8 down, 32 to go...

By that I mean weeks, yo.

I stopped fasting last week. It was becoming too much for me. I am having 'morning sickness' at night and the morning - the only times I can eat when I fast. So I decided to stop fasting and eat throughout the day. I feel so much better.

Now the last couple of days my hunger has become insatiable in the afternoon!! I am trying not to pig out because I don't want to get too fat. I went to order a pizza for tonight and while I waited I walked over to BK to order something off their Dollar Menu. I ate a sandwich while I waited for pizza.. which I'll be eating w/ my husband and son at Iftar in like an hour. I ate it like 20 minutes ago and I am still hungry!!


Tomorrow is my first ob-gyn appointment. I am going clear across town to an all-women's clinic. I'll get my first ultrasound insha allah. Kind of nervous, kind of excited.

I need more faith because since I found out I am pregnant I have been scared more than anything else. Will the baby be healthy? Will I carry to term?

I always seem to carry out all these "doom scenarios" (as my husband calls them) in my head, expecting the worse. Insha Allah kheir. I need to pray more and make more du'a.


I'm not as moody and emotional as I was last week. Surprise, surprise - Husband and I have been getting along very well lately! I got my milkshake, plus he has become more talkative with me (I talk too much... I feel wierd with quiet people).

Dictator Princess - I remember you told me you speak Dutch. Since you know the language... I am sure that must give you an insight on Dutch culture. I think I could benefit a lot if you'd post about it someday... because sometimes I think my husband is the wierdest person in the world.

Salam alaikoum
Mabrouk on baby!
My Dutch subhan Allah is limited...I don't even know if I could post on it...I am married to a French fry and have lived in France for years, and people still flame the heck out of me for talking about French people. What could I say about Dutch?
Hmm. They're pragmatic. The milkshake thing perfect example. I could go on. Maybe email?

subhan Allah met another Dutch person in my daily life this week, so I might have more input after all :)
