Vishwanathan, You Are a Boon to Us From God
My Dear Baby,
Your arrival was my first lockdown. My pregnancy news got confirmed abroad with 30 days of lockdown and I came for the first time on a wheelchair on an airport. After 24 hours of flight journey, take-off and landing, we safely landed in India from the US. The next day, I saw you for the first time on the scan.
Five months passed, vomiting. After five months, I stepped into my hometown and the baby shower function went amazing with the blessings of my relatives and music teachers, who also sang.
After three months of enjoyment, came the turning point. The scan showed discrepancies and the doctor was changed. Until eight months, the doctor whom I met made me feel bad and at every time appointment, she used to tell that you will be delivered via a C-section.
But by God’s grace and with my continued prayers and pooja, you arrived at the end of nine months through normal delivery and episiotomy. I was not given an enema and had both breakfast and dinner on the day you were born. You arrived in evening hours.
Ten days before your delivery, I went on a babymoon to a resort for a day with your dad in a two-wheeler. It was the happiest moment in my pregnancy journey.
Your dad and grandma were with me during the delivery, supporting and encouraging me throughout the day. Your birthday is in the same month as mine – eleven days after my birthday. Your arrival gave me confidence in life. Even now, thinking about delivery gives me goosebumps for a moment and I wonder how I managed. The credit goes to the doctor entirely who gave me the confidence just within a month.
You are God’s blessings after seven years of our married life!
