Drumroll Please….!

Last Friday, the 3rd of April, 2009 at around 8:30 in the morning, the Digital Test Stick I peed on, showed me this :

Yes, Yes, That’s right people!

I AM PREGNANT! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

I can’t seem to stop saying and thinking of that moment ever since!

The blood test from the doctor’s lab showed up with a ‘POSITIVE’ soon after.

So, its official…I have a tiny little life happening inside me right this moment, as I type!
Uh…I so can’t believe it yet..really. I have been just constantly reminding myself and feeling overwhelmingly happy every single time πŸ™‚

Now, here is the story, if you want to know:

It all started in April 2008 when my craving to have a baby took over and I seriously started thinking of having one.We both were within our reproductive age limits, we were married for more than 3 years and spent all that time together doing every single thing we loved to do – travelling being the most favorite.

From Himalayas to Kerala/Kanyakumari in India; from Newyork to California in the US, we had done all the travelling we could.To top it all, our biggest travel wish – Touring across Europe, was coming true in a few days. The tickets were ready, bags packed and the spirits high.

I discussed my mind with H and finally asked “Why not make a baby in Switzerland, while we are there?”. He was taken aback at first, to see I had thought through it so much. But, as expected from any husbands (??), he threw my request out the window saying, “Do you even realize how big that thought is? Not a joke, babe. We are all set for our BIG trip in a few days. Don’t get me all worried over this now. Let’s just have fun, okay?”

I brought it up at least 2 more times during the trip, one time being ..err..right during the ‘moment’ on our soft cozy bed in our hotel room while in Switzerland. πŸ˜€ He used the condom anyways. Sigh!.

It took me 5 months to slowly and scrupulously make him think in my terms. One evening when his cousin/best friend announced their ‘good news’, he cheered for them heartily. But, I could see he was deep in thoughts that night. He was taking his time to get there.

A couple of days later, over a cup of tea, I asked “We should plan some exciting trip next. It’s been a while since the last one, na?”
And, he said ” No more long distance travel for sometime now.”

“And, why so? ” I questioned.

“Because, you need to take good care of yourself babe. We want to have a baby right?”

I smiled. He had finally gotten there πŸ™‚

Starting that day, I hit Google with a thousand queries everyday – ‘trying to conceive’, ‘most fertile days’, ‘ovulation calendar’, ‘ dos and don’ts for couples trying to conceive’…and many many more. I devoured all info on every article and every forum I chanced upon.

With enough online knowledge up our sleeves, we set out on making a baby that month ( hehe, loved saying that). It was September 2008.

The process is so much fun, its orgasmic! Okay, that was a poor joke. But, we did enjoy it every bit πŸ˜€ From kinky clothes to candle light..from sweet talk to rough fights, I think we got pretty innovate with things. πŸ˜‰ Moreover, you got to get a little creative when you need to have sex every single day for weeks , Don’t cha? πŸ˜›

However, with every passing month, when my ‘Aunt Flow’ kept coming right at the precise date, we got bit worried. Once we completed 6 months of trying with no success, I took an appointment with my gynaec. She almost laughed and said it was too early for us to get worried. On an average only 80% of the ‘normal couples’ conceive in the first year of trying. And since I am well within the 30 year age limit, I should not even bother about the results until at least one year. She sent us home with a pat on the back and cheering ” Just have fun, no worries!”

In a couple of weeks, our India trip happened, as planned. During the one month there, I didn’t think our ‘efforts’ would be fruitful. A baby that could not be made in 6 months in a place with a perfect lifestyle, healthy diet, clean air and pure water, how would you expect to make it in 1 month in a place where every single day is insanely hectic, roads horribly polluted and overcrowded?

But hey, miracles do happen πŸ˜‰

May be it was Amma’s hand cooked meals, maybe the joy and content you feel while in presence of your family , maybe all the good vibes from visiting temples, maybe the good wishes from the loved ones or maybe just the combination of all these and more! This baby is definitely ‘Made in India’ πŸ˜€

I am five and a half weeks now. Too early to tell out the news? Hell, who cares. I am super excited and want to share it with you all anyway! πŸ™‚

We broke the news to our parents together, on a video conference the other day. Words can’t describe how happy they were. My mom almost hugged the video camera πŸ™‚

I have no symptoms (nausea, back pain or any such thing *Touch wood* ). But for the occasional craving to eat something tangy, I hardly feel pregnant!

Pray for me a little, you guys. Pray that this tiny life inside me stays put for the entire 9 months and makes it safely to this beautiful world, healthy and happy.
