This blog is about my journey of motherhood. It talks about my transformation from a carefree girl to a hands on mommy. It captures all the beautiful memories my little one has given me in the span of two years and also how I have evolved as a person. With this blog I want to help all the new mommies out there who have just began their beautiful phase of motherhood.
My journey of motherhood began from the day I came to know I have conceived and now when my daughter is turning two, I look back and cherish all the lovely memories. I still remember the day I came to know about my pregnancy, it was an altogether different feeling. The whole idea of a new life nurturing in my womb brought tears of happiness in my eyes.
Visits to the hospital for regular checkups were both exciting and scary for me at the same time. Excitement to hear the heartbeat of my little one and fear whether the baby is meeting all the developmental milestones or not. Both me and my doctor were trying for a normal delivery but I had to undergo an emergency c-sec as my daughter had passed meconium. The moment I held my daughter for the first time, I felt truly amazing and this feeling cannot be penned in words.
I had hired a maid to help me but unfortunately she did not turn up. I was really scared of managing the baby all by myself as everything was so new for me but trust me whatever God does is for our good. Taking care of all her needs right from feeding her to giving her a massage to bathing her made me day by day a confident mommy. I have always been a carefree girl but after entering into this beautiful phase of my life, I was transformed into a responsible hands on mommy. My mother would often say she still can’t believe I am the same girl who just went with the flow but now is so particular about each and everything regaridng my little one.
To all those new moms out there, just go with the flow my dear and enjoy each and every moment of this amazing journey because this time will not come back. Do what you feel what is right for your child. Follow your heat and don’t worry about people judging you. I have been through this phase and I know how much pressure a new mom has to face. Just focus on your baby and you will be all set. Everyday you will learn something new from your little one. One thing I learnt from my daughter is patience. I have read about the concept of gentle parenting online and how many parents are following this concept across the globe. In a span of two years, one thing I have realised as a mom that I have to work at the same pace as my little one and that too with lot of patience. There are times when I completely lose my cool but then again I start fresh.
No matter how much my baby troubles me throughout the day, at night when she cuddles me with her warm hugs and showers her love on me; I feel on top of the world and truly Blessed. Motherhood is indeed a priceless gift.
