Few updates on pregnancy including work, diet and oils.
As we take on this new journey. I can’t help but notice the countless times I have been asked if I am planning to work after having a baby while my husband was not asked the same question. But I do understand the perspective (history) of these questions so that’s why I am not riled up about it.
The answer is yes, I am planning to work even after having a baby. All women are different and we all came from different environment and upbringing hence the views are so different for each one of us.
My mom started working again within 3-6 months after having my brother and I. Her leaving us at daycare at early age clearly did not make us love her less. We all have a very strong bond. And I am grateful to her for making us independent and strong individuals. My mom had help in form of maid services in India when she had us. She still says it made things easier because she did not have to do everything except few things and cooking.
And here in US, these services are luxury. Stay at home mom’s literally have to do everything themselves which includes cooking, feeding, laundry, ironing, grocery shopping, cleaning toilets, rooms, everything your child make a mess of and so much more. That itself is a full time job around the clock.
