Eat Well to Manage Post Partum Blues - sharadi 

Sometimes it is a lot less stressful to manage on your own since you don’t have to worry about other factors such as your mom’s health when here, the excessive work load on her etc. For the first month postpartum you mainly need a lot of sleep and healthy non-spicy food. you could make a few daals and bland veggies a few days prior to your due date and stock them up. you could also buy/ make some ladoos and sweets with nuts that are handy so you can munch on them between meals. 

Get your husband to do the basic chores. Don’t stress out if things don’t get done the way you want them or if the house is messy. It’ ok. Your health takes priority over everything else.

Join prenatal classes to get tips on managing with your baby alone. you could also get nannies or doulas to help during childbirth and during the first few weeks .

Plus always remember it’s a temporary phase and you’ll go back to India soon

The Last Laugh

Seems like some folk don't find dying such a serious business after all....these are all actual epitaphs from real graves.

- Here lies the body of our Anna
Done to death by a banana
It wasn't the fruit that laid her low
But the skin of the thing that
made her go...

Dentist Brown is filling his last cavity.

a lump of clay
Lies stingy Jimmy Wyatt
Who died one morning
