Pathetic attempts at blogging

Looks like my poor little blog is getting more neglected as each week passes. I don't know what it is, but I've never been able to get into blogging like I wanted to.

I've been notified by CNCZ that I need a new blog post because the last one makes her bawl. Well, this is for you my fellow married to a crazy algerian sister :)

Deciding whether or not to share this with the world has been difficult. I wasn't sure if it was too soon, but here goes nothing....I'm pregnant!!!! Yup, I'm gonna have another stinky little half american, half algerian baby. I hesitated to share this with you all because in these 5 months I've already been pregnant, misscarried and pregnant again. I'm so afraid that I will somehow mess things up by sharing so please send a big mashaAllah and lots of prayers our way.

My hormone levels seem to be extremely high. I am sick to my stomach and throwing up all hours of the night and day. I'm exhausted, and I've lost about 6lbs. I normally would be super excited about the weight loss, but I'm just so hungry. Too bad for me because I can't seem to keep anything down.

We obviously haven't told Abdurrahman that we're going to have a baby, but he knows somehow. Any time I complain about being sick, he tells me it's that baby in my stomach that is making me sick. He says he's a genius and his brain told him about the baby. MashaAllah I guess he is.

I think he's going to be a great big brother. He's waited so long for this, and I'm super excited for him.....and for us. It's another step towards normalcy and towards putting this awful nightmare behind us.

OH....I haven't shared this news with my entire family or friends so if anyone I know in real life reads this please do not mention this to anyone yet.

Mabrook sister I'm so happy for you!!! May Allah SWT bless your pregnancy and birth, and may Allah bless you with a healthy baby to love and cuddle, and grow up to be a pious Muslim, Ameen!!
SubhanAllah sis about Abdu- he really is a genius!!
And Masha'Allah I'm so sorry to hear about your miscarriage sister, but SubhanAllah I'm sure you've heard the hadith, your baby will will pull you up to Jannah by his umbilical cord!! "The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah upon him, said, "By the One in Whose hands is my soul, the miscarried fetus will drag his mother to paradise by his [umbilical] cord if she was patient [with the miscarriage], hoping to be rewarded." [Ahmad]"
SubhanAllah that gives me chills sister!!
And may Allah SWT protect you, your family, and your baby from the evil eye, Ameen!!
Congratulations!!! Insha'Allah I hope you feel better, too!

I understand what you mean about having a miscarriage and then getting pregnant again. The same thing happened to me. You start to realized how fragile this life growing inside you is. Im 14 weeks and nervous everyday.
