Being pregnant is the most beautiful feeling a woman can ever have. But our nature doesn’t bestow on everyone in this case, sad! This is an interesting story of Kashmera Shah and her husband Krushna who had to wait for too long to become parents. Their love story began with a one-night stand and eventually, they ended up being tied in the holy nuptial knot.
After more than 10 years being in a relationship, in 2017 the couple finally became parents. They welcomed twin baby boys through surrogacy. Kashmera became so emotional that she shared somethings about her babies and motherhood that are interesting to know. In an exclusive interview that she gave to the Times of India, Kashmera said,
“Being a mother is a completely different feeling and my life has changed completely. We have named our kids Ryan and Krishank.”
Talking about her failed pregnancy attempts she said,
“I took a sabbatical from work to have babies. I had been trying to conceive for good three years but it didn’t work out. It was tough as they weren’t conceived naturally. I had lost my health. My body went for a toss during the IVF process. I had 14 failed attempts at having kids. The IVF injections are no less than actually being a mother in her pregnancy stage. One has mood swings, puts on weight, gets annoyed just like a would-be mother. It becomes so difficult to lose weight because then it’s not natural. I became a waist size 32 from size 24. But I did not give up, neither on motherhood nor on my health.”
Talking about surrogacy, Kashmera revealed,
“I received flak from people who were already blessed with kids. There were mean comments against me. People blamed me for not intentionally wanting to have kids because they thought I was more focused on my figure. But that’s not right. Everything in my life happened late, right from finding the right life partner to then convincing into having babies to turning a mother, everything was late. Women’s biological system needs help as they age and it becomes difficult for them to then conceive naturally so that’s when surrogacy plays an important role. But at the end, Having my babies was the best thing of my life.”
Lastly, Kashmera thanked the surrogate and said,
“They don’t tell us who the surrogate was but I genuinely want to thank her for the pain that she took for me. I really appreciate that. She gave me something I will cherish for the rest of my life. I want her to know that all my good wishes are with her. Thank you so much.”
In another interview with the Times of India earlier, Kashmera had revealed that she and Krushna are planning to adopt a baby girl. A girl is definitely on our list and now that we don’t have a girl we may adopt soon.
