So, I have been very inactive in my blog for the past few months. I apologize for leaving my blog like this with occasional memes and discussion posts. But, trust me, for last few months, I don't want to blog. Well, I don't want to do pretty much anything else either. Okay, this is it, the big reveal -- I am pregnant - for 5 months now.
We were so happy when the doctor confirmed our assumption. But, then the symptoms hit - nausea, dizziness and vomiting. I was thrown off guard. I had a full time job to deal with. Luckily, my company gave me permission to 'work-from-home' for a month. Before we even had time to celebrate the good news, I felt like I am in a roller coaster, only this time vomiting all the way (Ew! I know!).
But, you know, we both wanted to have a child and we know this will be okay. My hubby was so supportive and so are my mom, dad and my brother. I stopped cooking altogether for these few months. I took all meals from my mom's home. Now that it's the fifth month and almost all the symptoms subsided, I finally feel better. Of course, there is still this lower back pain and disturbed sleep pattern. I think I can manage with these things.
AND I felt my baby move a week back (** squeals **). And he/she has been doing a lot of acrobatics ever since. It's the feeling I would not trade anything else with - feeling some new life inside you for the first time. Everything is worth it for this moment.
Yes, I am still deadly terrified of my labour and the wellness of my baby. (** sighs deeply **) But, I trust and I know it's going to be okay..we are going to be okay.
So, that's my 'big' reason for partially abandoning my blog. I don't want to review or blog. But, I still read and update in Goodreads. And suddenly, for the past few days, I feel like I want to write something..anything. So, DO NOT blame me, if there are more of random discussions or completely unnecessary and/or irrelevant posts. It's totally one of the pregnancy perks. :)
