Actress Shveta Salve has of late come out as a person breaking stereotypes. The actress stunned everyone when she did a photoshoot of her pregnancy.

After the amazing photos, the actress has again done something which proves that her pregnant phase will be talked about for quite some time now. Shveta has penned down a heart touching letter for her unborn baby.

The letter is a true image of what pregnant mothers go through. In the letter, Shveta highlighted how she relied on apps and books to understand what her body was going through.

“The pros were endless and hardly any cons. For an insomniac I would sleep like a baby and what a feeling it was. My skin had a spectacular new shine no facial ever gave me, hair fall? What hair fall?? And the boobies!! Take it from someone who is not blessed in that department: ‘Winner Winner Chicken Dinner,” the letter read.

She then also wrote how she did what she wanted to do during her pregnancy as long as her body and doctors permitted it.

“Friends and family would tell me to slow down and calm down, I know they speak out of concern, but believe me the secret to this is just to listen to your body. If your body says hey I need to chill now, relax, and take a nap. If it’s up and about, go for a walk or swim or do some yoga, as your heart pleases, after all, you are just pregnant not physically challenged.”

Shveta also then explained how her clothes started becoming too small for her to fit in.

But in the end, Shveta wrote that all the pain would be worth it.


So dear baby,

Now it’s all on you. Your mamma is as ready as she can be!

I promise you this: no matter what, I’m going to be by your side just like always. I’ve been these last few months — with every breath I take and every morsel I eat. I will continue caring for you and putting all your needs before mine.

I can’t wait to hear your first cry, to feel your soft skin against mine, smell your beautiful babyness. Sorry, you heard me complain about silly stretch marks, saggy boobies and no sleep. I promise to wear my Tiger stripes with pride. It means I’ve nourished your body, and that’s what matter. I’ll stay up with you all night long (and make sure Daddy does as well!).
