#mommytakeover (post 3)
It's just a coincidence or something else..today is **23rd feb**. I can never foget this date! (And all for wrong reasons)
💕After I conceived (I had to go through amniocentesis.. I have already written a post on same) and then everything was fine till 22nd Feb. We had to go for an ultrasound on 23rd Feb. I was already feeling depressed because of every now and then complications coming our way.
👀 I entered the usg room and had this unwanted unusual feel that something is wrong. My heart was beating faster Ans my usg was going on.
😮 my reports were handed over to me and as I have already read a lot about facts of usg I saw my afi was 6...with one out of four pocket showing zero.
😢 I didn't understand why is this happening.; I was eating well. Taking rest and still all this is happening with me
😦As my gynae said it's not alarming but a matter of concern ( pregnancy emotions were getting over my head..I could not think of anything but fearing about the situation)
😥 it's difficult to manage when " a mother starts thinking *what if* questions"
💊💊💊more medicines...arginine sachets was prescribed
🍚first time in life I ate boiled eggs ( m a pure vegetarian) I puked...ate...puked ate...for almost 2 weeks because I need to eat proteins. More and more protein.
😠 I was angry with myself that why m a vegetarian...why can't I digest egg..( my liver is very weak). I can't even digest much paneer.
😰another ultrasound was scheduled in march which came as a shock. My AFI was 5. All sachets...eggs...paneer...and what not went in vein.
In simple words...doc decided to give me amino acid through my veins (just like glucose) it was a 5 day session; 8 hours per day
😢 I used to lie 8hrs alone with needles in my both hands. And used to think endlessly about my baby. It pained...hands used to get swelled...turned blue.
😢 Saw my husband crying after seeing my hands( he was unable to see my hands that way)
I had such fear of needles that even sight of those gave me chills.
Everyday 2 needles...even nurses asked me***there is no place left in hand..we will have to poke the arm***. I only know how this conversation felt. I hated needles and now they have left no place to poke on my body
😌I knew it was all for my baby and I was very positive about the results. We were expecting an increase atleast upto 7.
😔 The very next day 10th March I went for an ultrasound again...and the result was...
AFI : 5.5
We were shattered. All pain swelling tears went in vein. My baby was not gaining weight. She was just 1.3kg....
My doc asked me to keep count of movements and continue with eggs paneer n arginine. She forgot to tell me to take bed rest and I kept doing walks...sometimes became breathless and thought may be my body needs more movement. ( I wish someone would have told me it's not true)
I was breaking from inside...bit by bit...no1 was there to understand me. My husband didn't show but I could read his face. We were just praying to God. All I wanted is a healthy baby.
P.S. my Mil was just concerned about baby weight " 3 kilo to hona hi chaiye"
🙅what was your Mother in law concerned about during your pregnancy? Were there any complications regarding Amniotic fluid index?

All my -in-laws was praying for Baby Boy.

Gosh...you have been through so much!!!! It's worth the trouble and I'm sure you are a stronger woman. Regarding your mil...I would say don't let it bother you....let it go....your husband is very loving to you. Dear thank you for opening up to us!!!!!

I m also taking tablets and powder sachet; from two days Dr said me to take more protein drink more liquid my AFI; is 10 , little reduced than normal in anamoly scan.;

This is a moving post. How was your experience?

She doesn't know anything called once week.; Giving advices whenever call,; but not think to come to live with me as i and my hubby; working at another city.

My mil was more concerned about the date and time the baby will be born.. It should not be Saturday.. Not Sunday because they will suffer.. If its a girl then Friday is OK.. Uff. Last minute also she gave tension and my daughter was born according to her date and timings.

Same with my Mil Jigna and dnt worry....all will be fine. I will share more 😊

Ohh God it's like u have written exactly what I have been thru with my second child. And I got to know things on 14th Jan and my only brother was getting married on 20th Jan. I underwent amniocentesis on 17th a day before his haldi. And on 19th when we were about to reach the venue my husband went and got chromosomes report and he told me everything is normal. We cried so much with happiness.
Ohh.. I'm having goosebumps even while writing this.

First sentence my mil would speak is that it shud be boy but then she will twist and say ya baby shud be healthy..

Same story as yours Richa... And I guess this is what connected us :)

Satyam Sharma dnt miss my next post. Our babies share same birth weight too😊 n gender too😊

Gosh uve been through a lot

This is so touching. Am sure God has a way of doing things and only the strongest women face things. You are among the strongest lady. As for mil,such peeps don't have any identity. Spineless and selfish -- we don't have to deal with such negativity.

Waiting waiting

More power to you and your baby dear..you are a strong woman..

Way to go Richa.... You've been really strong for your baby. Really happy for you and admire your toughness.
My mil keeps comparing my pregnancy to hers (her son-my husband)... At this point I weighed so much...I did this much..I felt so much... On and on. It gets tiring at times but at times it's nice to see her relive her pregnancy.. Guess it's a privileged journey we women get to take...

