<Second Trimester 2015 Baby No.2>
.
🤰🏽I decided to put these disclaimers because every time I put a pregnancy related photo/video I get a “congratulations” 😂. This was one of the best parts of my second pregnancy, I was in London for a 2015 family reunion to see @imanblogs and her baby (that’s the last time our family was together). I travelled on my own 5 months Preggo with my 18 month old. Yes I am crazy but I would do anything for my family! I felt amazing except for the occasional back pain and falling sick with the famous Noro Virus. Apart from physical ailments I have always had a pretty smooth second trimester. Join @this_ruh & I tonight on #DoulaDiaries on my profile Live on Instagram at 9 PM EST/6 PM PST as we talk about #secondtrimester & everything that comes with it. We are taking questions so do leave them 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼 What was your favorite part of your second trimester? What was your least favorite pregnancy symptom during that time?

So over the last week I made a decision that involved my daughter & her school which I will share with you on Friday. The result of that was needing a special gift for her teacher which we planned to give right before school closes Mid December for the holidays. #ad We picked up a Vanilla MasterCard Gift Card Pack which includes 3 GiftCards (super budget friendly), themed for the holidays which was perfect for the teacher & her assistants.
.
🎁 Even though I don’t celebrate the holidays (we do love all the beautiful lights though!), there is always a teacher/mentor/colleague/friend who probably does! So if you have a special someone who celebrates and you would like to gift them something go check out these @vanillagiftcards at the Walmart Holiday Kiosk. There are several to pick from and it gives them the freedom to buy what they actually NEED with these! Can you tell I love GiftCards? They are the best!.
.
💝 Also for every Card Purchase you make you have a chance to win 1 of over 100 prizes! The Grand prize is a $10K shopping spree at Macy’s (YUP!). The Grand prize drawing is on 12/24/18. Isn’t that a WIN WIN?!.

@the.little.chapters

Lately I feel like my toddler has me on the side lines. He wants to do everything himself and when I ask him for a cuddle he turns and says "erm, no". I'm proud he at least thinks about it and makes decisions I guess. But seriously my baby is growing up and already doesn't need me as much as he did last week. I know I'm worrying for no reason and in time he will need me again. There is always next week! . . . . . #growinguptoofast #mamasboy #toddleradventures #slowdownyoucrazychild #mumofboys #fatherandson #our everyday moments #littlesnippetsofus #ourdailystory #motherhoodunplugged #thefunnythingskidsdo #autumndays #thelittlechapters #throughmamaseyes #mondaymood

At last, we completed the @craft.set.go 's theme on bubble art. OMG, we had so much fun in spite of all the mess 😁. Hafsa loved to blow the bubbles while the little one enjoyed bursting those🙈 and all these happened in our living room😝
.
.
This idea was inspired by @apieceofrainbow through Pinterest. It took two weeks to finish our masterpiece. Initially, started with bubble fun, then tried out in paper and finally to a cardstock. Let it dry completely and cut in shapes. Leaf cutouts are made by Hafsa without much help from me. Finally assembled everything on a cardstock with a double sided tape to give a 3d look. Hope you people find it that way too😁🙈

I started this blog in November 2016. I really had no idea what I was doing. All I really wanted to do was bring beneficial information to mama’s, help them feel like they were not alone & showcase products I loved. I fell pregnant with my third shortly after I started & I had to slow down most of 2017 & 2018. How did 2 years fly by though? I can remember writing my first blog post like it was yesterday. It was on my first @fawndesign bag & it was the top result on google for almost 18 months #alhamdullilah. I bought their bag & reviewed it. It’s not the best structured post in the blogging world but it was special to me. Now less than 2 years later, @FawnDesign approached me to collaborate with them. I can’t tell you how amazing it felt to see one of my dreams/goals with this blog come true & that’s INCLUSIVENESS as a Muslim & A Hijabi 💕🙏🏼♥️!.
.
👩🏽‍💻 I have learnt so much from this experience, from the technical side of blogging, to how much work it actually takes to run a blog (it really is a full time job & a lot of times with no income until you grow). So people wonder why do you do it if you are not earning a full time income? Why not get a job even if its from home. I have tried that, and honestly, nothing beats this. Nothing beats the pure fulfillment I get from helping 1 person with a blog post I wrote. Nothing beats getting a message from someone saying they were so glad they were not the only one feeling that way. I am still finding my way through all of this and figuring it out while I manage life with my 3 kids, but I hope you will continue to follow me along the way.
.
. I am excited for you guys to see more on this collaboration soon, but for now, this picture is all you will get hehe 😆 I hope you have an amazing Friday, and starting next week, I will run some amazing giveaways to celebrate with you all. But first can you help me get to 7K? I started my blog on 7 Nov and how amazing would it be to get to 7K while we celebrate?.
.
.Have a beautiful weekend guys ♥️

