When I missed my period I could predict that I was pregnant. No surreal feeling and all. I felt sick and couldn’t eat anything. We went to doctor to confirm and it was confirmed when I was just 35 days pregnant. My brother and his wife was here at that time. They were surprised and happy. My SIL didn’t let me do any work and I took rest for about one week.
I was hungry all the time during my pregnancy. It continued till little A was born. I ate and ate and ate but surprisingly I didn’t put on weight while the baby was gaining weight normally.
We celebrated Tamil new year in our apartment and I was in organising committee. Everyone in the group pampered and took care of me. A very special mention to N. She cooked all my favourite dishes. I almost had lunch at her home everyday and on top of that she took care of Bingo too.
During the month of July my in-laws came and I left to my parents’ place leaving Bingo and BD. A big big thanks to my in-laws. I know my MIL suffered a lot managing school going Bingo and office going BD in spite of her knee pain.
Once I reach my mother’s place all I did was eating and sleeping. My typical day was like this:
Early morning – 1/2 litres of milk with mother’s horlicks
Breakfast – Staple South Indian breakfast with 2 or 3 side dishes and coconut water
Mid Morning – 2 cups of juice
Lunch – Elaborate meal with 2 or 3 veggies for side dish
Evening – Any freshly made tiffin with 1/2 litre mother’s horlicks
Dinner – Anything I ask
Post dinner – 1/2 litre mother’s horlicks
uff.. I put on weight… duh. When I left Hyderabad I was 66 kg and I went up to 74 kg
Then those regular visit to doctor… Oh wait! I think I can tell the rest of the story later. I forgot we are in marathon 😀
