Journey of motherhood is a biggest event in any woman’s life;
I embraced it for the first time when the test showed 2 pink lines one early morning;
Our happiness knew no bounds and we were on cloud nine eager to be loudly announcing.
Little did I know the responsibilities it brought along when one fine day I found my sugars soaring high;
Was advised to cut down on my calories with a calculated intake and started my regular pricks ,still amidst all the hardships my happiness was way high.
Will never forget that evening when my baby’s heartbeat was found absent on a routine scan;
Could not figure out when and why , with what fault of mine had it left us alone again;
The entire night prayed and wished the scan was by fault and a miracle happens the next day with the repeat scan but in vain.
Never felt such pain ever before to let go of something out of me which we held so near;
Though never touched , saw or felt, but till today I can sense what void was left behind by our baby number 1 dear.
By Gods grace by next year, the same month our hearts n homes were filled with happiness unexplainable with our baby girl SIA entering our lives;
She was early by 4 weeks before the due date, but equally fast and easy to adjust to this world outside and our lives.
I can still recollect the day I knew it was “she”, and had multiple emotions- all credit to our societal taboo, the way she has broken each negative thought and made me feel at times,God was really kind to us to have blessed us with a “daughter- which would be incomplete if any other way”.
Not a single difficult night or a tough day I can remember with managing her , such has been the way she has moulded herself into our lives;
Everyday till date the countless ways she has made us proud by all the new things she is learning, swells our hearts with more pride.
Had always seen through my mom and heard from many others a lot about motherhood;
The person I have changed to be, the patience that has grown with me, I wouldn’t want it any other way.
Indeed motherhood is a very necessary change which brings multiple positive changes along to make everything worth it.
“Motherhood- a blessing in every woman’s life”
