Q:

Hey everyone... As ramzan starts today... I wanted to ask u all.. Is it fine to keep fastings... M currently 17weeks..



Sonam zarin

i think its ur personal choice... i didn't fast...Its too hot and staying hydrated during pregnancy is must.....also ur fetus needs a lot of nutrition from you...It ks in the 2nd trimester that we get to eat well so listen to jr body and do wat is good for ur baby... ramadan to har sa aega... ur baby is special...

Sheeba Vijesh

hi dear, its certainly not advisable... you can get health problems... aren't women exempted from fasting while mensuration and pregnancy?

Sumira Bhatia

I don't think you should fast.  you could perhaps substitute whole meals with fruits and milk to ensure your baby gets its nutrients

Suhasini Vinod

hey  Zahra.. as per my understanding pregnant n lactating mothers can make up for their fast in later years...

zahra firdous

Thanks Sonam, sheeba, sumira and suhasini.. :)

Hi sheeba.. It's not mandatory to fast during pregnancy..some women do fast.. But as suhasini said can make up for it later...

Durga salvi

hi...zahra...ramzan fasting me subah se shaam tak pani nahi pete hai..aap baad me fast rkhna.. pregnancy n breastfeeding ke time fast nahi rakhte hai aisa hmare old people kahte hai..enjoy in ramzan...take care..

Suhasini Vinod

Sumira Bhatia hey in ramadaan fasting means complete fasting without any food... even water. so she can't have fruits. so we are suggesting her to make up for fasts later n not to fast now :)

pregnancy me water scarcity can cause.many infextions and can affect the level.of.amnio. so better nezxt time. for.lactating mother they can fast. no harm. infact i was also fasting in my breastfeeding time.

Sheeba Vijesh

ya, i know... i have friends 😊... you can make up for it later then dear... pregnancy is a very sensitive period... even while taking everything correctly also health problems arise... here you are not alone, you have a baby to nurture as well... Allah sees your heart, so take care for now.... ☺

Mea 11 week pregnant Hu but I ready Roze k liye muje roza chodhna manzur allha Takat himmat dega agar barosa hai apki marzi ap rakho ya Na rakho

Fatema Lokhandwala

zahra u do not need to fast for ramzan. as in Islam the fast for ramzan are compulsory but ye would be mothers k liye mast hai. and beyond dat u need to stay hydrated and healthy. soo it's batter u do not do

riz rose

i kept.almost 25 roza in my first.preg. but then later.i got.urine infection bcoz.of.lack of water. so dr. advised not to observe more roza.

Thanks sheeba, samreen, fatema and riz rose

zahra firdous

Thanks to all the lovely ladies.. U all have been so helpful... God bless u all :*

Sumira Bhatia

Suhasini Vinod yes,  I am aware but I thought since she wants to perhaps keep it like that. I didn't know that you can keep it later if you're pregnant
