It's great news! Better than--I think it was Princess Raiyah's birthday falling on day of KH's death. I always thought that sad. Was it a normal delivery or C section? Have they all been natural or did Rania ever experience a difficulty and have to have a section?

You are correct. QR maintained an unbelievable schedule throughout pregnancy--even participating in run/walk for charity early on. She is a runner and believes in staying fit--even during pregnancies. And, yes, some women--even w/o such a regimen--bounce back and are into normal clothes very quickly. My good friend here did have to watch her diet as she had gestational diabetes...but gained 50 pounds and was into size 6 jeans within 5 weeks of giving birth w/o any exercise!!!! I'm jealous; the usual thought is it will be a year before everything is back to normal. I'm so happy the baby looks great and has been pronounced healthy--and QR too!

Do children have "godparents?"

Very interesting! The official naming ceremony is done by the King...correct? I was just curious as QN had mentioned something about it but I didn't understand who did what and when?

Another question: Do the children have "godparents" or the equivalent? I have never read anything on this issue and have studied a bit regarding Islamic traditions but this was not mentioned. Does anyone know?

Thank you!

no godparents aren't part of Islamic tradition.
And you're question about whether Rania had a C-section, i dont know much about that sort of thing but the picture of Rania with the baby was taken the day after she gave birth. I'd assume that means she had a normal delivery. Unless she was strong enough after the surgery to get up and have her picture taken.

Many women do excercise during their pregnancy but they cant do anything too rigorous and certainly not close to the time of giving birth. I remember hearing that Julia Roberts was doing pilates during her pregnancy but was advised by her doctor to stop doing it. So I dont think that Rania was working out too much. Also, if you look at pictures of her when she was expecting Salma, she had a rounder face and was more chubbier compared to this time. I guess how much weight a woman gains varies from one pregnancy to another.

Besides all the good points mentioned here (weight gain during pregnancy, exercising, diet, natural body shape or type, etc.), rapid and immediate weight loss following the birth of a baby can also have a lot to do with water retention. Some women gain a lot of weight during their pregnancy but sometimes it is really water weight rather than actual pounds. If it's mainly water weight gain, post-delivery women loose the weight very quickly.

A friend gained 32 pounds during her pregnancy (which is normal -- you're supposed to gain 30-35 pounds). Her son was born two weeks early and weighed 6 pounds. Two days after the delivery she had lost 25 pounds without lifting a single dumb bell or putting on her running shoes -- all because she was heavily swollen during her pregnancy and had retained a lot of water.

It would be even more unexpected if they'd named him Hamzah. Hehe :p

Excellent point! No, she would be unusual if she were strong enough to go through surgery and be well enough to pose the next day. She looks great. The water weight point is a good one, too......I lost 30 pounds just in water weight after delivery as I had toxemia. That only left 40 more!!!!! Ugh!
