Thank you everyone for your kind words and duas :):) They're really appreciated and I can't thank you all enough for taking some time to wish us well alhamdulillah.
One thing I've been thinking a lot about lately is fasting during pregnancy. Ramadhan is around the corner and I can hardly imagine it without fasting! It shocks me that I went so long without it before considering how big a part of my life it is now.
Personally, I do not think I will fast - this is my first pregnancy and everything is new. I can't help but feel that fasting when it is not obligatory on me is creating too much of a risk. I'm especially worried because I will be entering the 3rd trimester in the beginning of Ramadhan and considering that that is when the biggest growth occurs for my child, I just don't think it's a good idea. I applaud women who are able to do it, I don't know if there's much more that I wish I could do than fast.
Fasting while breastfeeding seems easier for me to adjust to, considering I won't be working this time next year and can work around it like expressing, etc.
What are your experiences in Ramadhan while pregnant/breastfeeding?
