I am back! Not just to the blogging world but I am back home!!! :) :) :) It feels incredible! Excruciatingly incredible! I just cannot stop smiling.
Well, there's another reason why I cannot stop smiling. A bigger reason. And the biggest reason behind me coming back home is, soon
in January. :D
So me is a mixed bag of all emotions right now. Elation, nervousness, scared, jumpy.... every imaginable emotions I have gone through since we found out that a new chapter in our life is gonna unfold. Am I prepared? Am I well equipped to handle everything that comes along with it? Don't know! But sure as hell we are over the moon, not to mention the ever waiting set of grandparents!!!
FYI, a few weeks in the first trimester, made us go through hell. Like many others, I had my bouts of nausea, weepiness, crankiness, vomiting etc. KK became my godmother during that entire period. It was certainly a bigger hell for him, having to balance me with my bizzare hormones , the entire household - complete with cooking, cleaning, laundry and his ever demanding work. I am not sure what he ate or didn't during that time. I was so selfishly self involved!
I love him for being so patient, caring and most of all understanding my situation, even though it was first time for him to handle a major, inexplicable situation. One moment I was laughy, next I was screaming and in a while I had tear soaked cheeks. Every time I was met with hugs and "don't worry, everything's gonna be fine". And eventually everything is fine.
Currently, it is lambi judaai for both of us. He will be coming back to India in December. I am not very happy with the prospect of staying away from him for such a long period of time, but I had to give in to the demands of the situation. :( Still 20 weeks for KK to come here!
Yenniway, the highlights up to date.
We got to hear our baby's heartbeat during my last checkup in America! There are 160 doog doog doog heart beats per minute. It is healthy and normal. Whew!
And, during the first checkup here, I had an ultrasound and me and KK got first glimpse of our little one. Kk Jr. is 8 cms long :D!!! Kk Jr. was actively somersaulting and tumbling merry. I had tears in my eyes. We also saw a tiny part on the left go dhak dhak dhak. eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! I can still hardly believe all this is true. Small arms and legs, not very distinct, were still moving ... and aaaaahhh!! I cannot explain my feelings further!
For now, I am at my in laws place, enjoying all the attention and lovely food prepared by my incredibly sweet MIL. (Now, I know where KK gets all his kindness from... its genetic). I will be going to Pune (YAY!!) in October to eat all mom made food!
Indeed! Pregnancy is the time to get pampered and loved and send orders in every direction. No one says anything. hehehehe...
Please flood the comment section and make this preggy gal happy! I like congratulatory messages and take care advices too! :)
P.S. Dare anyone calls me "pregnant woman", I prefer (and demand) "preggy gal".
