sometimes since I've been pregnant and we often had to search for restaurants that were open since it wasn't the high season. Big salads and plenty of good protein for me this summer, can't afford to gain much more!! :)
In other, bigger news, my little brother is getting married! He's 24 and is expecting a baby with his GF (she's 21) this July. A few days ago he proposed to her, she said yes, and they have planned a civil ceremony in two weeks in our hometown. I heard about it through an e-mail from my mom, she found out when she overheard my step-brother ask my brother how the proposal went. At first my parents weren't invited to the ceremony, my brother and his GF wanted it to be just them, but then she sent my mom an email (?!) (they live on my parents' property - so less than 1 minutes walk to their house) saying that they could come. My brother and his GF (who I've met several times and have e-mailed with) haven't even told me about the engagement yet, but I see that it's been posted on Facebook. So basically, he didn't bother to tell me, I haven't been invited, and couldn't make it anyway because I live overseas and it's 2 weeks away. My brother and I don't talk that much, but we get along and there's been no fighting or anything to help this make sense. I purposefully organized my wedding to be on a date I knew he could make it, and told my entire family all at once when I got engaged. Not that he needs to do the same thing, but just for background. He could have at least called after telling my parents and invited me knowing I couldn't make it, just for the gesture. I'm hurt, wondering if I'm overreacting, wondering how to approach him, maybe I just congratulate him and send a gift - but it seems kind of distant. My husband thinks that he's just introverted (but admitted that he would hit the roof if his sister pulled this kind of thing), I think he (my brother) is just immature and trying to act independent. FWIW, I also heard via e-mail (again, from my mom, he never mentioned it) when he found out that he was going to be a dad. I have a telephone! And I call my family all the time, at least weekly. I've reached out to his GF several times in e-mail and in person when I was visiting earlier this year, because we're both pregnant, she usually responds nicely but kind of formally and never reaches out herself. Why would she not make sure that her future husband tells his family appropriately and that immediate family (I'm his only full sibling, step-sibs are recent) are invited to the wedding?!! Why would she not want to start her married life with a close relationship with her new family? Or any relationship, not even particularly close? I need to cool down about this, so any insight would be very appreciated.
I'm 25 weeks on Wednesday, can't believe how fast things are moving along. Have a great week everyone!
