A journey of first time parents……




The past few days have been very different for both your dad and I. We have been planning to have you for about 2 months now and seems like this month we have made it. I have been feeling very tired, and eating more than I would and also going to the washroom to pee a lot. My tummy is very big (I already look like as if I am 2 months pregnant) Your dad was saying maybe you will have a company with you in my tummy (a twin). I feel like vomiting a lot and just feeling very tired all the time. Left side of my stomach feels very sore. Maybe that’s where you have picked your first spot to settle. All these symptoms were too much to face not knowing if you are there or not. Therefore, your dad had bought a pregnancy test for me to check if we were expecting you.

We have done couple of these tests before but they all turned out negative (but those were done when we were not even planning for you). I was very excited to do this test. There I was, standing in the washroom with my hopes really high and very excited. Much to my dismay, the pregnancy test did not work very well. It had a malfunction somewhere & the result was not clear. I explained it to your dad, he was really sorry that the test did not work and was ready (more than ready) to buy another one. So he rushed out to buy another one. 30 mins later…he walks into the house with 4 more pregnancy tests.

So then I kept drinking lots of water so that I can do this test. I had to wait 2 mins for the result to appear…that 2 mins seemed like an hour. Then I saw the little blue line turning into a + sign. Wow… it turned out positive. You should have seen my face and your dad’s. How would you right? What am I thinking!

I was so happy as if I just accomplished the biggest complicated task in life (well it is if you think about it 🙂 I ran out of the washroom and I told your dad. He was on the phone talking to your Suntharan Chithappa. I guess your dad was able to tell by the happiness and the excitement on my face. He was very happy. The look in his eyes then told me that he kind of had a clue that this would be the result. We hugged each other and kissed each other to express our happiness and we knew that we were very ready to welcome you into our lives.

Even while getting up in the middle of the night to go to the washroom, your dad would tell me “kavanam…paaththu iranku” from the bed. He always takes good care of me and now he has you to worry about also. He is making sure I eat on time, that I don’t do a lot of work and also very careful that I don’t lift anything at all…weather its heavy or not. Both you and myself are very lucky to have your dad taking care of us. You are already so very lucky to have him care for you even way before your arrival so when I think about how he would care and love you when you arrive….just keeps me on my toes.

I told your grandparents (both). All of them were very happy.
I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow …and of course that is to confirm of your arrival.

With love,
