Love comes in all forms! #AtoZChallenge

‘Ananth, don’t be a kid and stop fooling around. You are not going with me.’,chided Natasha.

‘Nats, I am already missing out so much. You can’t say no every time. I have not heard the heartbeat since so long’, replied Ananth with puppy eyes.

‘It’s just a normal routine checkup and Maa is going with me. I will record the heartbeat for you.You still need to rest at least on weekends.’, said Natasha.

This was a normal routine in Natasha’s household since last two months. Ananth’s movement was still restricted because of his surgery and he always complained about not being able to accompany Natasha for her doctor’s visit. He was trying all he could to help her with the pregnancy. She is almost half way through her pregnancy and there are numerous incidents that she could recall.

Just last week she was craving for her favorite ice cream late night and crying because she could not go out to eat it.Blame her hormones,but she was angry at Ananth for not being able to drive and take her out. Ananth very calmly ordered a home delivery for her ice cream.

Another day she was being very forgetful and was trying to open the car with her home keys. After trying for minutes she turned around to find Ananth coming with the original keys. Once when she wanted to bake a cake at home with zero ingredients available and he made a cake out of Dhokla mixture. It might not have tasted like a chocolate cake but it’s the best she ever had.

She cannot even forget the time when she had forgotten to turn off the gas stove while leaving for work in the morning. When she had returned in the evening, the house smelled of gas. She had never seen him so furious. He might not speak but she understood his concern even when he was angry.

All these incidents might look small to others, but every effort counts. It made her fall in love all over again with Ananth. It’s rightly said that love comes in all forms, silence and words alike.

My fault?

Source: Pexel

I am a child who loves to go to school and play with her friends. I am the one who waits for her daddy to come home and pamper me. I am a happy child trying to enjoy my childhood.

I am a young girl trying to complete my education. I am trying to learn as much as I can. I had to fight at home to take admission in university.

I am a women trying to be independent. I am doing my best to get the recognition that I deserve. I am investing same hours at work as any other person would.

I am a mother living for her child. I live to hold them, love them, cuddle them. I spend my days and nights worrying about my child. Watching them grow brings me all the joy I need.

I am a grandmother who loves to spoil her grandkids. I knit sweaters for thwm and feed them all delicacies I can. I wait for their phone calls and summer vacations.

I am not creating a havoc in your life. I am living a simple life to fulfill my needs and desires. Then why, every second of the day, one amongst many like me is tortured, raped and killed! Did I do you any harm? Is it my fault that I exist? I am even killed before I take birth. Why do I suffer? What is my fault?

This is a break from my original posts, but I could not stop myself from penning down my thoughts. Enough is enough. I have to raise a voice now and hope you will too.

After weeks of hassle, things were now looking up. Natasha’s parents were staying with them for time being. She was nearing the end of her first trimester and already planning how she would be spending her maternity break.

One moment she can be elated and in the next moment she would be bawling her eyes out over the events of last month. As it is, she suffered enough mood swings without being pregnant and now she was a walking pile of emotions. She would start crying at advertisements or start smiling at small things like getting an ice cream. And, she was told this is just the beginning!

She had not disclosed about her pregnancy in office and was still contemplating the future. To say or not to say summed up her daily struggle. She did not look pregnant but still she felt pregnant. She was unsure of how her colleagues would react. Her friends at work would be pretty excited or maybe she will get silent stares.

Things took a crazy turn when she broke down in office once after having a bad day. Back to back meetings and deliverable drove her mad. She loves her work and office but the emotions are running to high. And most of her meetings are spent running between the conference room and the loo. It would be better if she shifted her desk next to the toilets. At least it would save some time.

Maybe she can send out a mailer ‘I am expecting’ or sing it on top of her voice or paste the ultrasound scan photos on her boss’s desk! Too many thoughts and too much time to declare herself pregnant. Maybe she should just keep it simple!

Juggling life! #AtoZChallenge

Natasha was numb, she was already scared for Ananth and now her child’s life was in danger. She was trying her best to stay positive, but the extent of events was taking a toll on her. A week back she was living her dream and now the life has come to a standstill.

The doctor was checking fetal heartbeat with Doppler,’Natasha take deep breaths, you need to relax.’

‘Fetal heart rate is strong at 148. We will be performing an ultrasound to be on safer side.’

‘Okay, do all that you need to. The baby should be fine.’, replied Natasha.

‘The baby is developing distinct facial features and seems to be doing fine. As I have said earlier the heartbeat is strong and you can hear for yourself.’, confirmed the doctor.

No other sound was as melodious as her child’s heartbeat for Natasha. The doctor had decided to monitor her health for coming 12 hours and advised her bed rest for next two weeks.

Their parents were worried, as three lives were at stake. They were prepared for worst. The night was the longest one. None had slept.

Natasha wanted to be with Ananth, his words could calm her. Her thoughts were scary and she had nightmares about losing her child. She wanted to hear from Ananth that everything would be all right, but today he was fighting his own battle.

After the night full of agony, doctor declared that all was well and discharged her. Ananth’s doctor also gave him a go ahead to be released from hospital.

By evening they were both at home with an eerie silence around them. They were facing an uncertain future where juggling life continues.

In sickness and in health! #AtoZChallenge

Ananth is recovering well and will be discharged in a day or two. Natasha had not left him alone even for a second in these five days. She had held his hand when he got up on his feet for the first time after surgery.

The days were tiring but Natasha was elated to see Ananth healthy and safe. She was thankful that the morning sickness had subsided by now. Her food intake was being monitored by her mother.

During all the chaos Natasha had missed her doctor’s appointment this month. She was two months pregnant but still cannot believe it.

Its fifth day of their stay in hospital, and Natasha was feeling dizzy since morning. She was thinking of going home tonight as Ananth was also feeling better now.

‘…Natasha! Wake up! Get her some water to drink…’

‘…The nurse is coming…’

Natasha woke up with a jolt and realized that she had fainted. She was surrounded by her parents and hospital staff.

The doctor was called in who examined her and instructed the nurse, ‘Give her Susten 100 via IV. She is bleeding, we need to shift her to a different room now’.

Before Natasha could comprehend she was wheeled out of Ananth’s room and taken to maternity wing of the hospital.

‘Is my child okay? Is there a heart beat?’, enquired Natasha.

‘We are taking you for an ultrasound scan to check for foetal well being.’

Natasha had not realized but all the stress had affected her health. She was keeping her fingers crossed for her child’s well-being.

Irony of her life, they were both in the hospital together undergoing treatment. Even the fate knew they would be always together whether in sickness or in health.
