5 Months...

The big question… Whether or not?

Well here I’m talking about whether or not you should resume work after your maternity break. I’m of the view that once my baby comes into the world and I spend some quality time with my sweetheart, I would definitely want to join back work.

My immediate family thinks otherwise and keeps suggesting me to take at least a year’s off after I step into mother zone. My hubby on the other hand has left it on my hands and says he would support whatever decision I take. I seriously feel this support is more important for me than anyone else’s. Especially when it is about our baby.

Right now I am of the view that I would resume my work when my Chutka is around 3 months old. Frankly all this depends on how things progress and on the situation then. I don’t feel that I would neglect Chutka by going back to work.

I don’t know whether I would be doing the right thing or no, but this is what is right for me. It is a case of “to each his own” here. So decide in advance and don’t stress… be a happy mom. Here is to all the mommies who decide to go back to work.

Mumz the Way to be...

It is so fascinating to know that you have another life taking shape inside you. You start feeling special and want to do all you can to ensure the baby is safe, secure, healthy and happy. Chutka's acrobatics can be felt and s/he becomes more active when I plan to sleep around 11-12 in the night...
Chutz I guess knows how badly mom wants to sleep and wants to assure I feel him/her just before going to bed. :-)
I'm enjoying my pregnancy and for me (Mashallah) its so far so good. I love each and every moment and want to be as happy as I can for me... Fizz and specially for Chutka...
Off late I have been getting this feeling "Will I be able to become the world's best and coolest mum ever?" I just wish... I dont want my baby to feel "I wish my mum was like ---'s mum..."
I want to do all that is possible for my Chutka to say "My mum's the best mum in this whole wide world..."
Guess I would need to wait... :-) but it is for sure worth it...
