Loren Brovarnik is facing alone time amid her pregnancy.
In PEOPLE’s exclusive sneak peek from the premiere of Loren and Alexei: 후 90 날, NS 90 데이 약혼자 star questions her capability to stay home for eight days with her 14-month-old child Shai while husband Alexei (알렉스) Brovarnik travels home to Israel.
There’s a reason for Alex’s trip: a wedding he must attend. According to Loren, he added on some extra days for weekend fun. 하지만, she and her parents question the timing of Alex’s vacation.
“He’s leaving a pregnant woman and a 14-month-old,” her father states.
“And I was okay with it until he said, ‘I really want to take advantage of the weekend, so I’m gonna go three days earlier without even being like ‘Are you comfortable with… how does it make you feel?’ ” Loren says.
It’s not just about Alex leaving, Loren says.
고해성사에서, she explains the difficulties of her second pregnancy. “With this pregnancy I’m — I don’t want to say depressed, but I’m more isolated,” 그녀는 말한다. “And on top of everything, I have Tourette’s syndrome, and anxiety triggers it. Stress triggers it. Talking about it triggers it.”
She also explains that during her pregnancy with Shai, her Tourette’s was triggered, like with her second pregnancy. On top of it all, the stress of having a young child and balancing her own health has made the second pregnancy less comfortable.
Though she’s facing struggles, Loren is understanding of the reason Alex had to travel. “If he didn’t go now, he wasn’t gonna go for a really long time again,” she tells her parents.
Loren even looks at it from Alex’s perspective. “When Alex came to America, I definitely felt guilty because he left everything for me,” 그녀는 고백에서 말한다.. “And I’ve always said, 처럼, it’s important for him to stay connected to where he came from cause if it was the other way around, I would want the same thing.”
Though Loren sees Alex’s reasoning, her father isn’t as easy to convince.
“I think it was a very selfish move on Alex’s part to leave his wife and child,” 그는 말한다. “I understand he had to go to the wedding, 알 겠어요. But to extend it out just to have vacation — it wasn’t work. It wasn’t deployment. It was a choice.”
