I swear I really intend to post about stuff other than my baby’s weekly and monthly updates. It’s just that just when I think I have figured a schedule out for my baby and that now she will stick to it, she laughs at my plans or cries her lungs out and after that, I … More Baby Update: 18 Weeks Old
Dear Nikita, This is future you, exactly one year from now. I know that you’re trying to get pregnant, I know what’s about to follow and how you’ll feel about it. So I just thought I’d warn you about a few lot of things and also tell you what you will enjoy during a major … More Dear Nikita: A Letter to my pre-pregnant Self.
With only around 5-6 weeks left till Baby Bear’s arrival, we ought to start thinking of baby names. But I am soooo over looking through a website or going through a book of baby names because that’s so normal and regular. I wanted to see if there was another place where I could … More 6 Unconventional Resources for Baby Names
Oh my, the last weekly update almost EIGHT WEEKS ago! Darn! This means even if I club two weeks into one post I’ll have to do four posts! And that’s a lot of backlog to clear. So this time I’m going to club four weeks into one post for this one and the next one, … More The weeks that were | Weeks 27-30
We’ve believed it to be true for years now because the answer was the same every time. The ‘Gold Chain Theory’ – where you put a ring or a pendant on a gold chain and lift it off a girl’s palm – according to which, if the pendant turns in circles, it means she’ll have … More It’s all on me, now.
So basically, the lack of any activity on this blog and barely any activity on other ‘Mamma Bear’ social media says quite a bit about how busy I have been. Writing here has been on my mind constantly, but I have so many things that I’ve been thinking about that somehow, posting here did not … More The weeks that were | Weeks 25 & 26
And once again, I’m combining entries for two weeks partly because I wasn’t focussed enough to keep up with the blog schedule and partly because I was actually busy doing stuff. In any case, in keeping with the format of the previous post, here’s how the last two weeks of my pregnancy were. WEEK #23 … More The weeks that were | Weeks 23 & 24
I’ve had a pretty busy last two weeks which is pretty clear considering the fact that there have been no blog posts, no tweets or Instagram updates. As a result, I haven’t documented the last two weeks of my pregnancy. So I’m doing that now and I thought instead of doing two separate posts and … More The weeks that were| Weeks 21 & 22
Well, aren’t we a few days late!? I usually post this on Monday and have another post up by Wednesday. But it’s Thursday today and I’m still working on the week that was. I think I jinxed my streak of productivity after I bragged about it last week. To make up for this delay, I … More The week that was | Week 20
We went to the doctor hours after the pregnancy test showed a positive. But since I was only 4 weeks and 1 day along, the doctor suggested that we wait two more weeks to be able to see something clearly in the ultrasound. During that first visit, she asked me if I was experiencing any … More The first Look
I’m so excited to be writing the second post about the week that was (first, here) and this week, I took notes. I know that’s crazy, but I’ve never admitted to being ‘normal’, have I? Anyway, since the post I wrote the previous week was the first one of its kind on this blog, I … More The week that was | Week 19
Wow! 18 weeks complete? On one hand it seems like it’s been a long 18 weeks (which it has) but on the other, it feels like nothing when I realise I have at least 20 more weeks to go 😦 I know I should cherish this time as it is the last few weeks months … More The week that was | Week 18
