Reborn as a Mother: My Journey Towards Motherhood

Reborn as a Mother: My Journey Towards Motherhood

After getting married in April 2017, I was not prepared to have a baby. Also, I had no idea how life would be after becoming a mother. As time went by, I looked at people having kids, and I developed a deep desire to become a mother. As I prepared myself for motherhood, I got pregnant in February 2018. I was immensely happy and so was my entire family. But to my misfortune, I had a miscarriage after just one month of conception. This made me depressed and sad. But then I regained courage and trusted the almighty.

With my deep faith in Him and trust in my own destiny, I conceived again in October. I was very happy and grateful to God. My entire family was elated and there was a joyous atmosphere all around me. All my family members, including my mother-in-law and husband, took great care of me. With all those previous complications, I was advised to be more cautious this time. As the months went by, my physical condition deteriorated. I suffered from extreme nausea and I could not digest anything. I never wanted to eat anything. I was scared that my baby was suffering, so I used to eat in bits and took care of my diet.

Unfortunately, I had no control over my nausea. Every time I would eat something, I ended up vomiting. As time progressed, I developed a severe hatred for different food items including various fruits and vegetables. Out of concern, my mother-in-law used to scold me for not eating healthy food. In the ninth month of my pregnancy, I developed a strange love for eating ice. Every time I would feel nauseated, I ate ice and it really helped me. Finally, the day had come when my baby would see the outer world. I was supposed to have a c-section and we had already prepared ourselves. We went to the hospital and at the stroke of 11:05 am my baby was born. The doctor told me that I have given birth to a healthy baby boy and just gave me a glimpse of him. I was longing to have him in my arms. All my family members congratulated me and celebrated this glorious moment. With my baby’s birth, I was also reborn as a mother.
