Moving ahead

Me and baby

life can be so tough I never thought so. If you think the pregnancy  period is tough no you are wrong, thats just a trailor. Actual patience test begins after delivery. Life takes U turn and from carefree life it becomes endless sleepless nights. You find yourself leading same routine with no time for yourself. Navyaa looks so angel while she sleeps but she awakes up always hungry and there she goes uwaaan ……. she cries at the picth of her voice am sure apartment people must be having real tough time dealing with her cries 😀

All is fine but it is really tough to get at odd hours in night to feed her although love to see the smile on her face after she is done. It gives me immense satisfaction but then if you think its over for this time and lets grab some sleep there she goes Poop and now clean all the mess and top of it that STINKS a lot 😀 and here comes a look from her as if saying “DEHKA… don’t mess up with me”

Finally go back  and grab sleep of hour or two and then same cycle follows…. but when she smiles while sleeping that is a moment to relish and really feel like looking at her whole night 🙂 such divine smile

Her dad wants to play with her  but all the time she is sleeping and when she is awake S is in office…

But it feel so great when I see her feeling comfortable in my lap and looking in my eyes as if she is complaining about other people and then resting her face against mine to get solace 🙂

 Oh here she cries again … rest I’ll write later



Week 36….Final Day

Final day

I never knew my baby will bein so much of hurry that she will come 25 days early. SHe was expected on 23rd of march but baby decided to come on 28th feb itself.

27th Feb: Time 2 p.m.Navyaa our little angel
I was having my lunch and after I finished my lunch I discovered my water bags have brusted, I was still doubtful that this cannot happen to me so rechecked and confirmed yes it has bursted, so rang  S immediately as he was in office that time, he came immediately and I was rushed to hospital without wasting time. My MIL was very scared although we both were calm.

My doc checked me and found I was only 2 cm dilated, she said she will wait till the pains and contractions start so gave me antibodies so that there is no infection to baby. Till 7 p.m I didn’t had any pains so was wondering how long I have to be here, then again doc rechecked me and found I was only 3 cm dilated. That was frustating. Anyways more frustating was that I was not allowed to eat or drink anything not even water, my throat was choked but still no water, then tough life began by 10 p.m. as I started having slow pains but they were deadly, pains were coming every 5 mins and so severe that I was just looking at wall clock all the time that doc will come and recheck and will take me to labour table but no nothing as such was happening and I was dying with pain.
She came by 11 p.m. rechecked and said will wait till morning, I was terrified but have no options, I kept on saying give me pain killer, they did gave me but it was of no use

It was totlly unbearable now without water so I pleaded for water, they gave me few drops to sip and I vomitted
They said this was the reason we were not giving u water 😦
I really felt this is end of my life… am definitly going to die
Anyhow night passed and it was morning 5 a.m. I had a hope now they will take me still same answer we will wait

By the time it was 10 a.m. I almost felt am going to die, seeing my condition S asked doc to give me epidural. Although she was reluctant but then gave me
I was so much releaved and then came my daugther, our little princess NAVYAA JAIN at 10:51 a.m.
Feeling was beyond explantaion when they gave me my daughter to cuddle. I felt all those pains were worth taking for this little bundle of joy. It was a feeling which is beyond explanation. First time to cuddle her, take her in my lap. Put her in my bossom , feel her tiny fingers and when she opened her eyes it was likewhole world was in her eyes only

Now that she is with us still we feel we have not seen her enough and can gaze her for hours and hours.

May god bless her

S wrote a poem for her welcome which I shared in my other blog too…

We are writing this to share
A moment so unique, a feeling so rare

A little cute angle has flown down to earth

From our prayers womb she has taken birth
Who would of thought, to our surprise?
The day we looked in our daughter’s eyes,
That we would find our sunshine, our star, our pearl,
All the thoughts in our head, of this little girl.

You came to us early on the twenty eighth of February,

She was supposed to come later, but she was in a little hurry .

We did not realize the moment, ’till the moment she was placed inside of our hands.
And it was at that split moment,

When she opened her eyes,

her true identity was no longer disguised.

As the lights glistened, in her beautiful eyes,

Inside we slowly started to cry.

