My mother used to say that she knew me as a whole and had that divine connection of love and care, superior and holy of any other bond even 9 months prior to my birth. Being a mother is more than a bond of totality, satisfaction and heart-touching emotions as after it, you feel for each and every kid. The presence of such a heavenly boon in any woman's womb acts like a stress buster. Maternity is not about being perfect or good or bad, it is at the crest of every aspect of life which tunes a woman’s life into a totally changed and a better one, as that magical sensation you feel from your toes up to your head by that one empyrean word ‘maa’ deserves and is worthy off all what you put in.
For me being a mother was an inexplicable sensation where I easily saw and felt the magic of God and experienced a divine feeling, as I held a small piece of miracle inside of my own belly nurturing with my blood.
It was only on the 13th of January when while watching a movie with my husband I started to pass out and my eyes were gone nutts behind my eyelids. He was really freaked out and the next day I first checked my pregnancy with the pregnancy strip but not being so sure about the results of those two pink magical bars, I, with my husband, made my visit to the hospital to get confirmed about the results. Reports took a day to arrive and it was like a dream come true when we learnt about the pregnancy by our Doctor. Those memories are till date held deep in my heart and soul and I can still feel that heart-warming stiffness and anxiety that rolled down my eyes. That marvelously cryptic feeling was immensely beautiful for us both.
The very next day, We made an appointment with a gynecologist and went for a visit to her where she examined me, prescribed some medicines and called me a week after for an ultrasound. It was only on the 25th of january, when I first time saw and observed those magical heart beats and that tiny trail like miniature growing inside of me, on the monitor screen. That very moment felt like those waves of love and emotions striking the bars and pebbles of my heart one after the another. My husband and I were so captivated by that very breeze of vehemences.
With maternity, I wasn’t allowed to step out of my room for there were so many eyes to take care of me and help me out with my stuff, yet I was advised by my doctor to stay active and do regular work hours of job for it may ease my chances of getting delivered normally, so my schedule wasn’t shook much with pregnancy apart from regular doctor visits, those medicines, nausea, chuck ups, craving, fluctuating mood which further continued till my delivery day.
Days passed like whelming brook and I stepped into the 7th month of pregnancy when that baby bump of mine was magnifying with a holy spirit getting nurtured into it and it was for the first time I experienced those baby kicks and tiny quickenings inside my belly that felt like a little tickling and flicking with flutters. My husband and I were so captivated by our baby’s mein that we decided to get a beautiful maternity photoshoot done to capture those truly miraculous moments of our prodigy blossoming inside of me. After searching about hundreds of photography websites and studios, we found Deys Photography, one of the finest photography studios in Delhi and Delhi NCR with proficient staff and reasonably affordable price for photoshoots. We even discussed their outdoor shooting locations residing in Meerut, Noida and Gurugram. But, as we were lacking with time, we decided to get an indoor photoshoot done at our in-laws house. With their comfortable and helpful staff they helped us meet our dream of getting our pregnant couple’s maternity shoot done with glee.
Now that the photoshoot was done and my 8th month was about to end, I started to get a contraction on 2nd of October which I didn't identified at first as a labor pain but with increasingly immense pain we rushed to the hospital, got myself admitted and the next day at 12:13 in the afternoon with a normal delivery, got that precious little angel of my life which I had patiently waited for. Holding her in my arms for the first time I felt as if each vein and organ inside my skin were humming a really soothing tune. I felt so complete and tranquil as if this was what I always had implored for. That tiny little frame of her’s and those cheeks and eyes and those soft tiny hands and legs, believe me, gave such a heart-warming tenderness and exhilaration which no other materialistic possession could ever give you.
Sometimes it gets a bit impenetrable with her baby obduracy, but even trying to hold her for that, feels amazing and incredible. We thank God each day for blessing us with a sweet little angel of our life who is more than a mere princess to us and has filled our lives with joy and happiness we always prayed for.
