For as long as I remember, I have always idolized physical fitness in terms of weight and body mass all my life. There was not a single day in my life before marriage when I did not gym to shred those extra calories I had while eating a pizza the night before, lets say 🙈💁🏼♀️
I am a foodie, so I have to keep count of all those extra inches I gain when I misbehave with my diet. 😂😂 When we both were expecting our baby, the one thing I was not willing to accept and embrace was the physical change I had to go through.
I wont say it was easy. My time was filled with a lot of depressing spells, sleepless nights, and lots of tears.
I would measure each inch I was putting on, I would count each stretch mark this pregnancy was causing me. I used to cry in front of my mother and weep in-front of my husband.
Even though I ate healthy, kept myself physically super active, walked daily, But then there are pregnancy cravings 💁🏼♀️ and you cant say no to those? 😂 hahaha. .
I remember that night when I was super low, told shayan that I don’t feel like looking at myself in the mirror. The physical change is making me look ugly. And he held my hand and said, “ I cannot promise to remove/reduce every single pain/change that you will go through. Whatever you are doing is phenomenal and exceptional. I cannot in any capacity compare any of my problems/pains with yours. But I promise to share as much as I can with you, even if it means putting on weight with you. And then shredding it together once we welcome our baby in this world”. 🥰
Since then, my dear husband has been by my side. He ate even when he thought he would explode. He ate even when he used to hate my weird pregnancy cravings. He ate even when he got insulted and humiliated by all our family members( including both side of our parents). He ate even when his jeans refused to fit on him and his shirt buttons started to fall down. He ate so that I could be relaxed and don’t feel conscious about my body.
Sometimes I could see the frustration in his eyes. He felt like giving up many times. I even told him that you don’t have to do this anymore. But he refused saying” you deserve more than this” ♥️🥰
