No pains No gains

Searing pain in the lower back moving to the center of the belly, Heavy belly so much so its difficult to walk, Steep ramp making you wonder why ramps are built, Heavy traffic of one cycle making you think why this cyclist has to come in your way...

All these happened when I was in labor one year ago. Labor pains started just about early that morning.... And when I stepped inside the hospital, the next thing I knew was the labor board and then the next timing I knew was mid day when my baby boy arrives in a small bundle....

All that fight in the labor room and all the smiles of the victorious doctors made me smile slightly. The aftermath was tough to cope with and when all was wrong with me, the doctors said, " yes this is what is expected!!! Sleep well..We'll come after three hours to check on you." So saying, I was left alone to SLEEP when after all the struggle, physical and mental, I just couldn't close my eye lids. It was a total blank.. and then all hazy...and then alternating between tears and relief.

On this day, one year later, I cannot help recalling the whole scene plus the feeling that I cannot sometimes cope with the tantrums of the kids and my own self, people around me say the same thing : Yes, this is what is expected!!! Take it easy and take lots of rest and take care of your health.

After a brief time of losing my cool this morning, obviously with my children, I sit back and think that every pain has its joys...... So its good to go through life thinking about or dreaming about the joys that may unfold!!!!