<Pregnant> Nope I am not pregnant 🤪 but I do remember the moment I found out I was pregnant. Looking down at that pregnancy test in shock. Those pregnancy symptoms. The excitement. The Fear. Everything. I remember my first pregnancy like it was yesterday. It’s funny I am typing about this because I went into labor at this EXACT moment 5 years ago!
.
🤰🏽Reflecting on how it went, Alhamdullilah I had a pretty smooth pregnancy over all but but there are a lot of things I wish I knew. Whether it was what to take when I had severe nausea, or how cramping was so normal, or even how I needed to research a good doctor & not just go to any doctor (I eventually found a good provider 7 months into pregnancy after a bad experience). There was so much I wish I did now that I have the knowledge as a Doula. I have alot of What IF’s with my pregnancies & births and this is why today, I want to support as many women as I can to have the better experiences and better prepare themselves to be mothers.
.
🎥 @this_ruh & I are starting our #DoulaDiaries Live Videos this Thursday November 8th at 9PM EST (6PM PST). We will start at the beginning of pregnancy and delve into the First Trimester and everything you need to know about it! If you are pregnant/TTC you will want to attend this! And yes please tag all your preggo friends 💕

. Do you remember your pregnancy like it was yesterday? What do you wish you knew when you were pregnant?

Inspired by @mintcandydesigns I think it’s about time I do an intro post!
. 🧕🏼 I am a mom of 3 (Almost 5, 3, & 1) based in Southern California. I moved here almost 7 years ago & my family is scattered between England, Middle East & Africa! Thank God for What’s app!.
.
✍️ Many people didn’t know this but I have a blog that is almost 2 years old!  I write about motherhood with little kids, breastfeeding, pregnancy, birth, & postpartum mental health (link in my bio 👆🏼).
.
🤓 I am super forgetful & clumsy. My family calls me “ditsy”& Dory is my second name 😂 when my bro& uncles get together it’s “let’s all tease Afra” time 😏.
.
👀 I am very determined. It works against me sometimes but it helps me never give up on the things I want to achieve. .
🤱🏼 I am LOVE breastfeeding & Alhamdullilah nursed both my kids but now with my 3rd I’m having days where I consider weaning. It’s really exhausting & I selfishly want my body back 🤦🏽‍♀️.
.
☀️ My passion is to help mothers (especially with little kids) get out of the funk that brings them down. I know the feelings of bad postpartum, isolating days as a mom & I want to build a community to help mama’s in whatever way I can.
.
🤰🏽 I finished my Doula Training over the summer and want to focus on pregnancy & postpartum support! If you are a pregnant or just had a baby & need support please reach out to me 💕.
.
💪🏼 Everyone thinks I always have it together because I seem to manage things well externally. Honestly most days I scrape through!.
.
🍰 Sugar is the love of my life. I am a huge emotional eater & I can have a large cake at 10 pm just because I have had a rough day. I hate it because it’s the biggest reason I can’t shake off some of my postpartum weight I have. I have cut out SO much since starting @zallibahi #TheFitnest6Week but I’m stuck at those last 5-8 pounds (it seems to fluctuate daily 🙈🤷🏽‍♀️).
.
💕 Sorry for the endless paragraphs but if you read all of this you are AMAZING! I tend to rant on endlessly 🤭😂 And you all know I’m not one to sugar coat anything 😉 What’s one thing you didn’t expect to hear?!

Ever had a crazy week, with 8-12 hour days out of the house, running errands, doing school runs, play dates, cleaning, working, cooking? Man oh man do I feel like a truck hit me this morning. It’s also been pouring (such a blessing) since yesterday. Alhamdullilah, I am going to take advantage of the rain keeping me indoors and relax for a change. What’s your plan this weekend?  I hope you have an amazing one. .

Last night read this in an article on the @thoughtcatalog and it really resonated with what I wanted to share today on this beautiful Friday morning.
.
.“Becoming a mother changes who you are. It changes you in many more ways than can even be described. You constantly have to search your soul for strength and learn more about yourself in the process. Maybe you weren’t who you thought you were before children. Maybe children changed you. I lost who I was before I became a mother, but I found a better version of myself that I’m proud of”.
.
. And that 👆🏼 is why on this mom journey finding ourselves is so important. We loose who we once were and there comes a day where we ask “where did she go and how did I become this now”. And sometimes that can be little sad. But in time when you really sit down and reflect on everything you will realize she is still there but there’s a better version of you. And the optimal state is when we learn to love the new versions of us.
.
.The only way this can happen is if we give ourselves the time we need to be who we want to be. Mother need alone time. Away from the noise and hustle of life. I don’t know if you caught my story where I shared an article about a mother who checks into a hotel twice a year *alone* & it makes her a better mom. All the responses I got was “I wish I could do this”. There was not one mother who said “I have done this and it was amazing”! 😱.
.
.We need to change the narrative and make this “I do that for myself”. What are you going to do for yourself between now and Sunday to take care of YOU and feel good about yourself?  Please share below and tag a mom who needs to hear this.

