One of the most exciting things about expecting a little one is getting ready for it. From nursery decor ideas to wardrobe selections. One thing that Saudi Arabia and most of the Middle East region excel at is retail shopping. You don’t realize the extent of the children retail sector is until you actually start shopping in it. I was happily surprised to find Zara kids, Mango kids and H&M kids amongst the hundreds of shops dedicated to all things children. Read more
Mentioned in an early blog post that one of the most important steps of getting pregnant no matter where you are is finding an ob/gyn to take on your pregnancy.

It has been a while since we blogged and it was a conscious decision to stop until we thought that continuing would be as authentic as it always is. Personally I decided to stop blogging over the last few months because of personal changes that made it near impossible for me to continue blogging honestly.
We were expecting our first child, here at THEARABMODE , and now having the baby I finally have both the energy and interest to pick up where we left off. As many of you may know, I am an expat and most of my pregnancy was completed outside Saudi Arabia. This is the main reason why I didn’t feel right blogging about life in the Middle East while not being there at the moment.
Happy to say we (I have become baby&me!) are now back in the KSA. Also, the blog will continue to be a guide to help and inform you about life here as it did before. Of course we will be writing the blog with an additional perspective which is motherhood. I hope to share information relating to pregnancy, birthing, and motherhood as best as I can.
Glad to be back
