I'm sure, you know that pregnancy lasts up to 9/10 months or 40 weeks mathematically. That's true in this case. The distance between of the two births is more than 11 month. Sheikha Hind quickly became pregnant again after the birth of Sheikha Maryam.

And between Jan & march it possible to become pregnant again ,, it’s just need 40 days after pregancy not possible ,, but then sure possible ! ,, And from march to Dec 9 months and that pregnancy period !! :flowers: so it’s possible .

Maybe....sometimes it happens. Certainly exhausting!

blauerengel 01-19-2013 06:40 PM

Certainly exhausting too...Sheikha Futtaim has won an Endurance Championship on December 28th 2012! Her victory was not so well-publicised so I only found out today-Congratulations to her and everyone else who participated in the ride:-)

Mohammed bin Rashid attends Ladies Endurance Challenge - Emirates 24/7

The headline is a bit misleading-it should rather be "Sheikha Futtaim rides to victory for a second time (watched by her father)".

What is this 40 days thing? Not 39 not 41?

After a delivery it takes up to 40 days until the bleeding are over and the woman's uterus has receded to its normal size. Only then a new pregnancy is possible. Sometimes this period it may be slightly shorter or longer.

In the UAE, this time is seen as a special time of tranquility of the woman who gave birth to a child. She will be specially spoiled by all family members at this time and has only one purpose: to relax and recharge.

Hello all, I am new. I have been reading as a guest for a while and there is one sibling who really stands out for all the rumors going on about him. Sheikh Rashid, the eldest who would be a natural choice as the next ruler of Dubai. He seems to have a strong personality, natural leader type and all. But people here speculate that something went wrong. Can someone who knows really confirm what happened? People avoid this issue. I read quite a few posts asking too. Can we put it to rest?

Someone posted in an "article" that he killed an assistant. Which seems really extreme. Other rumors say he was in rehab for drugs. Others say he refused to marry a cousin like the rest of the royals and has an American girlfriend. What really happened? Why is the eldest son considered the black sheep of the family?

dazzling 01-20-2013 05:09 AM

:welcome:
Nobody really knows what has happened to Sheikh Rashid or why he isn't in the public much. Everything so far can be called false news until a confirmation (which is unlikely) to be made by the family. Sheikh Rashid has been seen from time to time at events.

Imanmajed 01-20-2013 05:09 AM

First: Welcome to the forum. We look forward to your posts here.
:welcome:
To your questions: The issue of succession in rule is not automatically determined by the time of birth, but depends on the personal qualities and skills of a Sheikh in the UAE.

In the past 10 years there was several things which have spoken against an appointment of Sheikh Rashid as CP and showed his inappropriate character evidently. Also a lot of rumors are circulating about Sheikh Rashid. The truth is hidden surely somewhere in between. We can discuss here only by assumption. We will not be able to find the truth definitely. There is no public statement from the al Maktoum family for that issue which provides a clear explanation. That such a statement still takes place in the future is unlikely.

The subject of Rashid's fall from grace has been discussed extensively in earlier 'Sheikh Mohammed's Children' threads. The more factual and detailed reasons won't be that hard to find. The short version is Rashid's dishonesty: he entered into a contract to do with horses, he subsequently refused to pay what he legally owed, then lied to his father when questioned about the matter, with the end result being severe embarrassment to Sheikh Mohammed and the family when the aggrieved party sought legal redress, thereby placing the issue - which reflected poorly on Rashid's character - in the public record.

How did the family announce the births in the past? (I know little Zayed's birth was announced via twitter, but that must not be the cases of the Sheikh's elder children right?). Did they even announce it?

In the past they haven´t announced a birth publicly, like they do it now. With the advent of modern communication facilities the announcement of a birth to a larger public became fashionable. Before 2006 Sheikh Mohammed wasn´t the ruler of Dubai. He took this position over after the death of his brother Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid, who was previously the ruler of Dubai. Only Sheikh Zayed and Sheikha Al Jalila were born after he took office.

Hi, I was watching a video on youtube on shiekh mohammed site and saw Rashid holding a little girl. It was in December 2012 after an endurance race Hamdan won. Hamdan hugged his father and Rashid. Then he moved so Rashid could hug his father. Rashid looked past his father as if he didn't want to be bothered then left. Something isn't right with that relationship. Nevertheless, I was glad to see Rashid looking good and well.
Who was the little girl he was holding? Shiekh Mohammed kissed her. Is that Rashid's daughter? She was about 2yrs old.

christythedreamer 01-26-2013 02:32 AM

^ perhaps u could post the video link here? I don't know Rashid has children btw!
