My journey to motherhoodSo it was a routine day , my husband went to office and I was in a doubt of being pregnant so I checked and it was positive.It was just 2 months we were married , didn't get time to connect with the new responsibilities new family basically everything new, didn't get time to travel n enjoy with partner. So it was very much unplanned , I was 25 n it sent shivers inside me , felt helpless now what do I do I don't want a baby right now m not ready for it, so my husband ( also was 25) lifted my spirit gave me the strength to accept this pregnancy with grace n happiness, it's a god's gift, he was patient n had faith that whatever happens , happens for good
It did take a lot of time for me to realise that how special n beautiful it is to have a new life growing inside u kicking moving doing somersaults...oh god! One f the best moments...seeing baby in scans n listening to his tiny heartbeat was a time I used to wait for..reading the weekly fetid development editorials..talking to my bump thinking my baby will hear me n waiting for his kicks in return..the lullabies I used to put on speaker for the baby to listen..feeling his wriggling with fingers n toes..I loved being pregnant. I loved the thought of being a young mommy..I saw my friends married and unmarried enjoying their life thoroughly..having well paid jobs, business and venturing out with partners , then I used to think that I have the world's most precious gift n most honourable job...my husband was my constant support and inspiration. Today I am a proud and confident mother of my 4 month old baby. And today when I look in my baby's twinkling eyes I say to myself thanku for taking the decision of having a baby..for not ending a life just so I could enjoy my life..
