I just now saw an old picture of mine taken around 9 years ago at the campus of D office.And I looked so thoughtful...which is kind of strange since I had a job,I had work( though times were tough) at that time due to recession and the picture reflected all of those things.After 9 years here I am without a a full time job for the past 4 years, expecting my second kid in couple of weeks and I look almost the same, somber , thoughtful and very normal old self.Wonder if life is attitude or just your ability to hide what is going on in life and give a cheerful impression.

..and we tried to make the best of the day in spite of the blocked up nose and run down spirits.I did zero cooking and the day was well spent with family.It feels strange when you are sitting with your family and hardly have anything worthwhile to say to them.Except the whole time you head is brooding with the thoughts of the cold running in the nose and if it would be passed on to the baby.And the other thought that was bothering me today was how i was not able to recollect the names of film actors and movies.Is this forgetfulness because of pregnancy or because the body is hinting on something else. They say pregnancy triggers some things in body..i hope the forgetfulness is not one of them.
Never in my life have I fascinated doctors but after seeing the lifestyle of all the doctors and their families in NJ, i really envy them now.

Trying to take care of a sick kid without getting myself sick again.

It is a bit strange how I write a few lines in my blog only after reading some one else's blog. Can i collect my thoughts only after this? Only after some reading? Even now if you look from the back you cannot guess that I am going to be 35 weeks soon.But still I patted myself for managing this feat and not driving others crazy.Added to that the house arrest of the last couple of weeks.I hope the baby is not grumpy like me, being born the middle of winter.Poor thing .He is the last thing I think about in a day.

It felt kind of sad when my deceased relative sister told that she is managing a day by avoiding to think about the deceased.For some one who lost a father, I can tell only one thing.Just talk about them. That's the way they want to be remembered.And that time is the best healer.

For some moments yesterday i thought my 9 month long tryst was almost over and it was just counting days.But then the baby has other plans and the month of January will be the longest one in memory.The additional weight, the uncomfortable sitting and sleeping  positions. Dear lord, and to think that the older generations went through this for an average of 8 times is AWESOME.I just hope that I was able to nourish the baby well and he is healthy.Here I am, mentally settled into thinking that I am the mom of TWO boys.Cheers to the new year.

Already the discomfort of older months has vanished from memory and only the present occupies.The magical forgetfulness of pregnancy has acted again.Kudos to nature and God.

..and there is still a smirk on my face, when I visit the doctor.But ask my little boy if he wants a baby sister or brother and he is saying without batting an eye, that he wants a baby brother.

Something is stuck in my throat and refuses to go down.Help me.
