Three years into our marriage, My husband and I decided to take the plunge into parenthood.We had our usual doubts and apprehensions, money, job security and so on.But in the end all other things seemed trivial, just the thought of holding our own baby in our hands was more than enough to convince us.It gave us the strength to believe that out baby will bring his/her own fortune along and perhaps will bring us good luck as well.
And it happened, going back home from work, on the bus I felt nauseous, weak ready to pass out.I was a bit scared at these sudden rush of symptoms but I knew what it could be. I ran straight to the doctor’s office, got my blood work done and waited.The results would take 4-5 days!I could not wait any longer, went to the pharmacy, picked up a home pregnancy kit and there it was!1,2,3 and It was positive! I was going to be a mom, at this point I can not even describe what went through my heart or mind! It seemed unreal, and I cried. It felt like I was complete, sort of whole.
Over the next few minutes, as I shared the news with my husband, who was equally ecstatic, it felt simply wonderful that the news of a would be baby in the house could bring so much happiness.
Oh, did I mention that all this happened after my husband had left for India a few weeks back? So the sharing happened over the phone and skype 🙂 And so began our journey!Miles apart yet so close.
