OMB – 36 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. 


36 weeks! The time to pop begins now and lasts for the whole month. The final weeks of pregnancy is almost like a flashback and I can’t help but reflect on all  the whole nine months. It is but a spiritual journey to have a baby, to be a Mom! However I have learnt several lessons over the last couple of months, some bitter truths and other sweetest facts. The quotes that stuck with me are one, that if you have good thoughts they shine like sunbeams through your face and you will always look lovely and two, enthusiasm is the electricity of life! Armed with good thoughts and enthusiasm, life is but sheer joy. Such moments of relaxation and reflection further make one’s interests in life rather clear. There is nothing like sheer objectivity to know your mind, and there is no greater power than the knowledge of one’s mind! Apart from architectural work, I’d like to travel to one new country every year, be active every single day, fill my head with good thoughts that shine through my face and arm myself with electrifying enthusiasm on the majority of moments. While I now brace in body and mind for one of the greatest miracles of life, am suddenly feeling very wise. The strong let go and accept life, control is the respite of the weak. So while I digest all the revelations that relaxation have brought to me, there is one other scientific fact that I’d like to share. It has been studied that a relaxed person cannot experience pain. How wonderful then. Instead of resisting lets relax into life, at its every stage brimming with good thoughts and electrifying enthusiasm! Godspeed to all of us.
