As'salamu alaykum ;)

For those of you who have been kind enough to read my pointless blog, I thank you.

We are expecting our first munchkin, and while I am in my mid thirties and have had the benefit of watching my siblings raise their children; I don't REALLY know what to expect. Here I am, with my unborn son squirming around in my belly, loving him endlessly and wishing my due date would get here. I have this intimate relationship with him already, but once again, I have no idea what comes next.

I will love him more than life.

My love for my husband will continue to increase exponentially.

I am willing to LIVE for my son, not just give my life.

I will love rocking him to sleep.

I will be nervous about so many people holding him.

I will be anxious to inspect him from head to toe at birth.

I think his hair will be as fine as kitten fur.

I will experience true exhaustion like never before.

I will feel guilty and cry my eyes out when I return to work full-time.

I will forever cherish this gift that Allah swt has bestowed upon us.

That's about all I know right now. I hope I am right. Inshallah I hope it's better than what I think I know. Alhamdulillah for everything.

Wow that was moving!

May Allah make the birth easy for you and bring you all the joys of motherhood.

May Allah grant me a child soon too.

Assalamu-alaykam sis,

Alhamdulillah, the hopes and dreams of an expectant mum! It will be everything you imagine it to be and a hundred other things you never imagined. Oh the bliss of being called mama for the first time, the relief of holding a healthy baby in your arms at last,
the joy of being able to see your feet again! Allah bless you with an easy safe birth inshallah.

Inshallah Big Sis,
Allah bless you with hordes of little ones, lots and lots and lots of them. You can bring them around to play with mine of course.

As-Salamu Alaykum

I think blogging is good for the soul. You can post the happy, the sad,the good and the bad without actually knowing who you are talking to. I have read your blog to my enjoyment. Would you mind if I added you to my blog roll? And my sister your words, thoughts, and feelings are never pointless. I sometimes felt my blogging was pointless. Insha Allah not for long.
