Wishful Thinking

Being an Indian, I do not wear as many Indian dresses as I should. However this past weekend, I wore one of the dresses gifted by my mom. (Thanks mom, love you!).
As the pregnancy is progressing, my discomforts are also increasing. The ‘special assistance’ needed in getting up, lying down, tying up shoes etc. is so inconvenient. I may not look huge in my pictures, but I feel HUGE. Seriously. And if you trust the scales, so far I’ve gained 22 pounds (10 kgs) since becoming pregnant (not bad.. eh!!). So obviously, I’m bound to feel gigantic. And in these remaining 7 weeks, baby is expected to gain more weight (fat), so let’s see how that goes!
Well, truth be told, I’m tired.
Tired of being pregnant.
Tired of looking for someone to tie my shoes for me.
Tired of not being able to workout.
Tired of having to take breaks and slow down every now and then.
Tired of huffing and puffing like an 80 year old.
Tired of the frequent bathroom visits. Sometimes its false alarm, which makes it even more annoying!
Tired of the back pain.
Tired of just feeling tired.
I just want these 40 weeks to go by fast and the baby to pop out. On time ofcourse. No, I don’t want her to come ‘early’. I just want these last few weeks to ‘fly’!
Is that possible? Do wishes come true? Please say yes!

P.S. Completed 33 weeks of pregnancy today.
P.P.S. Thanks to my father in law for taking these bomb pictures of us. Thanks Dad!

  1. You are beautiful, and your smile shows that impatience with a few more weeks. They will fly by and go so slow and so will the rest of your life. I remember being in just those pregnant shoes and dealing with a life out of control. I do not see fear in your eyes. May you and the baby be healthy and happy when it arrives. May your husband keep giving you back rubs and cold drinks.

  2. I had all the problems but somehow I really enjoyed the last trimester walking around like a penguin.. I still remember (rather we both do) the time we went to watch Queen in my 36th week after a gynae visit.. All the other audience walked ten paces away from me seeing my huge belly lest they hurt or step on me.. It was so funny.. Even an elderly couple literally jumped away from my path 😂😂😂
