Whenever I think about my journey to motherhood, I don’t know where to start. It was just a dream once, but now I am living my dream with my little champ. Although I was married for eight years, I was not able to get pregnant. My husband and I got ourselves tested, and we had no infertility issues either. I was depressed and often approached my mom who lent me a shoulder to cry on, or I would cry in front of God, and pray hard for a baby.
However, when I just stopped doing everything I was required to do to plan a baby, I conceived in three months. I didn’t do a pregnancy test at home as I thought it might show a single line and break my heart. So, my husband took me to the doctor to get a blood test done. The report was positive! I shed tears of happiness even today when I remember that day. My entire body was shivering; tears rolled down from eyes though I did not want to cry.
Then came the day of hearing the baby’s heartbeat for the first time. It is a heavenly feeling! I was so happy that life is growing inside me. As days passed, I could feel movement – the kicks and the turns inside me. The feeling was overwhelming every single time; it is something only a mother knows.
And after so much care from of my husband, my mother, and of course myself, my little boy, Adi, my lifeline, was born in March 2020. He is ten months old now, and a very naughty child. However, I still remember him crying in front of me when he was born, and I can still feel his little lips over my cheeks. It was a divine feeling! It was then that I understood the essence of motherhood, and I am enjoying every bit of it.
