Assunta De Rossi Shares Experience Of Pregnancy in Time of COVID-19 Lockdown
ASSUNTA DE ROSSI – Actress Assunta de Rossi talked about being pregnant in time of coronavirus lockdown.
The 37-year-old celebrity recently made rounds on social media after she posted a photo of her expensive car keys. In the caption, she said those keys are useless these days because of the quarantine regulations. She wrote, “Hay nako, useless kayo these days. Pa-fresh na muna.”
The Philippines’ Ultimate Showbiz Hub (PUSH) recently had an exclusive interview with Assunta de Rossi. The new mom shared her experiences after entering her 2nd trimester during the lockdown.
“It was totally unplanned and it happened naturally. I’ve long accepted that I won’t be able to conceive the natural way and that I needed medical intervention, so it really was a pleasant surprise for both of us. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time for any preparation kasi biglaan! All I could do was to take advantage of the situation and get plenty of rest. Wala din naman kasing magagawa, and also naglalabasan na symptoms ko kaya that was all I could do. Just eat and sleep,” Assunta said.
According to the report, Assunta de Rossi admitted that she had concerns after the Philippine government imposed a lockdown. The actress said, “I was worried because the last time I had a doctor’s appointment was two or three days before lockdown. I still am worried. But I try not to stress myself so much. Thankfully, nothing weird is happening so that’s a relief. I have a pregnancy tracker on my phone, though.”
“I’m currently 14 weeks pregnant and supposedly the baby is about the size of a pear. Matigas na rin yung bump ko. This is all new to me, so to experience this in the middle of a pandemic is tough. I know a ton of people are having it worse than me, so hindi na ako ngangawa. Constant prayers lang talaga. Thank God hindi ako delikado,” she added.
Based on the report, Assunta de Rossi is currently doing lots of bed rest because she’s facing a challenge that’s common among pregnant women. She also gave some advice to moms who also go through tough challenges.
“I’m stuck in bed all day, feeling horrible. Nausea and dizziness are my enemies these days. I can’t even gain weight kasi hirap akong kumain. Pinipilit ko naman, saka I take vitamins. I do miss being active, but my body feels overworked. Minsan late na ako nakakaligo kasi tulog nga ako maghapon. I remember during the early stages of my pregnancy, constipation almost killed me. So I changed my diet. Sa mga nakakaranas nito, damihan lang ang fiber, cut back on white carbs, and drink prune juice.”
“Pregnancy is not at all glamorous, but it’s the most beautiful miracle,” she added.
