difficult pregnancy Dubai

1. “Being unable to put shoes on myself!” – Ashita, 39, Sharjah

2. “Constantly thinking of your baby’s health. I remember panicking almost all day, every day in the first trimester, thinking: ‘Is my baby alive? Is my baby okay?’ I used to count down the seconds to go and hear his heartbeat and end up being relieved. It was so worrying before he started kicking. Our constant worry as Mums, I think, is our child’s wellbeing which explains the constant worry throughout pregnancy.”- Afnan, 25, Dubai
