Yes dear so what if you can’t go on rides or are forbidden to even think of amusement parks or discos. There is so much to life. Go shopping with Captain Adorable for maternity gowns with soft laces, comfortable foot wear and sturdy doormats. Don’t forget some tangy candies, those mouth watering muffins and a tamarind bite.

From fluttering butterflies to major twists and turns … you’ve come a long way dear.
Ah! Rest and take it easy. Why don’t you hum and sing to your baby? Yo! Tune in to your personal and natural frequency and sing to your heart’s content. Enjoy being a radio jockey, singer and music composer. On a serious note music, friendly chats with friends, breathing exercises ( as prescribed by your doctor), books etc keep you occupied in a very constructive way and give immense pleasure in free time.
As you progress well; you learn to come to terms with the slight uneasiness and your changed physical form. Just remember, you are the most beautiful mumma; lovely lady, who glows from her inner beauty.

As from now on you prepare yourself for the birth of joy; don’t hesitate to ask your doctor for tips and guidance to overcome nervousness that shows up at times. On a lighter note … it takes nine months to download a baby. It’s time to say bye for now….you will hear from me soon… till then … Stay tuned to your music channel as your baby croons to you:
“ Oh!Mumma! Oh! Mumma! I just can’t wait,
To feel your arms and be your roommate,
Ah! Daddy will put me on his shoulder to sleep,
I’ll snuggle in the hollow of his neck and peep,
To see you laugh and jump around
As dad would hold me and go round and round
It’s going to be fun all the way
As my grandparents would dote on me everyday
Mumma, don’t be nervy and tense
God is tuned in, we just need to sense.”
