Eat for two?

A most common phrase I heard was during my pregnancy was you should eat more as you eating for two.
Thanks to my doctors is all I can say.
Pre-delivery I was 43 which then changed to 65 in those 9 months.
It's an old saying eat for two, what I followed was on my doctor's say of course.
Eat to your hunger, let your hunger decide how much you should eat.
Have small meals or snacks at small intervals.
You don't need extra calories intake, you definitely need extra nutrients in your diet, it doesn't mean adding more calories.
Post-delivery I had lost 12 kg in a week all thanks to breastfeeding.
When we say we feel like eating sweet or something else it's just your body's way of demanding they are getting short off some vitamins or some other calories.
You might feel like eating chalk or mud it's just the body way of asking for more calcium.
Take on queues eat and treat yourself with what you feel like eating don't think of your weight gain.
Enjoy your beautiful journey of being a mother, relax and enjoy it.
Allow people around you to pamper you, let your inlaws, husband treat you as beautiful princess.
Go for evening walks carry a water bottle, satisfy all your needs😝.
Listen to music, eat, laugh, smile do whatever you feel like.
Enjoy your baby moments, count the kicks.
Let your family feel the kicks and you just absorb the happiness around you.
Get yourself a massage, pedicure, manicure and just relax.
Trust me when I say these moments won't ever come back.
Live them and enjoy them, every minute of it.
You will do some dieting some other time.
Leave the dieting part for some other years.
What you just need to keep in mind is about eating healthy and drinking lots of water with some exercise.
You don't need to eat for two you need to just be careful with your diet to eat healthy and nutritional.
Pregnancy increases your taste buds do satisfy them, with keeping doctors advice in mind.
Happy parenting.Happy motherhood.

Lockdown:Father -Son bonding

This pandemic might be tough for parents and caregivers due to lots of reasons, managing household, children, office and whatnot. Living in a metro city doesn’t give you much time with your family. Working parents are not able to give much time to their kids or themselves. So this lockdown is considered as a boon even after so many cons and other days to day challenges. We look at it with the eyes of a father. They are able to take care and look at the progress of their child, achieving milestones etc. The phrases we hear from them is acha use ye bhi atta hai(he knows this as well), he knows this Woowww!! He just said papa or he just took his first step towards me. So many awe moments and their bonding I have seen. My son worships his dad, he follows him everywhere in the entire house. As a mother I have stepped down one step, just to see them bonding, loving, caring for each other.  Not that we have not faced many problems, not that this pandemic has not given us challenges, but the d

Motherhood-which noone told you about

Those two red lines change your world upside down. Happiness and fear which takes place with total excitement. Just someone doesn't tell you, what all it comes with. Your mother who you feel is very healthy or has so many health issues were just given by you. Which she just accepted it happily and lovingly without complaining about it to you ever. She was as beautiful as now just with maintained body weight without even going to a gym. So pregnancy never tells you nor someone never tells you, your body is never going to be same ever. The wasit which was always cherished and proudly fitted into your skinny jeans won't be able to fit in for 9 months or may be never after that. Sleepless nights deciding to sleep on the left side or right side is what is the struggle on. As the months pass the need to urinate increases,  ever-increasing need to use the washroom. The hormonal changes which are at the highest and strongest point in your whole life are going to make you cry at any poi
