A Letter to My Baby Girl

A Letter to My Baby Girl

Dear Anaya,

You are eight months old now, baby, but I still remember your first heartbeat. I can’t explain the feeling I had when I realised I have a life inside my womb. You know I was surprised when I found out the pregnancy test was positive. I had mixed emotions; I was happy and nervous, but your papa was so excited! I still remember his face and how emotional he was when he thought he would be a father soon.

For everybody, the pregnancy was just nine months, but for me, it was every moment. The true symptoms of pregnancy are morning sickness and nausea. I love to eat onions and garlic, but during the pregnancy days, you didn’t want to eat onions and garlic, so I resisted them as soon as I saw them.

You will love to know that I prayed to God to give me a daughter because I want to dress her up, talk with her all day, and go shopping with her. I daydreamed about the way you’d look and smile, and also wondered if your nose will look like mine or papa’s.

When you completed five months in my womb, I started enjoying my pregnancy because of your movements. Whatever I ate made you jump inside me. I always loved to talk to you, and your papa always wanted to touch my bellow to feel you move. We made plans for you, your room, your clothes, your safety, etc. Our life was going good baby, but every story has a new dramatic turn. This is how our life took an unexpected turn.

On the eighth month of my pregnancy, the doctor said both of us are not safe. She found complications. Doctors had given me 2 injections for your safety. Your papa was so worried. But, I believed in you, in your papa, myself and I believed in God. We fought for our lives, and yes, we won! Life is the same, Anaya. We can change any situation if we believe in ourselves. If we are together, we will definitely win.

I heard about motherhood from a lot of people, and it’s true that it can’t be explained in words. Thank you, beta, for coming into my life. I am the happiest and the luckiest mom. I am enjoying every moment with you, and I want to keep all your memories in my heart.

Mumma loves you, and yes, picture abhi Baki hai mere dost.