Heart touching.mera baby ka wait 2.25 tha meri mil ne kha hao mari leela (devrani) ke ladke ka 3 kg se jyada tha.hmesha compare.

Omg you went through so much even during pregnancy dear.. you really are the strongest!!! Hey btw at which week your baby was 1.3 kgs???

My mil told me to be active so it will help in normal delivery..
My afi also goes litle down its 9.2 dr prescribed me argenil n 1 boiled eggs coconut water n bed rest. .
Then it increase to 9.8 in 17 days but still need to increase ac to the weeks of pregnancy dr said its good that its not decreased n increased slightly so continue wid the med n 2 days ago i checked and it increased 9.8 which is good according to week of preg.
I saw a video on u tube that rasgulla has high protein n 1 or 2 is help to increase the baby weight so i started and it realy worked for me i gained weight fast which means my baby gained weight. . In last usg baby weight is more than 2 kg.. so can expect good weight till delivery😆

Yeah Richa i can relate,i am a pure veg too and started with eggs after doc said,baby is too thin and in the least percentile! Had preterm labour threat,injections,what not! Pregnancy is full of mixed emotions!

Ohh god. U hv gone through so much. All these things makes a woman strong. My mil dint even ask abt my health nd dint even bother to come nd visit us as we both were staying in different city due to our jobs. She only gave tension on phn nd that creates fight between me Nd hubby

Hey .. U have went through so much of pain...
I can relate to u about mil...
Mine is different story will share some day ...
Ur journey to meet ur child is of such that I literally had tears in my eyes..
I was waiting for post..
N wanted to read in calm place ..so made my kiddo sleep n then read..
After that I was unable to sleep..wat went in my mind was ..women r so strong that they can bear anything in this world...
Just to conceive is not happy moment..but ur baby should be healthy is a deal...
More power to u n ur hubby who alwz supported u in ur life...
God bless u n ur baby with lots of happiness Love success n prosperity in ur life. ..
May all the coming days with filled with joy n happiness...
N this moment be erased from ur life..

Mil are always like this....they cant be like your mother..they always thinks that daughter in laws are machine....

I was facing the same issue of low aminiotic fluid level from the 7th mnth.. it was 9 or 10 till 33rd week.. my gynae prescribed me argipreg sachet once in a day bt the level of fluid wasn't meeting his level.. at 33rd week the level was ol okay n baby growth was ol gud bt after 33th week it gt stopped she wasn't gaining weight according to d week.. Afi level was decreasing day by day n it was only 6 on 36th week. I also had amino acid session in 35th week coz of low amniotic Fluid..I waz due on 21st feb 2018 bt i admitted to d hospital in 37th week n delivered a beautiful baby😀 gurl on 7th Feb 2018... about my MIL she wasn't dere in my whole pregnancy I had faced ol d issues n pain ol alone.. my husband was very supportive during my pregnancy but a women understands d other.. she doesn't bother about me n my health bt feb beginning se baby ko leke concern start kar dia.. baby healthy hona chahiye n ol dat bullshit.. From the beginning of my pregnancy till today we both; (me & husband ) are taking care of her only.. bt um Happie ki ye natak MIL k face nai krne padh rahe😞😏

I wish every woman see a beautiful pregy 9months. Mil don't understand time had changed and moreover quality of food water and stress...it's totally different

Agreed Richa..! 😊

We had to deal with gestational diabetes and my wife had to prick needles 4 times a day, everyday to check her glucose levels. And at the later stage, all of a sudden her bp shot up tremendously. And we had to go through an emergency c-sec. Fortunately we had a full-term healthy baby weighing 3.5 kg. 😊

My gosh richa. Big gulp. U are very strong....

Omg Richa , am just going thru ur take over posts.. they left me in tears 😓😓 u had gone thru a lot.. strong lady .. more power to u Richa 💞💞 I had suffered from low amniotic fluid during my 9th month.. my gyane suggested me to have 2 litres of coconut water, 3 litres of butter milk and 2 sachets every day.. and amniotic fluid came to normal number within one week ..

Thanks everyone for reading it so patiencefully

Omg you went through so much.; You are a strong Mom.; Mine wasn't a smooth ride with my heart condition and low lying placenta.; Every month I had to see my cardiologist also.; My MIL was hoping for a; Son but later she was very happy with my dd because after 3 generations in my in laws family; the younger son has a child.;

My mil is unique one she doesnt care about anything,she just know that after concieving one should be house arrest( like she do to me).
I have not gone out since i conceive.(except doctors visit).
I wish ki thodi concern dikhani wali mil mili hoti.

Humera Mehtab plz talk to ur huby or ask doc in front of your huby or Mil. ..going out walking is important moreover....staying happy is important

asha maam I went through a lot more after delivery maam...the way I was treated post partum by my Mil was so bad that I will never be able to forgive her

I can't believe this yaar...you went through so much...kis mitti ki bani hoti hai MILs...only God knows!!
