How to be prepared for your big day

Ever worried about what to carry in your hospital bag.
How to be prepared for someone you waiting to meet for 9 months.
I too had gone through all this stuff.
I had so my questions, how would I know if it's time will I be prepared or not.
Stop worrying I would suggest because you would just know when the right time is and when you are going to get those crams or if it's just a false alarm.
The best part leave it to God and time to decide when is the right time.
Let doctors decide, what to do and when what not to do.
Cues are many if it's time like water breaking, bleeding, or a cram. I had gone through bleeding.
The pain is horrible when I tell you to trust me, it's really horrible. You just want to end your pain and get over with it.
Check with your hospital or doctor if they provide clothes for the newborn, sanitary pads and any other stuff they provide, if not do carry the below stuff.
Hospital bag preparation -
•Hospital file/hospital id card/insurance papers
It's always better to keep your medical paper handy for the doctors to check on the medicines or any complications.
• A blanket for you if you are habitual of your own 
blanket
•Toileteries(toothbrush, toothpaste, hairbrush, soap, etc)
•Sanitary pad (heavy-duty maternity pads)
•Two nursing gowns/nursing nightdress
•Mobile Charger
•Slippers (might need to use the washroom)
•Socks( too keep your feet warm)
•undergarments (nursing bra, underwear large enough to hold on heavy-duty sanitary pads)
• Pillow ( you might need it if you have backache while induced pain) I had to ask for bedsheets before they gave me some extra pillows.
•Extra pair of clothes to wear while travelling back home.

Newborn's Bag

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
