Life was really going fine after I got married in the year 2017, but still in my heart there always existed a feeling of incompleteness and tenderness which I wanted to fulfill. It was only in April of 2020 when the whole World was locked in their homes due to the Covid-19 pandemic, that I started to feel anxious and nauseous along with missing periods, so recognizing such symptoms, I tested my pregnancy which gifted me with those two magical red lines appearing in the pregnancy test strip. The following day my gynecologist informed me and my husband about the news of our pregnancy. It was really an astounding moment for both of us and our families. My mother-in-law told me that the real completeness for a woman is to give birth to a heavenly boon who would blossom her life with love and joy.
On the 4th of May, my husband and I, for the first time, were scheduled for an ultrasound and other important tests. On watching those tiny little heartbeats of my baby on the monitor screen, I experienced a really invaluable and heart-touching wave of love in the deep ocean of my heart. Feeling those priceless beats and that bundle of miracle getting nourished inside my belly, a sensation of love and emotions rolled down my eyes.
The first 6 months of my maternity were really beautiful and relishing with the wait and excitement to hold that heavenly angel in my arms. Wondering about those innocent features and naughty moves that my baby will have, used to send the commotion of warmth and affection inside my body from head to toe. My husband or say my best friend, was really protective and supportive for me the whole time, caring about my needs and me was the only job he was doing right at that time. He cooked me breakfast, took me to all the places I felt visiting that time, pampered me, and took care of my health in such a way that no other person ever could have. Along with these sweet moments, there were also regular checkups, ultrasounds, medications accompanied with the chest burns, to & fro moods, and craving for Jalebi, probably which I never really liked that much before. I still remember that first baby kick I got during the 3rd month of my pregnancy which blew excitement and warmth inside my stomach.
The 7th month of my maternity was accompanied by shortness of sleep and swelling in my arms. Though it became a bit hard for me during that time, still that excitement and love for my child used to wipe away all those difficulties. It was during this time that my husband and I decided to immortalize those days of our maternity into lifelong memories, which would act as a connection between our child and us. After searching various photoshoot websites, we found Deys Photography with a broad range of maternity shoot locations including outdoors, indoors, and paid studios, and a really affordable price range to fit our budget. We really enjoyed getting shot by them and the pics which came out were really magnificent and beautiful. Thanks to them for making our maternity memorable.
Soon I entered the 9th month of my pregnancy and the due date was just 3 days from then. I was really excited and nervous at the same time. On the night of January 25th, as I started feeling labor pain, my husband rushed me to the hospital, and soon after, the other family members arrived. I was taken into the labor room to get delivered, and the next morning, the most awaited day of my life arrived, inviting a sweet little fairy to hold my hand and bless my life with rainbow joy and magic. As soon as the nurse handed her in my arms, I felt like the luckiest person in this entire world. The feeling of completeness and heart-touching emotions was flowing inside my heart and I wasn’t able to help cry. Thinking about what my husband would be feeling at the moment really made me emotional. With joy, he exclaimed “ Oh God! Mai daddy ban gya”.
Her presence has changed our very life in a really marvelous way. We are really blessed to have her as she took our hands and befriended us with the joy and merry of life. We can do anything for that captivating smile and naughty movements she has, which wipes off all our tension and stress in just a second. The feeling of satisfaction is now present in our life.
