A rose for you Mumma

Betu has been asking me for buying him clay for almost a week now, reminding me everyday.

Today his papa finally bought him a box. And he made this lovely rose and gave it to me saying "This is for you Mumma!"

I love you my jaan.

You are about 3 and 1/2 inches

I was very excited to read about the developments in you in the past week. You have learnt to emote - squint, frown, grimace, smile...Wow! Lets see what expression you give me at the next ultrasound.

You have also learnt to pee and may be how to suck your thumb as well.

I worry about the nutrition you are getting from me sometimes as I'm not able to eat much still as the nausea and vomiting continues. I end of throwing up my food approx. once a day. The day I don't, I feel so happy and good.

We do not have a maid and a permanent cook currently and your Papa has been taking really good care of me. He doesn't let me cook or do any of the house chores. The day the temporary cook doesn't come in, like today, he cooks and packs my lunch for me so that I don't have to eat the outside food. And must say, he has learnt to cook really well.

I'm hoping the placenta has moved up a bit in the past week and its perfectly fine at the end of 17 weeks.

You grow up nice and well bachhu.

Love from your Bhaiyya, Papa and Mumma...muaahh!

You are about 3 inches

Hi Shona baby.

We all got to see you on Friday evening. You gave the doctor a tough time to complete the scan as you were moving around so much. By the time she was done with entering data, you would have moved from the position.

Once she was done with her measurements and noting down the required points she showed you to us, me, your bhaiyya and papa. You were moving around a lot and swaying your arms and legs. You waved a "hi" with full hand open. Your bhaiyya was so ecstatic and asked in amazement if the baby (you) can see him.

Doctor told us that you are growing up fine inside. And everything is just fine except that I've a low lying placenta for which she asked me to not walk or stand or exert too much. So next 4 weeks I would be strictly following these instructions.

You are the size of a fig

Hope you are doing well my baby. I will probably get to see you again this weekend or maybe the next.

You are more than 1.5 inches long and almost fully formed. You would now soon be able to open and close your hands in fists. Some of your bones have started to harden. Although you are moving around a lot inside but because of your small size I will not be able to feel it at least for 2 more months.

My nausea has been really bad since the past week. I do not feel like eating anything. So many times I skip my dinner. Although its a sign that all is well with you, I still am sick of being sick :(

Don't grow up so fast my baby!

I know you turned 7 three days ago. I know you are growing up but don't grow up so fast my jaan. Today your schools started after the session break and your timings changed from 8:30 AM to 7:30 AM. It was a little rushy today as we still have to get used to this one hour early timing. I asked you what you want for breakfast. You matter of factly said "Poha" which remains your favourite since the past 3 years.

After I had gotten you ready, I was about to rush to make your breakfast. You stopped me and said in such a mature tone "Poha mein time zyaada lagega na..aap mujhe bread butter hi de do." I was so touched by your concern and to see you talking like such a grown up mature boy.

I know its not a recent thing. I've seen you acting so much more mature then your age and it brings a lump in my throat. I love you my sweetheart! I love you so much!
