It brings me immense pleasure to share that I, along with 24 other WOMEN bloggers are celebrating #9daysofwomanhood throughout Navratri. I thank my friend and co-bloggerAnubhuti Sen Sharma for introducing me. I am a huge fan of her blog Cries and Laughter where she talks about her journey with her little one. Here is what she thinks of todays prompt.
I would like to introduce my readers to my friend & co-blogger Neha Sharma Her blog talks about interesting parenting mantras and her journey with her son NEMIT at Growing with Nemit and her blog about the prompt is here
The Prompt for today is ” My Pregnancy”
The day we learnt about twin pregnancy, we didn’t know how to react. It took us almost a week to digest the fact and almost 9 months to properly getting ready.
Thankfully we had twin parents in our family who guided us a lot all through. I am sure every single pregnancy is special. They are all difficult as well as fun in their own ways. Having a twin pregnancy was no different. It was a ride through lot of Allergies, Infections, Injectables, Medicines, Pains , Pampering, Photoshoots, Planings and what not.
There was a different experience everyday but one thing that I ll never forget and also which differs totally from a singleton pregnancy was the soccer game that used to be an evening routine of my girls.
I was in 19th week of pregnancy when a cousin was getting engaged and a full Karan Johar Movie style party was in its full swing when i felt something fluttering in my stomach. Initially I felt its just some other perk of pregnancy but when it repeated in about half an hour, I understood it was something I was waiting for. The so talked about ‘BABY KICKS’ and it was a moment of Euphoria because now I started feeling something inside me which had a life, a movement, a mood and a response too.
Eventually, in few days I could feel them as proper kicks and not just flutters. By the end of 20th week they both were all active and made it a routine to play soccer or Boxing we can say with each other not realising that it was mommy’s tummy they were hitting on.
Very soon, they both fixed their heads down and that was when my most difficult stage started. They both had their legs towards my ribs and that phase of play used to be highly painful. Even though me and my family used to wait all day for that time to come as it was an assurance that both the babies were having gala time together, but when it used to occur which was almost once in 2 days that they both were active together, it used to be highly painful sometimes.
There was one other funny thing that used to happen and I laugh missing it. The hiccups. Sometimes both of them will get hiccups together. OMG..!! 5 minutes sometimes even more I used to feel a regular interval jerks. Somedays I used to cry it out to my mom that please do something to stop this, but they were still inside, we could not distract them or give them water to subside those hiccups.
It was really a difficult journey full of little problems but every bit is worth, Every bit we enjoyed.
