With winters in full bloom in most parts of the country, cold, cough and flu are common among kids. Blame it to the changing weather or to a child’s low immunity, it’s quite normal to find your child sneezing suddenly. Whatever may be the reason for the illness, tending to an unwell kid is the toughest job for a mother. Blocked nose, congestion and bouts of cough that keep them awake during nights can be very taxing for kid and mom. However, you would be surprised to know that the usually hated winters are actually the best time to work on immunity as this is the season when the nature is ready to nurture us. The digestive system is strong in this season and loads of immunity boosting foods come during this period.

Yes, I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes very early during my pregnancy. Those who know me would know how much I dread the disorder. I lost my dad to diabetes 10 years ago. He was only 50. So, I had my reasons to freak out when I first got to know about my high sugar levels. And I did freak out and how! From “how did I get it?” to “how would I mange it” to “will my baby also be diabetic?,” my mind was full of questions (and misconceptions too) that I wanted someone to clear. Soon, I was on the mission to manage my sugars and my pregnancy. And I did it, thanks to my gynaecologist and my diabetologist. Here are a few things I did about gestational diabetes and sailed happy and healthy through the nine months…
Pampering my tired feet is my idea of ultimate relaxation. I make sure to get my dose of bliss every month with my favourite pedicurist. This Karwachauth, when I couldn’t manage a trip to my parlour, I ended up at Nailspa Experience Spa & Salon’s newest outlet. Though a little skeptical in the beginning, I was mighty pleased at the end of the experience.
