When I held my girl for the first time
Reviewed by Expert panel

Nine months earlier, when I discovered that I was going to be a mother, I was ecstatic. The joy of bringing life you have created into this world is a feeling that is beyond any expression and explanation.

With this news came waves of happiness, anticipation, anxiety and so much more! I couldn’t wait for the nine months to end.

So, like every other expectant mum, I entered this beautiful phase of pregnancy and started enjoying every single moment of it. With a loving husband, caring in-laws and parents around, my pregnancy was bliss. Everything was going normally; I was very well taken care of. Most importantly, my little bud was blossoming healthily inside my tummy.Oh, what a feeling that was, feeling a little life inside you.

Sometimes I would imagine how I would react when I saw my baby’s face for the first time—would I shed tears of joy? Would I jump up and down out of excitement?

In anticipation

Though it’s a nine-month-long journey, I became a mother the moment I saw those two red lines on the pregnancy test. As my tummy grew, my exhilaration grew even stronger. I would dream of holding my little one snuggling to my chest, hearing her cry and watching her smile…Oh god I just couldn’t wait for D day!

Complications

So the wait ended, and finally the golden moment came…I went to the hospital to bring my life into this world. Unfortunately, the doctor said I would have to be operated on since there was a mild complication—a C-sec had to be done. I was terrified. But amidst all the chaos, all I could do was pray to god to take care of my little one at this moment.

The wait is over

Finally, lying on an OT table, I heard her cry for the first time, and all my pain and trepidation promptly vanished. The doctor brought my little princess closer to me and all I could do was thank god for blessing me with the most beautiful girl on this planet. Now I am a proud mom of a pretty little princess. I felt that I was reborn too, as a mother. I just want to tell my little bundle of joy that I love her to the moon and back, and although I’m imperfect, I’ll definitely try to be a perfect mum for her and by her side always.

Very nicely you have put down your felling. The moment we hear the cry even in c section we smile. The way she looks at us it feels that she is saying thank you mama for bringing me in this beautiful world. I too had a daughter who has completed 1 year recently. The way she says mama it really makes me feel awesome.
