In Progress...

A started painting our babies nursery today! I am sooo exited! I just turned 24 weeks and its getting to feel real now. With tiny movements and occasional kicks, it finally feels like I am going to be mom. Once its ready, I will post a few pictures :)

My godh bharayi (seemantham/Indian baby shower) is coming up on 31st Aug and we have invited very close friends and of course family. My Father in law is also going to be here for our babies first ever formal celebration!

If only all dreams come true!

Last night, for the first time I had a dream about our girl. I read a lot of stories where expectant moms pour out their hearts about the wonderful dreams they had about the babies. After reading those I used to wonder why I never have any dreams or doubt if I can be a good mom or not if I do not dream about our girl.

Well, Kutty baby kinda knew this I guess. I had a dream that she is born and is perfect! The labor was painless and I hardy felt any pain even during active labor! Ha...if only all dreams come true.
She was a pro right from day one in sleeping. As soon as I put her in her crib (which my SIL generously passed on from my nephew), she falls asleep and wakes up only when she needs a feed! Anand and I couldnt believe itseems that our girl has also become a pro in feeding at right times.
She also coo's and smiles at everyone and had not made any fuss at any time in the day or night!

Best of all, she was the most beautiful baby I had ever seen! I know, every parent feels the same about their children.

I have no idea why I got this wonderful dream; I could use another such dream today as well :)

Before I forget..

As I said before, I had my 20th week ultra sound on 27th of July. I wanted to write this post so that I don't forget all about it in a few days. The ultra sound itself lasted for close to 45 minutes. Since I was lying down on my back, my tailbone started bothering me badly. So I crossed my legs and tried to lie down still.
Our girl started immediately imitating what the mom was doing! When my technician told me about that, I literally busted our laughing.

The way she told that we were having a girl was quite funny too. Anand, mom and dad were there at that time with me and she said, "see, there is nothing between her legs, so more than likely its a girl!"

Now, I only hope she takes after her dad when in comes to intelligence; no kidding.

The Shopping Mania

I am yet to see a woman who is not interested in shopping. Our baby girl is no exception. Before we found out about the gender, my colleague and I were browsing through the Babies r us book. I have noticed that she was fluttering a lot in my tummy. I didnt bother much about that though.

Couple of days ago I was talking to another friend of mine about shopping and she was fluttering wildly again. I thought it was a mere coincidence.

Day before yesterday I was taking to mom about shopping and lo! she started fluttering again! Our girl sure is turning out to be a typical shopping-loving-girl :) She is super active whenever I talk about shopping :)
