Carrying Your Child

Thank you to the dearest Ms. Jumana Al Awadhi for tweeting an article she wrote about the benefits of carrying your child and the misconceptions behind it. I’m definitely going to force everyone who keeps bugging me to put my baby down to read it! I believe it’s only natural to keep your baby in your arm for as long as you can.
Please take your time to read the article

Dr. Ahmad We Love You

I would like to dedicate this post to the amazing Dr. Ahmad Al Shazly. He is the most amazing Dr anyone could dream of! He’s supportive and such a gentleman, always answering my calls even at odd times and takes all our questions and hesitations seriously no matter how minute they were. If you guys remember how I struggled with finding the best Dr, and I must say that after all the Drs I saw no one could come close to Dr Ahmad’s professionalism and compassion.
All new mommies out there I’m ordering you to go see him and you’ll know what I mean from the first visit !
Thank you a million times dear Dr. I don’t think I could’ve done this without you. God bless you.

The birth

Thursday September 8th 2011

I’m 5 days past my due date, so u guys imagine how huge and tired I was feeling. For the past 2 weeks King takes me walking on the sandy beach of Kuwait with hope that the baby would finally decide to honor us with her presence :p

12pm
Just left the Dr.’s office where he told me that the baby seems to be enjoying herself and won’t be coming out anytime soon. We agreed that we’ll meet again on Saturday and discuss options. I call up King telling him the news and my decision that I will forget about the baby and enjoy the weekend.

1pm
We book a movie at 8:45 while having lunch at Lorenzo.

3pm
I decide to take a nap to build up the energy to go out later that night.

5pm
I wake up from what turned out to be a deep sleep, chatted with King, got out of bed, on the way to my changing room, my water broke!
I’m gonna save you from the details that followed which involved lots of laughing from my behalf and King and the nanny telling me off for wasting time putting on make up :p

I think I should write a short story of my birth :p it was hilarious.

My sister Juju (baby’s godmother) cuts the umbilical cord and Princess Tara is born! 🙂

Of course the 21 hours of my labour weren’t so easy and I wouldn’t have done it without my family and Dr. Ahmad Al Shazly who was by my side all the time and reminded me to stay strong as well as ensuring the safest way of delivering the baby.

There are a lot of things I would like to add to this post but unfortunately the baby makes my free time very limited and there are other things I would like to post about. And I don’t want you guys to get bored with my blabber :p

Talk to you soon inshallah
