Fasting during first trimester
Salam (meaning peace)
I hope you're all In great health and your family is as well.
I don't know if you are familiar with Ramadan, as Muslims we fast for one whole month. Not eating anything from the sun coming up to the sun going down. It's a spiritual month for us muslims, ( search it online, if you don't get it). Now let me get to the point, I am 6 weeks and 6 days pregnant. I have fasted some days and missed some. Sometimes I can fast and not get sick but other times I feel so hungry and really dizzy. I have some friends who were pregnant and fasted the whole month- I am asking you guys to help me decide on what to do? Since I'm at my first should I focus on the nutrients my child is getting or fast? Please try to respect my religion- and be nice.
