On my mind

I wish it was possible to peak 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…

Gundu updates

I sit here watching my baby finally settle into sleep after more than an hour. His forehead is stinging with fever. I was wondering if I have the strength to deal with this. I get so worried. That’s when I recollected my pregnancy days and the troubles I went through till I had my baby…

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…

Pregnancy Diary – 20.03.2017

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…

U – Unwind

People have a variety of ways to unwind. Some listen to music, some paint, some just put their legs up and watch TV and some take a nap! Though all of these are valid for me at different times, having a nice conversation is what is most relaxing. I had never been the child who…

O – Obsession

I am obsessive about quite a few things, but what would qualify to closely being a OCD is my need for the kitchen platform to be clean. If I have to cook or do anything around in the kitchen, I need the platform to be clean. Staying with my MIL, who is close to 65…

L – Love

Love they say is overrated. Is it really? Come to think of it, what is life without love and care? Love in any form – love for your children, love between siblings, among friends, love for your partner. These form the essence of life. It is among these relationships that we exist and evolve. If…
