I used to talk to my baby during pregnancy.
Sometimes I would tell her about my day, other times about future that we can’t wait to meet her.
It never felt silly or one-sided conversation because she used to respond by moving or kicking my belly.
One day I noticed the baby suddenly stopped kicking.
Entire day passed but I couldn’t feel her movement.
At night I shared with my husband and he said don’t worry baby might be sleeping, everything would be alright.
The next morning I called my gynecologist and informed him about the situation he immediately told me are you ready to get operated?
After the sonography we came to know there was a placental abruption which means the baby was not getting enough oxygen and there was bleeding behind placenta.
Doctor said we need to do the delivery now as it was not safe.
He informed my husband and my mother in law that there are less chances of the baby’s survival.
The birth of baby Princy was not less than a miracle.
My family was immensely happy as both of us were fine.
I could feel her and hold her after 6 hours and then my soul saw her it kind of went ‘oh there you are, I’ve been looking for you’.
Princy is now two! and this motherhood journey has taught me to be more patient and easygoing.
One of the most overwhelming parts of motherhood is sorting through all of the products that your little one needs.
Swings, strollers, baby food, diapers, rash cream the list goes on.
Soon I started sharing my own parenting journey publicly from difficult challenges to the joyful moments and route to modern motherhood.
My message to all mothers – It’s important to support each other as moms and women.
Don’t compare or judge each other. Your support could mean a world of difference to a struggling mother.
