A Birthday Letter To My Son

Dear Chintu, I was reading an article on tinybuddha about how it is the little things that actually matter in life. All this while I knew that I wanted to write down something for your first birthday, maybe a letter, a blog post or just a journal entry, which I may show you some day…

Catch up post!

It’s been a year since I am on leave. The time to get back to work is close, I report next Monday. I feel so bad when I think of being 8+ hours away from my baby. It is so hard for moms. They have to choose between their career and being a mother. If…

On my mind

I wish it was possible to peek just a little into the future, you know, just to know that things will turn out fine, unlike how I worry. I have always been someone who worries a lot. Never known to have been calm and clear-headed. Things turn out absolutely fine, many times when I have…

Pregnancy Diary – 18.04.2017

I was thinking today and realized that I am quite enjoying being pregnant. I was rather feeling sad today that I get to be in this phase for just another 45 days or so. Sure, the sitting, turning, bending, walking, everything takes effort and is uncomfortable. But the sensation of my baby wiggling, prodding at…

Okay, this is not going to be easy. 😐 Well nobody ever told it’s going to be easy. Maybe it was just my over-confidence. As if the pain in the ribs wasn’t enough, I slipped in the bathroom today to further pull the same muscles and have been struggling with the pain ever since. I…

2017 Round-up

So it’s that time of the year again, when I get off my ass and wipe the dust off my blog and write a year-end round-up post. Well, this year I at least have a valid reason for being busy – my Gundu. This year 2017 is always, always going to be special. Our bundle…

Journey so far

Been so long that I feel disconnected. I don’t see some of my favorite bloggers writing anything either. 😦 The last four months have been nothing short of a roller coaster ride! Trust me no matter how prepared you think you are to be a mother you will be caught off guard. It is surprising…

Okay! Doesn’t look like anybody has a solution to this. I am tired of scrolling through endless forum conversations with people discussing how each of them have a broken rib from coughing, but nobody gives a clear solution as to doing what will reduce the pain or the urge to cough. I am tired. 2…

Pregnancy Diary – 02.03.2017

“I wrote these posts when I was expecting. There’s always a fear associated with sharing things publicly before the due date, which made me hold back from posting them back then. However I would like to share them now.” I am not sure, why I didn’t think of this before. I wanted to make a…

Welcoming Gundu Onboard

When the long wait ends with something so beautiful to hold in the arms, it all feels worthwhile! 🙂 Yes, after 9 long months of growing fat, feeling hungry, vomiting, waddling and dealing with a variety of emotions – happiness, worry, anxiety, anticipation, my baby is here! Going by the ideal calculations, he should have…
