Tossing and turning! #AtoZChallenge

Last Chapter

Sleep while you can – everyone had advised Natasha when she was spending her nights binge watching Friends series. And, she should have listened then because now sleep evades her.

If only she could lay comfortably, close her eyes and sleep uninterrupted. But, she could not ignore the yelling bladder at night and no position is comfortable to sleep. The nights are spent turning right or left. Because the baby doesn’t like either side for long.

‘Ah! When will I be able to sleep! I can’t even roll. The baby keeps kicking and poking.’, exclaimed Natasha nudging Ananth.

‘Nats, you should really ask your doctor about it. No sleep is not good for baby.’,  spoke a sleepy Ananth.

Second trimester was better, at least she could sleep more. With three months still to go, a good night’s sleep looked like a distant dream. She walked out of the room and tried to get comfortable on the couch and eventually fell asleep. Thus, another night was spent tossing and turning in hope of sleep.

Restless nights! #AtoZChallenge

Last Chapter

30 June,2015 5:00 p.m.

Ananth could reach home only by 5:00 p.m., by then it was late to reach airport in time. They had missed their flight. Natasha was furious at Ananth and unwilling to talk.

‘Why did you even go to office? You could have logged in from home and work. I don’t even get to go to a vacation now.’, Natasha spoke as she bursts into tears.

‘Nats, it’s all right. We can take a vacation even now and we will. I will make this up to you!’ Ananth was clueless as the rains had created havoc in the city. The weekend was spend in making refunds for all the bookings. His surprise may not have worked out, but his mind was racing to make other definite plans.

Natasha was upset for days and did not talk to him. Ananth was persistent in his efforts and finally convinced Natasha for a long weekend holiday.

After many restless nights, this time Ananth made sure that they went for a beach holiday.

Pregnancy brain! #AtoZChallenge

Last Chapter

‘How can I be so forgetful’, muttered Natasha to no one in particular.

Thrice in this week she had forgotten her lunch at home and had to make do from the cafeteria sandwiches. Hungry and cranky is not a good combination!

By now even her team members were teasing her about the ‘Pregnancy Brain’. Last week they had shifted their office to a different floor & on Monday Natasha was waiting for everyone at the old location. Drafting the email and forgetting to send it has become a frequent occurrence now.

‘Ah, how long will I suffer like this. I should lock myself at home and never come out’, thought Natasha.

One good thing that she can count from her Pregnancy Brain experience is brushing her teeth after every meal. Last weekend, after every meal, she involuntarily went and brushed her teeth. And, this happened four times in two days. Either she is too stressed or she is going crazy.

Even Ananth laughs at her silly mistakes now. She is tired of her carelessness but would not trade it for anything in the world. Pregnancy Brain may be a myth for many people, but for her it was a funny reminder of a new life growing.

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.

In sickness and in health! #AtoZChallenge

Last chapter

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.
