Salaam sistas!
Salaam, everyone, & Ramadan Mubarak! :) My name's Lindsey & my husband of 8 years & I converted to Islam 4.5 years ago, elhamdolillah (he's 100% Syrian but his family isn't religious.at.all.). We have a 19 m/o & are expecting a little girl this Dec, insha'Allah. I see this board's not very active but I sure hope to get to know some of y'all :)

Welcome Lindsey and wa alaikum essalam! :D Ramadan Mubarak to you and you family as well, it's great to see you here! I just became host of the board recently and am looking to bring it back to life. Insha'allah as others realize it's going again they will join! How is Ramadan going for your family? :)

Re: Salaam sistas!
DH & I are the only ones that observe Ramadan in both our families, but it's going fantastic for us. I'm not able to fast, so I'm trying to make up for that in many other areas! How's yours been?!

Re: Salaam sistas!
Mine has been okay so far :) it is just me and my son in my family (he is far too young to fast) so this year has mostly been focused on talking about it with him, as he is just getting old enough to understand. He has been joining me for iftar and suhoor some days so that is nice :).

I remember having a hard time when I was pregnant/nursing with my son and not fasting, hope your Ramadan is still feeling festive! I tried to get into the spirit at that time by doing Taraweeh, which helped a little (none of that this year with the late hrs since he really has to be asleep by then).

What are you doing to help make Ramadan special while not fasting? I bet there are some other sisters on here going through that right now, I definitely could have used some tips at that time myself :)
