Those 9 months are the most beautiful moments in a mother’s life. These are the 9 months, wherein the mother has the child exclusively for herself. Nobody can touch or feel the child, apart from the mother.
I still remember the day when I was holding my baby for the first time. It was the most beautiful feeling in the world. I am a mother now. And the moment has arrived when I am holding my son after 9 months. When I saw him, I almost forgot everything, well I was in pain but it felt worth it. I still remember the way he cried and the way he cuddled the moment he came in my lap. He knew I am his mother and he is in the safest place on the earth.
That moment nobody can ever forget in their life. Today while holding him in my arms I went back to the day, where I got the news that I was pregnant. It was the month of the August. I was not feeling well from last two days. It felt and I was having fever and my whole body was aching too badly. I decided and went to doctor. My doctor asked me about my last cycle. It was then I realised that I was late for seven days. Then I thought that its just seven days but she insisted me to take the pregnancy test. It was positive and I was worried as I was not at all ready. I was very scared and the first thought that came across my mind was, Am I really ready for this new responsibility? I am still trying to adjust to this new phase of my life. It was my husband who convinced me that I am not alone and we will work together. This was a journey for both of us where we were planning to make a huge decision of our life.
The first thing was to find out an OB/GYN and to do monthly pre-natal check-ups. The news of my pregnancy spread like fire and I was getting list of suggestions (to do and not to do) from my family and friends. For me these 9 months of pregnancy were like a roller coaster ride. It was a phase where many things I experienced unexpectedly. From morning sickness to nausea, from getting tired to being very emotional, and you constantly have feeling to go to loo. There are many emotions and many feelings to go through. It was my doctor who explained me that it was natural process for a body to experience many emotions due to changes in the hormones. Also, she explained me the development of the foetus in the womb and how we can bond with our child in the womb by talking to him or reading him a book of your choice. The child has already started bonding with his mother and shares emotions as his mother so it is very important to stay healthy and positive.
From that day I started to think in a positive way and every night I ensured to talk to my baby about my day and the things we can do when we are together. I still remember the way he started kicking inside. It felt like butterfly fluttering in your womb. It was the best feeling and that feeling still brings smile on your face.
I read many books and I went through many websites where they tell you the milestones you have reached and the development of your foetus. Even after a hectic day, I ensured to take a walk for at least an hour and do meditation to keep my mind calm. I still remember waiting in a long queue of ultrasound waiting for your turn and drinking litres of water so that you can clearly see the images of your child inside you.
When you see them through this imaging you wait more eagerly to meet them as soon as possible and the moment you see them you fell instantly in love with your child. And you feel that it’s worth all the pain. That small little bundle of joy in your arms make bigger room in everybody’s heart. Today I would like to thank my husband for helping me throughout my pregnancy and handling my tantrums without any complain.
