6 Weeks Pregnant~ Baby #2

Yesterday marked my 6th week of pregnancy. Alhamdulilah. 

Yesterday I did feel funny, it felt has if I had a piece of lead in my stomach, very sluggish and just didn't feel like myself. Other than that, I pretty much feel the same, though I do feel a bit more worn out. 

Also in the evenings my stomach makes terrible noises, I believe it is indigestion. I noticed it happens only after I eat after 6 in the evening. Perhaps my husband will have to eat by himself in the evenings for a while. 

My first doctors appointment is February 19th. They are going to do an ultrasound and see if I have what you call an incompetent cervix. Where they will have to stitch it up so I will not go into premature labor again. 

Here is a little peek of my 6 weeks tummy. :)

Ahmad's 13 Month Update

Yes, I know I am a few days late for this, but I have had so many exciting things happening, I had just forgotten to write a blog post on Ahmad 13 month update.

Ahmad is walking very well now. Hardly ever falls or trips. He is for sure trying to talk, sometimes I think I kind of get what he is trying to say, but other times it is a just a jumble of sounds. He very clearly says "Done" and a few other words, that I am not sure are of coincidence or, if he actually knows what he is saying. 

He now loves looking at books. Sometimes I will find him just sitting in the living room floor flipping through his baby books. Absolutely heart warming. 

These past few days he has been very clingy. Wanting me to hold him the majority of the time, must be a phase he going through. 

It seems he pretty much understands what I say to him. So I think it is a good time to start teaching him the proper way to act.

Oh, and the few times he has went on the potty, I let him close the bathroom door. Maybe it makes him feel big, but he just loves to do it. 

He is quite the helper as well. Whenever I do laundry, I will give him some wet clothes to put in the dryer. Or when I am sweeping he holds the dust pan until I need it. He is also starting to learn to put his toys away. Ahhh, why did my baby have to grow so fast?

I am not 100% sure, but I think he maybe lactose intolerant. Since I have had him on cows milk, his bowels have been very loose and 5-6 times a day. I will have to ask his Pediatrician about this on his next DRs appointment.

Ahmad is also becoming choosy with his foods. He just doesn't eat everything now. He doesn't care for broccoli, eggs, and the laughing cow cheese. I have noticed that he loves the more "carb" things, such as bread, bread, and more bread. LOL

Anyhoo, I think that is about it, if I remember anything else, I will add to this post. :)

Salam aliakum everyone, well, I have an announcement for all of you! We will be adding a new addition to the family. Insha'allah my due date is October 5th, 2013. 

I am about 5 weeks and 5 days along, alhamdulilah.

I was pretty sure I was pregnant these past few weeks, but my HCG levels weren't high enough for them to detected in a test. Finally, last night I got a positive, ALHAMDULILAH!

So Ahmad is going to be a big brother soon, insha'allah!

Ahmad's Second Birthday!

Our Anniversary!
