Something similar happened to me soon after my marriage. I was in a place when my body was ready to bring a new life to this world & my brain went in shock, not that I didn't want a baby, I always did! But not too soon. I was contemplating on the drastic changes which were to come, one wrong decision could make my life miserable to eternity. I yet had to start a living with my husband (as we got married just a few months back), at that time I had different aspirations for my life. However, It would be unfair to my unborn child if he wasn't given a chance.
After countless tears & counseling sessions by my parents, I went to my gynec who suggested an ultrasound. Everyone around me seemed on cloud 9. I was oblivious & perplexed with all the events happening around me, a part of me was happy another was dazed.
Finally, I was entering the room which would change my outlook towards motherhood forever. Inside, I heard the most beautiful rhythm ever created by mankind..this was heavenly, I was overwhelmed with joy...my eyes welled up & those emotions came into teardrops, I kept on hearing my son's heartbeats & with the same intensity my eyes were getting moist, all emotions finally flooded & I rested my hands around my womb & said, welcome to the world my son!
Since that day I never gave a second thought to ifs & buts, my impending role was decided..it was to be a stay at home wife & mother till my son's formative years.
A lot of women might have had chosen a different path of life than I did...I am nobody to judge anyone nor am I a preacher of motherhood, I shared my story just so that aspiring moms, accidental moms & any woman who is reading this post right now, should never fall back from having an out of the world experience like this. Never give up on the power of creation, selflessness & unconditional love that only a woman & a mother can bring in this world.''
