I think I had the worse experience with Epidural, both times with Adam & Hana. When doing my birth plan with my Doctor the first time we decided to get epidural. I heard horror stories about it and I was so worried. So the time came and I got admitted, an hour or so before I gave birth I was injected with it and my god it was painful! Right before I gave birth my aunt came to check how I was and suddenly her face changed and she started screaming at the nurses & midwives, my back was bleeding and had what looked like black blood coming out as well. So the anesthesiologist came and did it again. You can imagine the pain of having to stay still while having bad contractions! It was painful!
When is it the perfect time to pack your hospital bag and little one? What do you really need for the both of you? What does baba need to pack?
I feel like I am pro now and know what I should pack and what I can leave behind. First pregnancy you always tend to pack everything, I basically moved my whole house to the hospital! Second pregnancy is so much different.
Planing our trip to Milan & Zurich was so exciting! I’ve never been to Italy before so I was particularly excited about Milan. Booked our flights, tickets, trains and everything. Few days before traveling that’s when I started getting so nervous. Adam is 11 months and it’ll be the first time traveling with him. I didn’t know what to expect! He normally gets restless so easily when at home so we always go for walks, go to the park, walk to spinneys or something active. How was I going to keep him entertained in a plane for 7 hours?
You can imagine my excited when I received my invitation to the VFDE in Dubai Mall! Who doesn’t know Vogue?

It was a pool of talented designers putting forward their latest collections. From catwalks to presentations, FFWD was full of surprises & great speakers.
As I got dressed up to go to OSN 2016 party held at Music Hall, Zabeel Saraya, I was filled with excitement! I couldn’t wait! Any night where Antonio Banderas and Maisie Williams are in the picture, you know it’ll be amazing!
It started with a photoshoot at the Gulf News office with the Editor Louisa Wilkins. The shoot was about beauty which involved a make over with a day look & a night look. The question remained, what is real beauty?
