I so used to say 'awwwww' to those pregnancy photoshoots with prego woman holding nice cute shoes on her belly.;
The baby shower pics I was madly in love with.;
The rosy posy picture of people around treating you like a princess.
The cravings, where you would ask ur hubby to get up in the mid of night and ask to get you ice-cream from the remotest corner possible( I bet,this is soo filmy)
But,in reality,pregnancy is not what it seems in movies!
;It comes with so many limitations, as your body is working so hard to nurture the tiny creature inside,it becomes mammoth of a task to do normal activities (even the basic necessities like bathing,eating,peeing).
Health goes for a toss. Physical in capabilities accompanied with never ending hormones which gives you those bumpy rides every now and then.
All of a sudden,you start crying,for no obvious reason..
watch a cute baby video,cry your heart out then minutes later wonder,what was wrong with you,why the hell you cried.😱
Even smallest of the things can disturb you which never mattered earlier.;
🍰Cherry on the cake is you need rest and you are unable to sleep because of gas,heartburn,unable to change sides,frequent pee calls (;for this,my hubby said why don't you make your bed in the washroom for a while , atleast you don't have to run marathon every night😂)
🚼 Then baby movements (;at first you would be all worrying when would you feel ur baby moving,rolling inside and when the little monster starts kicking,you would again freak out,why the hell he is not sleeping,is it normal or is my baby hyper active😎), and then when all of a sudden you won't feel the baby (you again lose ur mind) ,in the terrible voice,you call your gynae,who would make you run to labour room for quick NST to see if the baby is fine (and there you go,as soon as the NST starts,your little fish will be squirming again and you would scratch your head 'does nst plays some baby music? How come you are squirming now while seconds ago there was all silence;😱) I bet ,these unborn's enjoy to play peek a boo right from the womb 😬
And it doesn't end here,there's more to the story with your in-laws behaving as if they all are pregnant with hormones rushing high making them vulnerable to every small thing because ur hubby is paying a little more attention to you 😬
Then,your own cleanliness keeda will bite you so hard that you will end up cleaning every nook and corner of the house with that little energy you saved (as if Diwali is around the corner).;
After that you will be so tired that it looks like a war front with a slight thought of getting up to pee..
However,how much you crib,you still find solace at the end of the day thinking of your little alien.
It's true that Pregnancy is worth every ache and pain and soreness and what not,for you are on a road to meet the creature you made,your mini version..;
I still wonder,how amazing is the GOD's automation of nurturing a human inside another being!
