I conceived in Dec 2019, and every month has been a different experience. My third month was horrible, with severe nausea and vomiting. Rice, my staple food and favourite food, too, gave me much nausea. Bang! Surprise and sometimes irritating, too!
The next months were pretty good with cravings and made me a super chef! All my progesterone vaccines were pretty painless, but one gave me a severe pain haemorrhage for which I had to use an ointment. I had a lot of doubts, and sometimes some of them seemed quite silly.
Each and every scan gave me shivers down the spine as to how my baby was growing. It was more like an exam to know how well I am taking care of myself and my baby with a proper diet. Oh ya, diet! Yes, I ate a lot of homemade junk food. Homemade? Thanks to the pandemic. Junk food? Thanks to my evergreen appetite. But I, at the same time ate a lot of healthy food like milk, spinach, and nuts every day.
My original EDD was Aug 29th, but my baby wanted to conquer the world very early, and she was out by July 31st. She weighed 1.9 kgs, and we had to put her in NICU for two days. I have no breast milk either. And, once babies get used to bottlefeed, it is highly impossible for them to get accustomed to breastfeeding due to nipple confusion.
Thanks to formula feed, my baby is now 3.5 kg and 2 months old. These 2 months have been a rollercoaster ride. But trust me, we do it instinctively. Babies have the power to mould us into their world!
A tip to all expecting and new moms – Do not panic if ur child catches a cold, sneezes often or does not potty for 2-3 days. The more alarming signs would be a high fever, no urine, discolouration of lips, turning blue, and seeming dull or less active.
I think my story would help parents who are panicking. If we do not know anything about pregnancy and motherhood, with some medical advice and self-care, we can easily get through.
