The Third Trimester

Mowgli and I have made it to the third and last installment of the story of our birth. no, its not a type. It is the story of our birth, because with Mowgli, I will be born again. The precious baby of the family will become Mommy. :).

The transition so far has been seamless. However I do panic from time to time.
Whats on my mind:
* I really want to get the second bedroom ready. Warm and cozy. More for Mowgli's Patti than Mowgli himself :). I can't wait for her to get here. I wish Siya and jachi could be here too.
* I have wonderful wonderful friends who make it all look soo easy and natural :) that what I need for Mowgli is the least of my worries.
* Thrice the joys cannot account for the one that should have been. The one person I want in that labor room is my own Patti.
* I have decided to skip the birthing classes. Coolboy says, Cool!.
* I often look at Coolboy and wish Mowgli is just like him. Of all the years I have known him, I think I have fallen in love with him in the last few weeks all over again.
Coolboy says, Cool!
* I am finally gaining weight at a pound a week. Doc is happy. I want Mowgli to be a nice big healthy baby but I want to have to lose as little weight as possible later. Its a tricky situation and one that I have no control over. Well also that I thought I would obsess more about my weight considering how hard i worked to lose it in the first place, but it turns out its one of those things thats on the bottom of the priority list right now. So the mantra really is relax and indulge :) !
* I find I have suddenly developed a sweet craving or sorts. Coolboy is in charge of making sure I don't over do it. I cheat him by eating candy at work :) instead of my apple sometimes :)!!!

Life is good with Mowgli on his way.

PS: Junnu asks "Chitthi can you come and stay with me in my house for a thousand days?". Thousand is probably as large a number as his 3.5 year old brain can count. I want to hug him forever. I cant wait for Mowgli to meet him, the boy who made me realize how precious it is to be mommy.


  • Awww... I am sure Junnu and Mowgli are going to be best buddies. Just like their moms.
