MY 200th POST & MY 20th WEEK


Hi All.......

This would be my 200th post and for those who havnt caught up with the news ,I'am 20 weeks pregnant. It's a BOY!!!......

Am loving this whole pregnancy thing.....Getting as much sleep/food as you want, getting all kind of attention from my dear hubby/parents, with the baby moving inside once in a couple of hours, feeling happy looking over and over at the ultrasound pictures, haaa all that is a real fun one shouldnt miss.

First of all, It was a planned one. I found out that I was pregnant on April 18th '09 with a home-pregnancy kit. This just happened two days before my 25th B'day ie: April 20th. I was just 6 weeks then. Not knowing this,Just a couple of weeks earlier I invited over few common friends(around 12) to my place for my B'day(it was on 19th evening). Me and my hubby were so excited about this pregnancy thing and planned to tell our parents on my B'day. The evening went well with all the ladies chit-chatting inside and men BBq'ing in the patio. I couldn't stop thinking over to tell my parents while i was with them. I didn't want them to know about this before our parents knew. Later had our dinner..The menu was: My BBQ chicken, Grilled CornCob, Haldirams snack pack, My Bagara rice, My Palakura pappu,My Kadhai Bhindi, Hubby's Awesome Chicken curry, Hubby's Mutton Curry, My Pappu Charu, Hubby's Raita, My Fruit Salad . A few hours later,around 12' O clock i cut a cake. They all left after half-an-hour and I was eagerly waiting for my parents call .We couldn't sleep till 2 in the morning.I thought maybe they would call and wish me in the morning. But they didn't. It was sooo frustrating.We both went to the temple and had dinner along another couple at PFchang. Again I was waiting for their call....i couldnt sleep....unable to withhold my emotions, i made a call at around 10.30PM . It was my brother this time. It was 11.00Am in India.

Bro:Hello!! Haa Akka tell me...How r u?? Happy B'day akka!!!
Me:Thank you!! Hey how stupid you guys dont even care to call me even though u remember it was my B'day...Wheres maa and daddy???Give them the phone.
Bro:Maa and daddy both are sleeping. I will ask them to give a call in the morning. Ok.
Me: What???Sleeping at this time of the day??? Comeon no prb if they are sleeping...Wake them up...
After few seconds.....
Bro: Maa said she will talk to you later...she's in deep sleep.And daddy too.
I didnt believe what he was saying...I felt sth was going on....i could hear my maa talking to dad.
Me: No problem...comeon dont try to fool me ...i know she is fine...i could hear her and dad over the phone..
Bro: Maa.....Akka on the line.
Maa: Haa Raju...How are u??Its 11.00 am here, Isn't it too late for u there....
Me:What maa..why is that nobody cared to wish me on my B'day??? not even dad..
Maa: Haa hello raju...Hello.....what did u say???Hello....i cant hear u nana....i will call you in the evening...ok.

I didn't find any disturbance over the line...she sounded soo gloomy to me...not much of an excitement in her tone that always accompanies her..still i was waiting for their blessings...

Me:(witha curious tone) Maa...I could hear u properly...Whats the matter....You all dont sound soo good...Is everything fine ..comeon tell me...
Maa: (Witha harsh tone)haa...what?? what r u talking about??nothing of that kind...everyones fine...haa sorry raa...happy b'day.

Her words made me think...whats going on???I couldnt say anything else except for hanging up without sharing the wonderful news with them..We both were quite worried thinking of what might have happened. Two days passed. There were no calls from both the sides. At last I called my mom thinking everythig might have been ok. But there was no to answer. I was even more worried. After two days my mom called me.

Me: Hello maa..where have u guys been???i tried to call you several times. Arn't you at home??
Maa: Haa raju...we wen to your grandpa's(mom's dad) village for 2 days. Everybody(my uncles/aunts) gathered there aftera very long time. just for a change.
Me: Why was that all of a sudden??? You've been there last month too right...
Maa: haa but this time everone was coming over...so thought this would be good. thats it. So hows everything?? how's R??
Me: He's fine...listening to our conversaation right now...He says he wants to talk to dad...Is dad there...
Maa:Haa..wait..
R:Hello mamayya..hows everthing going...
Dad:Hello R......(they cover everything from politics,current market trends, housing market to movies)At last he cracks the goodnews to my dad...Both of us talked to mom and dad for around 20-25 mins. They were happy about this...immediately R calls our in-laws to share the same news....They were even more excited about this...Finally I was totally relieved of this burden.

But exactly after 2 weeks i came to know that my Uncle's(moms elder bro) Younger daughter kiran had passed away on 19th. She was diagnosed in May '08 with some kind of cancer at the age of 22, just months after her marriage. Doctors wer'nt sure what it was. A small spreadable lump was developing on her back ,which got even worse after repeated operations.Even after several chemotheraphy sittings we couldnt get her back. I still couldnt imagine she left us all. Whenever I think of her I always get the feeling that she's living happily just as everyone of us are.
