Moms are Beautiful and Babies are cute

Today, while I was scrolling down my phone gallery, I came across this picture clicked a couple of weeks ago. Just a random candid click by my husband📷. That day, I was doing my daily chores and came in between to play with my baby for few minutes, and husband clicked at the right moment.
I wouldnt have posted this picture if it wasnt with my lil one. I was all messy, tired, sweaty. Still I am in love with the pic.
With this pic i realise all moms are so beautiful.👸and all babies are cute👶
No doubt all babies are cute. All moms would agree to this, but may not be all girls and ladies. I quote an incident here which made me realise this. once while playing with a baby guest at our home I said to mom “ye itna cute nahi h na( this babyvis not that cute)?” To that my mom scolded and said -Never ever say like this. All babies are cute . whats the difference.(bacche sare pyare hote h, unme kya bhed bhao). This just hit my heart.💔Babies are the purest soul. Yes she said this because she is a mom. Now I very well know this because now I am a mom.
For the moms I realise, There can be 🌷fat mom, 🌷sexy mom, 🌷fit mom, 🌷mom with stretch marks, 🌷mom with wrinkles, mom with dark circles 🌷🌷etc etc, but, all Moms are beautiful.👸 We decided to bring a new life to this world. We knew it wont be easy. We are ready for sacrifices, do whatever it takes to raise our baby in best possible way, to make a good human. Only a beautiful lady can do all this. Moreover, just imagine who does tthe pure soul (baby) love the most. The MOM👩‍👦. Moms are most attractive for babies.
Hold your baby and look yourself in mirror and Say this to yourself #AmBeautifulMom

Cheers!! To all the mommies including our mommies as well.🥂

Normal Delivery Birth Experience- Actual Labor Pain

{ Continued from Normal Delivery Birth Experience Part 1}

I started feeling some pain in abdomen, naturally. While my husband was there, I was constantly complaining about-  the pain, uncomfortable clothing which was open from back; pain in palm due to needle prick etc. Then my mom took him home for dinner  and he got a break from those nag. It was my sister-in law’s (bhabhi)  time to be with me. I was talking to her constantly about random things. We were enjoying and I wasn’t even complaining. (May be because two ladies were too engrossed in chit-chatting or; possibly because we complain only to those whom we are the closest). Mom and my husband came back after an hour. I think it was around 11.30 pm. Others wished me and left for home.

Around 12 midnight a junior doctor came to insert the cervical gel for labour induction.  I thought it would pain and asked the same to the doctor.  She negated and inserted something with the nozzle attached to the gel tube, gave instruction to the nurse and asked to monitor me and left. I felt nothing much. Only some liquidish feeling inside. Then my gynaec / obstetrician arrived and said to repeat the dose at 6.30am if required.

Only one person could stay with me in delivery room (LDR). My hospital room was also booked. My husband and mom decided to take turns among them- so, one person sleeps in the hospital room and other one to stay with me, on a chair kept in LDR.

I couldnt sleep well entire night. Firstly, cause of clothing, secondly cause of the drip going on, thirdly due to the beeping sound made by the machine attached to my abdomen, fourthly out of anxiety. AS soon as I would try to turn to sleep on side, the machine would start beeping loudly. Nurse had told, loud beep means , it’s an alert. I didn’t know the difference between alert beep and normal beep, so I kept calling nurse- coz no risk to be taken with the baby. Also I had to call nurse few times to remove the device connected to me as wanted to pee. I was given dose of enema as well, to clear my bowel, but I couldnt poop. Somehow, the night passed and it was 6.30 in the morning.

Another dose to induce labor was given. I already started having some discomfort .Around 7am, I asked if I can get all the attachments removed and if I could walk. Fortunately, I was allowed. I started walking to bear the growing pain. I realised, the actual labour pain had started. It was coming every 10minutes. The pain  kept on increasing and the intervals kept on decreasing. That time I was there with my sis in law. Morning my husband and mum had left to freshen up. By 8am my husband arrived at the hospital to be with me.

I was no more allowed to walk. As doctor said monitoring was necessary. I was asked to lie straight on the bed. Catheter was connected so that I don’t have to get up and go to the restroom. I started feeling like a puppet of doctors. Have to follow what they say.

I was totally packed with all the instruments or monitoring machines etc. Not permitted to move much. I was in too much pain. I wanted to move, turn, wriggle to soothe myself.

I was feeling too hungry, but for some reason I was not allowed to eat food. I called for coconut water, instead got lime juice after a long wait. The pain was getting worse. !!

The First Time Grandpa

In hindi we say “asal se jyada sood pyaara hota hai” . Means “interest is more precious that principal”. All parents in the world are most excited to be grandparents, and grandparents are the ones who pampers a child the most. Anything own child does is a sin, but if the grandchild does then its a bliss.

So, I hope you can imagine, being Grandpa for first time can be how big for a very emotional and caring Dad.

As I mentioned in one of my earliest posts The Curiousity , I got to know about my pregnancy on 29th October 2018. The next thing in my mind was, I need to tell this to people in style, not just normal. To make it big for them, for me and for baby .

2018, end of October and start of November was full of celebrations. I announced Daddy to be  and Dada to be , now was the turn for Nana to be.

I talk to my mom almost everyday, and I am someone who is bad at hiding own secrets. As per my plan, I had to keep this big secret with me for 10 days, without telling my mom. I decided to plan a surprise for Dad’s upcoming birthday on 8th November.

I got a Coffee Mug with “Nana to be” printed on it and made a peel-off-to-reveal card for his birthday. Got it wrapped and sent through Bluedart courier service. I sent it to my brother’s office address and strictly told him – that ‘package has to be opened by DAD only on his birthday and you must record a video’.

No one had any idea about the fact. I kept on talking to my mom. kept telling her about my dietary changes, that I started eating more frequently, stopped eating outside food, having coconut water daily. She was surprised but was happy about me getting towards a healthier lifestyle. She had no clue about the reason. She must also be thinking, that if there is some other reason, I would obviously tell her first, but I planned differently.

Dad got the gift of 8th November midnight around 12.30AM. First he took out the card, which read

“Happy Birthday

Yesterday was diwali

today you turned 64

we have got a surpise to make it much more”

IMG_20181031_130454__01.jpgInside the card, I hid whatever was written, with making tape. He had to peel off to read.

It read

No more just papa papa

no more just pola pola

be prepared for rona dhona 

and to hear nana nana!!

(Card is not a neat one. It was made in please ignore the look n finish also spelling. Content was important)
