Update plus baby

As Salaamu Aalaykum! I've been hibernating for months and it was due to a difficult pregnancy, hurricane Sandy and the beast that is hyperemesis gravidarium. ALHAMDULILLAH the hostile takeover came to a peaceful, sleep deprived water birth ending a month ago. Yeah, took me that long to

a) let people know I was expecting and
b) let them know I'd already given birth. lol. Sorry.

Alhamdulillah we survived hurricane Sandy with minimal damage although living without electricity or heat wasn't fun.  We did evacuate and stayed with inlaws and while they didn't have heat or electricity they did have running water! OH YEAH! My kids loved it, they thought it was a week long sleep over.

Working on Ramadan Battle Plan and getting used to juggling two very active toddlers and a newborn. Alhamdulillah I'm happy were I am. Just a few months ago I seriously felt I was losing my sanity during my squabble with my family member. Now I've matured and can handle this kind of garbage better.

Life is indeed good.

@Jana baby! man I think I'm done with #3 it was pretty rough. Pregnancy is progressively getting worst for me and frankly with hyperemesis and losing 18% of my weight in weeks I don't know how I survived.
