Where have I been?

Hello Lovelies!

Long time no talk, eh! I hate that I completely dropped off the earth these past few months. I literally don't even remember the last time I took a selfie or put makeup on. So for those of you who don't know mainly because I literally have not announced it, I am pregnant. I found out I was pregnant after I got back from Lebanon and it has been a whirlwind of emotions because it was not planned but Subhanallah this is God's plan and Alhamdilah no matter what! 
Anyway I have been incredibly ill since I found out I was pregnant. The symptoms hit me hard and I am 16 weeks (4 months) along and still suffering from extreme nausea and vomitting. It has been very hard for me to leave my house or do anything. I can't work or eat or do much really. Any smell triggers vomitting so I haven't been able to live at my apartment with my husband because of the smells of the building and other apartments. I've basically been living at my parents house for the past few months. The fact that smells bother me also means I can't stand the scent of most makeup so I haven't put any on in ages. Honestly things like makeup and clothes seem so unimportant when you don't have your health. Either way it has been really difficult so far and I hate to sound so negative but this really is the hardest thing I have ever had to go through.
I want to continue to do pregnancy type updates until I can get back on my feet and hopefully get over this sickness. I miss you guys and miss reading your posts but honestly most days I don't even have the energy to turn my laptop on and read. 
Anyway just wanted to say hi and that I'm still alive! Thanks to those who have asked about me and wish me luck!

  6. aww! Maa shaa Allah Congratulations! I know what you mean about not feeling up to doing anything. Morning sickness is the most common pregnancy symptom but I asure you it will pass. I am 7 months pregnant! I can totally relate not doing much and losing motivation. The first few months I felt as you feel now. I had not blogged in a month and a half but my mood swings faded and so did my morning sickness. Now I am blogging a lot more now. I know every one is different, but relief will come soon. Take care of your self and baby! (hugs) :)

  9. Congrats on the pregnancy. Feeling sick is the worst, saltine crackers always helped me. I get the smells I couldn't smell Chinese food without getting ill even 5 years after. It finally did go away. Hopefully you can get some rest and relief from the nausea. Prayers and hugs to you.
