6th month of pregnancy has begun

Dear Baby no. 2. I hope you feel the joy I feel ever since I came to know you are in me. It’s only that circumstances around me do not make me go easy on myself at times. So if you ever feel negative vibes, it’s me who needs a wake up call. Please don’t ever think I don’t love you. I do. A lot.


Pregnancy now is something I’ve got used to. But stepping on weighing scales still scares me. I don’t want to put on 25 kgs by delivery time like I did during my first pregnancy. Currently I’m satisfied with my weight gain. Baby’s begun kicking alright. Sometimes I think it’s trying to do the ballet. Other times it’s ‘balle balle’.


Sangi will be home by next weekend. It’s a definite goodbye from her to Infy BPO. And then it’s all studies once more in good old St. Agnes College. I wonder how she’s going to face having restrictions placed on her again. The nuns there always seem to have more rules than any other place I know or hear about.


Vivek will be home too around the same time for a few days. My guess is that he’s lost a lot more hair. And weigh the same. And he and mom would have another session of ‘Why don’t you get married’ and ‘Why don’t you get off my back’.


Seeing mom and dad together in the kitchen every morning is a little odd for me. For one thing I never woke up early. Second I can’t remember them being together in the kitchen unless it was a crisis situation like a party at home.


At work, coming to office feels more like punishment. For all the crap I’ve seen and faced with a few colleagues. Thanks to Anitha and Deepthi once more, I’m on my feet again. We’ve been together fairly often. Either for lunch or treats. And level headed ladies that they are, I’m learning to keep my thoughts and sanity intact. God bless them both.


Went out for lunch with Deepthi and Suman to Gold Finch – Sanadige to try their Thali offer. Food was really good. A good stuffing and I’m glad that there aren’t any wild animals around. Else we 3 would have made wonderful meals for them.


Suman joined the department on Monday. She’ll be handling the new office activities from Monday. Although a fresher, she seems to pick up fairly well. Came to know today that her favorite color is Purple. Kind of odd to me since I just finished reading the book ‘The Color Purple’. And I’ve never come across folks who like that color.


Jeethy will be back from her leave due to chicken pox. Was a little worried when she said she wanted to join back yesterday even though she still had a few scabs falling off her tummy. Thankfully boss man intervened and asked her to join back on Monday. By then I hope she’s in good shape and health again.


Braggs’ birthday was on the 12th. Wanted to call him and wish but I was just too tied up with work. So had to resort to wishing over gtalk.


Got to speak to AK over gtalk after a very long time. I think he’s in B’lore now. Or should be pretty soon. Love to hear him talk about his son.


BV is facing better days. Pretty soon he’ll be facing Training days for 3 whole months. My best wishes to him to survive on his ownsome lonesome for the entire period.


Have been on the myfamily site reading and not posting much. Have lots happening but just no urge or intention to write. Maybe something’s wrong with me. Maybe not. Oh well! Until the next blog post.