I know how daunting staying on top of things can be. With all the school runs, cooking, cleaning, errands, and social outings it can get overwhelming if you don’t have your days planned! Last year I reviewed this beautiful Fully Customizable planner (link in my bio) where you can see how I set it up. And today I have teamed up with @personalplanner to give one lucky person a voucher to create their very own planner and yes it can be shipped WORLDWIDE! I will throw in this free digital cover for the planner and will pick a winner on Saturday morning. All you have to do is...

I know how daunting staying on top of things can be. With all the school runs, cooking, cleaning, errands, and social outings it can get overwhelming if you don’t have your days planned! Last year I reviewed this beautiful Fully Customizable planner (link in my bio) where you can see how I set it up. And today I have teamed up with @personalplanner to give one lucky person a voucher to create their very own planner and yes it can be shipped WORLDWIDE! I will throw in this free digital cover for the planner and will pick a winner on Saturday morning. All you have to do is... . 1️⃣ Like this video & Follow @throughmamaseyesblog & @personalplanner 2️⃣ Tag 3 (real) friends in separate comments (the more tags the more entries 😁) 3️⃣ For bonus entries share this post to your stories and tag @throughmamaseyesblog . . . #personalplanner #stayorganized #momplanner #productivemother #productivity #plannerinspiration #muslimmom

Happy Friday 💕 I’m taking a step back from Instagram lately so I’m sorry about my quietness. Butttttt......I had to tell you about a special post I have up on the blog (link in my bio).
.
🤰🏽This is my when I was 6 months pregnant with my youngest last summer. I was desperately preparing for a VBA2C and one of the things that helped me prepare for Labor was Prenatal Chiropractic Care. I did it for both my last pregnancies & saw immense benefits from relieving my back pain till the last trimester and much easier recoveries (I had C-sections after very long traumatic labors). If I had all the money in the world, I would be at a Chiropractor every week, but it’s not cheap.
.
🤰🏽 If you are pregnant or trying for a natural birth (especially a VBAC), please join me in reading about what my lovely Guest Poster @drjanemacris shared about the importance of seeing a Prenatal Chiropractor in your pregnancy. She not only helped my back pain but she helped me deal with trauma I never knew I had. .
.
👩🏼‍⚕️ Please share with me below if you have had prenatal adjustments and how it helped you? We would love to answer any questions you may have! .

He could drive you crazy, he could take his socks off inside out, he won’t pick up after himself, he’ll do things that drive you absolutely bonkers... but the second you see him with the kids... it’s all out the window. .

As much as I wish this week could be longer so I could get more done, I’m so glad it’s almost over. The only reason I survived this week was because of that long weekend! I don’t know about you but having a 3 day weekend should be mandatory. I a lot done over the weekend, from piles of laundry, clearing, some meal prep, play dates, and even a little family time. I squeezed in a little @pinterest scheduling too (make sure you are following me I just hit 500K impressions on there 🎉)!.

.🛏 On another note How comfy does this Grand @dockatot look? It’s really been a lifesaver for sleep and worked out perfectly as we recently moved M over to a crib and we don’t need anything except this in it. Kinda wish I had a nice adult sized @dockatot to sleep in 😂 Head over to my blog (link in my bio) to check out why I love this product so much and comparisons between this size and the #deluxedock! .

Yogurt is just one of the ways I keep my guy healthy. His multi-v and probiotic supplements are really what steal the show. Plus a few other tricks here and there.
PS. It’s getting cooler in Colorado. Today I had to go buy him long pants because he had NONE that fit and it was chilly 🌬🌬🌬

🐑 Eid Mubarak to all my Muslims out there 😍 May all your prayers and fasts this Dhul Hijjah be accepted. May those who were blessed to perform Hajj this year have their efforts accepted and May we be invited to experience that amazing Journey too. 🧕🏼I was the most unprepared this Eid (remember my post about preparing from June 🙈🙊)...I was at @hm last night at 9 pm getting an outfit for my eldest and then at @target  at 10 pm getting goodies for the kids Eid Bags 🙆🏽‍♀️ #mombrain at its finest this week! How has your Eid been?
.
.I’m so happy with how my outfit turned out, super simple, but gorgeous maxi kimono from @infiniteabaya and jumpsuit from @forever21 made me feel like I was wearing wearing something super elegant. Proper outfit pics to come soon! .
