How it Feels to be a Mom and a Daughter
I belong to a city of UP, Ghaziabad, and am 31 weeks pregnant. Being pregnant is such a beautiful and pleasant journey that can’t be explained in words, but I’ll still try to write it down. It was the month of November. My hubby was in Allahabad for official work and I was feeling very uneasy without him at home. I couldn’t understand what was happening inside me. When he came back after three days, I hugged him tightly and started crying, like a child. A week later, I took a pregnancy test as I had missed my periods of that month. And surprise, the test was positive. It was unbelievable, and I was so happy. It felt like I had entered a new stage of life with my hubby. From that day onwards, his way of caring for me changed. I completed three months of pregnancy with all the love, care, and support of my hubby. My younger sister was to get married on 23rd Feb, and we planned on travelling to Meerut to attend it. Suddenly, on 10th Feb, my mother had a brain haemorrhage. I was extremely upset and worried. On 16th Feb, the doctor informed us that her condition was critical and nothing could be done. 2 days later, on 18th Feb, which was our anniversary, we shifted our mother to Gangaram Hospital, Delhi. As I’m following Garbh Sanskar from the starting of my pregnancy, through YouTube, I felt as though my child gave me support in the womb. It was my child who made me feel that his/her Nani will be fine. On 25th Feb, we brought my mother home. During that time, I truly felt the similarity between being both, a child and a mother, which is hard to express. I was feeding my mother like I would my baby. The days passed with lots of struggles, and it was the fifth month of my pregnancy, during which my baby started slowly kicking. It was a very joyful feeling for me, which I shared with my mother, saying ‘you are going to become a Nani for the first time’. Lastly, I just want to say that I felt the relationship of being a mother and daughter during this time, with lots of emotional moments.
