OMB – 35 weeks!

Oh my Bump! is my weekly chronicling of this little pie baking away, and a sharing of the ebbs and flows of being two at a time. Its a wonderful journey of rising and falling hormones, the beating of two hearts, and a huge sea of change to the body. It’s love and life all the way. 


35 weeks! Now showing quite apparently I do get those sympathetic looks and polite questions from passer-bys and random acquaintences. With the baby expanding and taking up all space, the internal organs seem to be rather cramped with no space to even keep food down. Such are the intricacies of concocting a while new human being! While a much elaborated conflict resolves in my head this week, I have gotten utter clarity in my being. It’s the season of cheer and more so the season for some reason and introspection. Looking inwards and hence onwards is all the ammunition we need in life. Life as we know it is much too wise and can conveniently sort itself out rather abundantly. And that is itself a reason to be jolly!
