**Special thanks to Rosetta Ann Photography for capturing the precious moments.**
I know my blog has been really slow for the last 7 months. (For the new readers, here’s why)
I think my loyal readers will be happy today that I am posting something personal after a very long time. Keep on reading and scrolling for my story and some more pictures.
My initial plan was to schedule some articles & videos before my due date. But I went to labor 5 weeks early leaving most of my works pending.
When I was in labor, my thoughts should have been centered on the well-being of my child but my first thought was- “I have at least 50 products pending reviews!” I was almost hysteric that I won’t be able to meet the deadlines and work commitments I had made with various companies.
Even after her birth I felt guilty. The uncertainty of my work, the sleepless nights with the premature baby, the unwanted weight gain and my same old chronic pain made my days longer and nights darker. I was depressed & angry at everything and everyone around me.
Gradually I overcame the dark feelings and learnt to manage the baby in spite of my difficulties. I have to say I am still learning the ways of motherhood, but it’s always a learning process, isn’t it?
Right now I am the heaviest I have ever been…. my clothes do not fit anymore and whenever I try to put on something old (or new) I feel like screaming & crying.
I am also really tired, hurting 24/7 and only a good amount of concealer can hide out the under eye circle. (Thank God for Clé de Peau Beauté!)
THINGS I HAVE LEARNT SO FAR….
- You can’t control everything, specially when you have a little one.
- Babies are small but they require your 100% energy & effort, sometimes even your 100% won’t be enough!
- Time management is everything!
- Coffee is going to be your best friend.
- At the end of the day; all the sleeplessness, tiredness, pain and trouble is going to fade away when your child looks into your eyes and gives a big heart warming smile.
Here is the best part of the whole experience:
My daughter is 7 months old now and she is getting more and more interactive day by day. I can’t ignore the fact how happy she makes me feel even though my shoulder and arms hurt like hell when I am holding her.
Truth to be told, You won’t know your true strength & endurance before having a child. I am discovering so many things about myself everyday and these are making me a stronger person.
I can’t say I am the best in everything, but I am the better version of old me!
Now get ready to enjoy the pictures!
QUICK DETAILS ABOUT THE OUTFIT(S):
My main focus behind picking the outfit was comfort. For my girl this coral dress was perfect, as it’s really soft and breathable. For me, I chose comfort with style. I was looking for a white top which would be forgiving to my *midsection*. Paired with the colorful harem pant and the vintage statement necklace, I found my match!
Baby dress: H&M
My top: Jersey Top in White (H&M)
Necklace: Freedom Statement Necklace in Navy (Happiness Boutique)
