Baby as you grow we grow too....
"Hey listen, doc just told me. I am finally pregnant, but she is saying she cannot confirm anything before another 15 days. I am scared and I don't know if I should be happy or scared."

"Where are you right now?"

"I am at the doctor's clinic."

"Wait for me, I am coming."

This was the conversation between me and my husband when I called him after my first post conceiving checkup. Honestly, I was a bit disappointed as I was expecting him to be more reactive but he was so normal, and not agitated. I continued waiting for him and when he came he opened the car door for me and did not say anything... There was a complete silence and when we were about to reach home he asked "Doc said you are pregnant then you should not worry we are going to have a baby now." It was then that I realized that just like me he is also very scared and doesn't want to show his happiness before everything is fine as per the docs... That was probably the first time in our marriage of 2 years and 6 months that without saying anything we were on the same page... That was the first moment of our journey called parenthood...

From that day onwards everywhere we went whatever we did,  we did had disagreements and agreements but we were always on the same page as both of us wanted one thing i.e..; a healthy baby... Come 21st September 2013 and we had our dream, our baby girl in our arms and  we realised that the journey of parenthood till now was an easy one but now it is going to be a roller coaster ride... Now we are no more a lovey dovey couple but we are parents now... We are no longer free and independent but we have a dependent attached to us now... Now doing something special for each other might not be something romantic but it can be putting baby to sleep by one so that the other one can sleep without disturbance...

The day our daughter was born I told my husband to get mittens for her and he told me that he would go only after he holds his sweetheart once... He was awake that whole night, holding her in his arms and allowing me to sleep and that is when we both realized that parenthood means doing everything together and we have done that literally... From diaper changing to massaging, bathing, feeding and putting her to sleep, we have shared it all... I won't say that it has all been smooth... There were times when we both disagreed to great extents... There were times when we both were extremely tired and thought that the other one is shunning away from his/her duty and imposing it on the other... There were times when we both didn't want to see each other...There were times when we both didn't want to take any responsibility as we were already too tired of taking one... There were times when I wanted something else for our baby and hubby wanted something else so we ended up fighting... There were times when we did not  speak to each other because of some conflict... There were times when we ended up remaining just parents and the couple in us died...

But then there were times when we felt complete with the baby sleeping between us... There were times when we thought there is nothing we would ever want in life... There were times when after not agreeing we chose to agree to the other one because of the trust we had on each other's ability... There were times when we both used to be awake even after our daughter falling asleep just to see her sleeping peacefully... There were times when we would share sweet fights on who will spend more time with her... There were times when we did not spend time as a couple but we grew as a family....

Our journey of parenthood was and continued to be our transformation from U & I to us…
