Time flies fast.. faster..

Suddenly, things have changed for me.

9 months seemed like a looooong loooonnnggg time. But this last week, my doc has completely "transposed"  my world.. if you get what I mean..

I have started taking insulin and just last week, she dropped a bombshell on me. We will deliver you in the 37th week due to this reason, she said. I just stared at her. I couldn't say anything. I was flabbergasted, which is also a mild term for what I am feeling still.

Now for those of you who do not know, my due date was March 2nd. So in my mind, I have been thinking and planning for 1.5 months more. But now my dates are likely to be closer to mid Feb. And that has completely thrown me off balance.

For most of you, it maybe silly. But damn it, we haven't bought our car yet. I don't know what to do with work. What about maid? Absolutely everything on the list is "yet to be done". And no, I cannot be prosaic about it. Yaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrgggghhhh

Anyway, deep breath. One thing at a time.


More confusion - now I have lost weight ( about a kg) as I was not well for sometime. And haven't gained that back. A big issue as per my doc. Till now everyone was after my life to follow "the diet". I have gestational diabetes for which they prescribe a diet. Its not so much about cutting down as it is about avoiding certain food items, mostly whatever you love.

Till the day before, the diet mattered. Yesterday was when the doc gave me an earful. Now everyone says, eat. To hell with the diet. Your weight is too low. Don't starve yourself, they say. But am not starving. I feel full most of the times I try to tell them. But no one is listening.

My mind cannot adjust to all this.


Working from home is sooooooooooooo boring. Nothing to do besides work.


This cough is making me mad. I cannot sleep on my side anymore. Someone please take this weight off me. I want to sleep on my back, which incidentally I never did much earlier, but ask someone to tell you not to do something and irrespective of whether you like it or not, you will crave for it.


Last weekend was nice. I shopped. I like shopping when one gets everything at the same place. We bought :

3 sets of salwaar kameez - 2 for my mom to gift to me on god bharai day (she gave me money as you wont get anything as nice in Kerala), 1 for my sis in law

4 saris - for the aunts who came to visit me

Bangles from Jaipur - 2 sets of 8 bangles for me (this is even though I don't wear bangles, but I was too attracted to it), 5 sets of 2 kadas (for me, my sis, sis in law, mom, MIL), 1 set of 8 bangles for my niece.

3 pairs of pretty earrings

2 Ganeshas for home (one huge one)

New cheap curtains for my room

And I was so happy!!!!!!!!!!!


For my god bharai 4 saris got added to my stash. Thankfully the ceremony was short and peaceful. Phew!!


No one understands my anguish at time flying past.. least of all A. The more am trying to spend time with him, the more the no of things coming up his way / people want him to be involved in. Damn it!!


Yesterday, watched Asianet filmfare awards for 5 mins. Dhanush came and sang Kolaveri. That guy is so down to earth. He said things like "please don't embarrass me by comparing me to any singer... not with so many great actors/ singers sitting here.. this is a hit by mistake.. " Then they made him sing the song.. he played along and said.. now you know how much technology helps people like us. Really really really sweet chap, no airs around him. I quite liked him.


I am going to watch Agneepath next weekend. Come what may. I think it will be a hit. Everyone who is shown in the trailer looks awesome.. Hrithik Roshan, Sanjay Dutt, Priyanka Chopra. And don't you just love Chikni Chameli!!!

Hang in there! Btw, 2 weeks early isnt too bad specially now that you have a heads up. We were also 37th week baby n had no idea. Ur much better off, just force urself to think that way. :)

Moonshine said...

@Knife Thanks!!

@mommie 3 weeks ahead of time!!! Should be closer to 10th Feb or something. I dont know what is worse : knowing or not knowing. Till now I was ok. But little by little paranoia setting in.

mêlée said...

there is so much going on with you, but I think you are doing pretty fine. So yeah prepare yourself and all the best!
yours will be valentine baby!! :D

Moonshine said...

@melee thanks for the vote of confidence!!!!Though I dont feel as confident!! I hope its not a valentine's day baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Scarlett said...

I can't empathise but I can sympathise. As if having to go through the delivery process isn't bad enough in the first place, they moved it ahead!! I wish I could come down for it, but since I can't, all the best.

Scarlett said...

I WILL call you as well, of course ;-(

It just occured to me that you won't be able to go to watch movies once your baby is born! Well, not at least you have someone at home to look after the baby or you & A decide to go for movies separately :(

the-mommie said...

Good GOD!! DEEP BREATH EVERYONE!!! I know how scary it is right now, but take it from someone who's been there, it really is going to be ALRIGHT! And you WILL have a life even after the baby's here! No more frowny faces puhhhhleeeez! *hugz* :D

Moonshine said...

@Scarlett Tell me about it!! I am bordering on paranoia actually!!

On the movies bit and all... I know a few friends who go, including mommie actually. And since the plan is for someone to be there, I intend to make full use of it. :) When are you going to come down!!

@mommie Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

moony said...

Heyy Hey! its ok, i can see its the pre-delivery jitters! I am sure everything will just go fine..Wish you a healthy delivery and a wonderful healthy baby! :)

Bluestocking said...

I think it's okay to worry a would be strange otherwise :-) but everything will be fine in the end, since you have your family and friends with you. Take care :-)
PS: I think Valentine's Day baby might be fun ;-)

Moonshine said...

@moony Thanks a ton. I guess one can never be mentally prepared for this no matter what!

@Bluestocking Thanks! But fun V day baby?? Fun for others I think!! :)) Given my luck, thats when it will happen too!!!!