We were given an angel, from heavens’ above, the final test as a man and wife,

A little girl to love and cherish for life.
Anjan and Sachin Bhandari (Mom and Dad)

31 Weeks

Now that am in 31 weeks waiting eagerly for baby to come,,,it’s really difficult to pass time and wait. Longing for the big day to come. We have shifted back to India and settled now in hyderabad. Initally it was difficult as it became so stress ful to travel all the way from UK to India>>Delhi>>Jaipur and finally to Hyderabad. I was unable to even move from bed, whole body was aching so badly and was really worried about baby. The moment we got the fetal well being scan and nurse told everything is all fine I was back to myself  Setting up house from scratch was really difficult, thankfully am lucky to have wonderful in-laws who made it easy and helped a lot. Now that everything is in control just it is wait for the day to come..

These days lot of changes have occured with me and am actually unable to recognize myself in mirror. Am having a big recognizable bump, most funny is to see baby moving, I can see my kiddo moving as my bump moves along sometimes when baby is in kicking mode, baby becomes happy as soon as I have my meals and becomes active. Baby responds to S voice and tap on tummy and he loves playing hide and seek with baby, moving his hand somewhere and waiting for baby to kick at that spot.

We both are waiting for the day when little bundle of joy will be given in our hands, when we will cudle our cutie pie and I’ll put baby in my bossom.

Oh what a moment it will be for us

love u baby

25 weeks checkup

Just came back from my 25th week checkup with midwife, she checked all the reports and listened to babies heart beat.. I too loved listening heart beat

She said all fine 🙂

These days baby responding to S voice, as soon as he says baby in loud voice I feel kick 😉 seems baby to eager to come out and meet us

Reading Habit in Kids

I read few tips on reading habits and thought of putting it here for my own future reference.

Make Reading Fun :

  • Read with plenty of enthusiasm!
  • Invent voices for the different characters and encourage your child to repeat catchy phrases or fill in words with you
  • Let your child hold the book, touch the pictures or turn the pages.

Read in different places

  • As well as at bedtime, try reading during bathtime.
  • Maybe you can find a ‘Secret reading place’
  • But remeber there is no better place for your child then your own lap to provide security and confidence

Praise your child’s efforts to read

  • Even the youngest children like to pretend they are reading.
  • Encourage and praise them while you are reading together

Have a regular time for reading

  • Whatever time suits you best, it’s important that reading becomes part of your child’s daily routine.

Have a ‘special’ place for books in your child’s room

  • Children love choosing their favourite books from their own shelves in their room.

All these tips will help to give your child a lifelong love of reading- plus reading together will be enjoyable for both you and your child.

Now am waiting eagerly to try all these once I have my baby in my lap…

Got so many plans and dreams for betu, want to read you lots and lots of stories, want to sing lullabies to you, get you so many dresses and toys, want to listen mama from you, S too is waiting for the day when you will come and touch with your little hands, when you will say him pa for first time..

Waiting eagerly 🙂

Anomaly Scan

Had my 20 weeks abnomaly scan on 13th Nov, 2007… I was very scared before having the scan. Was so nervous that couldn’t gather courage to be there, All I wanted to hear was “Everything is normal”. Yup got to listen these words and then only  I was back to my self. It was great experience to see baby yawning inside. Oh so cute.. baby was yawning and sucking thumb. Loved seeing that and wished the scan is never over and I can watch whats happening inside whole day.

Wanted to know baby’s gender but baby didn’t wanted to reveal and wanted us to keep in mystery. Nurse tried but was in vein.. So now Me and S both will have to keep guessing till End 😀

Oh yes I can feel baby moving inside…. be it anywhere a party, watching TV, sitting or lying.. I can feel a sudden soft jerk as if baby comes and knocks me … say’s hiya mumma and just rush away 🙂

Mostly it is during late evenings while watching tv, am sitting in a relaxing position and then my concentration is less on TV and more on whats going inside.. I keep on telling S and he will too try to feel it, sometimes lucky enough to experience the jerk. I think he is jealous now as I have the oppurtunity of the same 🙂

But still he can listen to the heart beat which I cannot .. so guess we are even.

Now that we have to go back to India am little scared of travelling… hopefully everything will go right.

have to take appointment from GP tomorow and then have a scan on 13th on which it all depends now… so pray to God be with us and our baby all the time
