Ok... Another one from the Life's moments series...random and lovely moments sketched out of the life of happily married Arnav and Kushi I was asked by lusciouslucky to pen one on the pregnancy track... so here you go girl.. this is for you... Hope you all will like it... Happy reading...
Kushi sat down by the recliner as she looked around the room.. Surely she forgot something... Something very important... what did she forget?
Arnav saw his wife sitting on the recliner tried and worn out.
"What happened Kushi ? Are you alright?"
"Yeah I am alright... Just a little tired.. thats all" she told him putting her hand over her temple...
"You headache hasnt gone yet?"
"Yeah.. it seems to be getting worser..."
"wait let me call the doctor...or do you want me to take you to the hospital?"
"No No.. I will be alright... dont bother..I think... a little rest should be fine.."
"No you look tired Kushi... yesterday when I reached home at 7.30 you were sleeping in the recliner and you told you didnt even realise that you dozed off.. Something is surely wrong with you..."
"No arnav ji.. I am alright" Kushi protested as Arnav kept his hand on her forehead checking for her temperature...
"I will stay at home today Kushi"
"No.. You go to office.. I am ok..." she got up, taking his laptop bag in hand and dragging him out of their room towards the dining hall
"Take your breakfast and leave" she instructed him."I will be ok"
"Kushiji are you feeling alright?" Anjali asked her at the breakfast table
"Yes Di.. why do you ask?"
"you look tired"
"May be he is not letting her sleep in the night... She sleeps at odd hours to cover it up" Mami sniggered
The family laughed. Arnav rolled his eyes. They are married for almost two years now and these people still get a go at them.
"But you do look pale and tired Bitiya..." Nani added smiling
"look didnt I tell you .. everyone feels so.." Arnav told her
"Maybe you should rest bitya" Nani told her kindly
"May be I should stay at home and make sure she rests..." Arnav informed
"If you stay at home.. then how will she rest?" Mami teased again making others laugh.
"oh god you could be worser than a school kid throwing tantrums to bunk school... No go to office... " she sighed as she finally succeeded in packing him off to office
Kushi reached the kitchen when she noticed a Miffed Payal muttering to herself
"what happened Jiji?"
"Nothing Kushi.. I am just little bit tired and irritated..."
"why you are feeling tired too is it? Payal looked at her sister "oh yeah.. you look pale Kushi.. are you alright? you still have your headache? shall I make ginger tea for you?"
"No..I am ok Jiji.. tell me about you.."
"I didnt sleep well yesterday night kushi.. piya was up all night.. a little cranky and on top of it I got my periods today.. I am just getting irritated"
"Periods! oh god yes"
"Thats what I forgot..." Kushi exclaimed going out of the kitchen not answering a confused Payal
"Why didnt I get it? I think I was due sometime back...and what is with getting all tired nowadays?" she thought to herself. Yes she did feel very tired off late.. to the point of dozing off without even realising... and this feeling that she was forgotting something very important kept nagging her as she climbed up the stairs to the room. Then the thought struck her when she was about to enter her room..
"Maybe I am pregnant" She exclaimed "Jiji was tired too when she announced her pregnancy.. and Di also had headaches... bad ones when she announced hers... Oh my god.. should I call Arnavji now? Or should I wait? How will I tell him? should I take the pregnancy test and then tell him? or should I wait for him to come?"
Her mind was reeling in top speed with all those questions. She then checked how long she had been overdue...
"48 days... May be I should get a kit and test... No.. I will wait till he returned home... " she decided. " But How will I tell him this?" then a plan stuck her mind and she was happy with her plan in place and waited for her laad governer to return home.
Arnav had been thinking about his wife's state at office. He had called up home sometime at around 11.30 and was informed that his darling wife was sleeping. She had been acting weird off late... She dozed off at odd hours...Her appetite had increased. Not that she had been eating less anyways...
She always had a huge appetite that never went with her slim waist... but these two three days she had been eating more.. but surprisingly she couldnt finish the Jelebis that he got her yesterday evening.. it was the first time ever she said that to Jelebis.. she only took two...But she told that she was full already.. May be she was... But she did look very tired and pale too...
It was not as if he was demanding too much off her at night... When she had managed it wonderfully when he used to be so demanding when they were newly married then she should had got used to it by now... but why was she feeling tired all of a sudden? and then it stuck him...why she was feling all fatigued all of a sudden...
Kushi waited for him as she knew he would be climbing the stairs by now. She heard his car entering the gate. And he should be here anytime now..
"Calm down Kushi... Patience.. you can do it..." she convinced herself and took her seat by the bed.
Arnav opened the bedroom door causiouly so as to not wake her up but saw her already up and sitting by the bed with a magazine.
"erm.. Kushi.. You wanted to tell me something?"
"Arnav Ji... I havent still.. I thought... I will keep the kit in the shelf and you will find it and then you will guess... but you guessed it with the fact that erm.." Kushi told looking at her feet blushing to roots.
"You mean you got one already.. But didnt take the tests... Why?" He asked her confused.
"I didnt want you to miss the moment... if I .. I am pregnant.. I thought we will do it together..."
"Kushi.." He whispered and then took her in a long hug which told many unsaid things "I feel so blessed Kushi..." he told her atlast
"Arnavji.. What do you want the result to be?" she bit her lip
He released her from his hug and then looked down into her eyes which was very apprehensive.
"If it is positive... I will be the most happiest person on earth.. May be you might have to put up with my over protectiveness.. but you know what you signed up for... " He grinned at her and she smiled back
"What if it is negative...may be we are jumping into conclusions too soon.. "
"Then, I would still remain the happiest person on earth... we can try little more to get you pregnant" he smirked as she smacked him on his chest..
"Shall we check now?" he asked her.
"No we have to wait till the morning... it was written in the kit that the results are accurate when we do it early in the morning"
"ok then... I shall postpone the appointment to tomorrow then"
Arnav stood in the room the next morning as he held the kit in his his right hand and on the other was holding Kushi by her waist.
"Are we ready?" he asked her
she nodded merely and swallowed. She could see his hand on her waist had gone chill and his hand holding the kit shivering a little.
"Anything is fine" she murmered as she hooked one of her hands on the neckline of his TShirt and with her other hand dropped two droplets into the hole as written in the instructions.
He saw her as she closed her eyes tight and murmering DM. He saw the first line coming up...and tightened the grip on her waist a little, pulling her closer as he felt her shivering with anticipation and then he saw as the second line turned red... a defining moment in their lives .. the moment when he realised that they both were on their family way.. they were venturing into parenthood... He stood there releasing his breath which he didnt realise he had been holding and looked down at her. She peeked open one of her eye, looked into the kit and then slowly looked up into his eyes.
"Its positive" she whispered
They remained that way for a few minutes, reveling the moment, silently, in eachother's embrace- no words were needed then to explain their state of mind. After a few minutes kushi broke the silence.
"Arnavji... My heart is beating faster than ever before... is your heart beating faster too?"
The family was gathered in the Dining table for breakfast. Anjali was struggling with her little Avni, who sitting on her high chair, was throwing tantrums to eat her breakfast whereas 9 month old rebellious Piya were throwing all her cut fruits as she sat on another high chair. Akaash was trying to make her stop the act and Payal was trying to make her drink her milk atleast.
"I dont know how our Akaash or Payal would get such a rebellious kid... both are so calm and look at their Piya" Nani commented as the family kept ducking from being hit and smuged with fruits.
"Of all the things you could say.. you settled for high chair" Kushi shook her head
"ArHi Style" he winked at her...
