It is the magic which happens inside when the baby goes from a single cell to develop into a complete human inside the mother womb. I could feel my baby inside me and see his growth and development just with the help of feelings and his movement. I was the centre of attraction at my home and within the social circle. I was given all kinds of fruits to intake them during this period so that the baby remains healthy and strong. This period was also marked as period of divinity and spirituality for me. I would visit the temple and pray on regular basis. My mother also inspired me to read the Hindu Gita book so that the baby gets the right values before birth and it can help me to relax and divert my mind to think positive and stay happy. My dietician would visit me regularly and guide me on the things to take and precautions of all types. I had made a point to stay at home for most of the time as it was my first experience of pregnancy and I wanted to be extra safe. Sometimes I had many scary thoughts in my mind and this would make me worry about it. I would often wake up midnight and then my husband would hold my hand and helped me to relax. It was his support which made all this phase little bit comfortable.
My mother also gave me a book full of jokes and funny stories to read and would do things so that I could remain happy all the time. Her focus would be to make me in think positive and never think about my weight or body. I had to avoid eating at fast food restaurant and missing yummy food for some time but it all ended after few months. I have also experienced a sudden trend changed and now woman are more health conscious and want to maintain their physique after birth of the child. It is natural and nothing wrong with it and even many creams have come into picture to help the mother during the stage of pregnancy to get rid of stretch marks and other common skin issues. The best one of them is using the Bio Oil enriched with essential vitamins and other things which makes the perfect formula to fight for the skin problems. I would summarize this post with idea that every woman should enjoy this time which leads to birth of another life.
