Kishwer Merchantt is 40 and defying all the ‘biological clock’ ticking warnings, she is all set to welcome her first child in the month of August 2021. Kishwer and her husband, Suyyash Rai were often questioned by their fans, friends and family about planning a baby, however, as they say, things happen, when they are bound to happen. Pregnancy came naturally to the couple in the times when they were least expecting it. Kishwer was already two months pregnant when the couple had gotten to know about the good news of their lives.
Kishwer is documenting every big and small moment of her pregnancy and has been sharing it on her social media handle. From her mood swings to cravings to visiting her doctor, Kishwer has made everyone a part of her pregnancy journey. When Kishwer was in her fifth month, she had visited her gynaecologist for a routine checkup. Taking to her IG stories on April 17, 2021, Kishwer had shared a picture from her ultrasound test, flaunting her five-month baby bump. The actress had kept her look casual and could be seen wearing double masks, keeping the COVID-19 situation in mind. For every expecting parent, ultrasound sessions are one of the most exciting phases as they get to see and hear their baby and we are sure Kishwer too was thrilled.
Kishwer has been sharing her pregnancy experience and this time she has shared the weird thing that happened with her. Taking to her IG handle, Kishwer shared a Boomerang of her hand, focusing on how her fingers were swollen enough that she had to cut the rings out of them. Sharing the Boomerang, she wrote, “Some weird things that happen during pregnancy.. hands and feet swell up, rings got stuck, had to get them cut” atop it. Here is the screenshot of the same:
It was on March 2, 2021, when Kishwer and Suyyash had taken to their respective Instagram handles and had made their pregnancy announcement. In the picture, we could see Suyyash Rai on his knees by the beachside and holding his wife, Kishwer Merchantt's hand, and on the sand, it was written 'August 2021'. Kishwer had captioned the picture as "You can now stop asking "when are you guys gonna have a baby." Coming Soon #august2021 #sukishkababy". On the other hand, Suyyash had written, "Mai tere bacche ka baap banne wala hun. Coming this August."
Kishwer has been talking about her pregnancy experience and fears on her IG handle. Taking to her IG handle on April 2, 2021, Kishwer had shared a video, narrating her pregnancy experience so far. She had talked about everything she has faced or is facing during her pregnancy and every expecting mother can relate to it. From talking about developing thyroid to haemorrhoids, mood swings to itchy and painful breasts, people telling her what to eat to people asking her not to workout or dance, Kishwer had bared her heart out. While she had shared her first pregnancy experience and the problems that had accompanied it, she had also shared that once you are in this phase, you are ready to embrace it all no matter what.
Kishwer had talked about getting pregnant naturally at the age of 40, in an interview with the Hindustan Times. She had shared, "Being a mother at 40 is cool and age is just a number. It was destined to happen this year, I guess. I asked all sorts of questions to the doctor but she's asked me not to worry. I have cousins who have delivered at 40 and 42, so I don’t see age as a problem and things are changing as many people don't have kids at 20 or 24 but a bit later. Moreover, due to our lifestyle, workout, healthy eating, it will be fine, and delivering at 40 is fine.”
If you are an expecting lady or know someone, do you relate to Kishwer’s ordeal?
