The small bump agony.

I’m going into my 4th month in the next few weeks and all I can say is..time is passing too fast. My baby bump is hardly visible when I’m in my usual wear. That said, I can tell you that no one on the streets can tell that I’m pregs just like that. I don’t expect anyone to give up their seats to me on the train either. Sometimes the reserved seat is empty and I’m so embarassed to sit […]

CNY Eve X Ang Pows

You know that when you are married, it’s no longer your turn to receive ang pows. That’s probably one of the minus points of being married early (Maybe that’s why couples are all marrying later and later eh!). Like I’ve just whatsapp an ex-colleague about his upcoming wedding in March which I’m gonna be absent for as his wedding clashes with another cousin of mine, ‘Hey, M, please remember it’s your last year to receive as many ang pows as […]

I’m a PG SAHM with slight M/S and my GYN is awesome.

That said, it actually meant ‘I’m a Pregnant Stay At Home Mum with slight Morning Sickness and my Gynecologist is Awesome’. Did you have the same frustrations as me? Reading those forum with these abbreviations and acronyms that doesn’t quite make sense at all? Ok, maybe some are easily guessed, such as EDD (Estimated Delivery Date), that’s a must know basic for everyone. I understand that it must be quite crazy to type out the full forms of some acronyms or it’s […]

You are what you watch.

Don’t be silly. There’s nothing wrong with watching horror shows. Nothing proven scientifically anyways. So that said, we can attribute this saying to one of the olden days old wives tale/myth. The only thing that kept me about 50/50 at bay is the shocks I can possibly get when there is a scare scene.. but unless you get nightmares or you grow too deeply into the show and imagine you are a lethal killing machine. I honestly think it is […]

Satisfy thy craving while they last.

A friend told me that your cravings will only come in after 3 months…but I think otherwise. I won’t say that I crave for some food so bad if I don’t get it I will rather die of hunger. That’s extreme. Afterall, if you’re that hungry enough, you will probably eat whatever is served up to you. But I do have this new set of taste bud that prefers spicier and saltier food. I am trying to cut down on […]

Small but beautiful.

I’m talking about my baby bump. No, I’m not only talking about my bump, I’m also talking about my chest. Remember the last post I was rambling that Singapore does not have pretty maternity bras? Remember that I said that my friend has recommended me one particular store that would become my last option? I always trusted this girlfriend and I’m super glad that this recommendation was an exact match for me. In terms of maternity bras that is, since […]

Empty handed.

Nursing a severe headache that lasted me the entire of last night and one of the worse morning sickness of these (coming) 3 months, I made a trip down to source for some good maternity wear. Even I wasn’t expanding fast enough to go all out for maternity wear, my ribcage was. I honestly can’t breathe really well cause the ribcage was expanding but not the boobs and I deduced so as the width of my current lingerie was too […]

Le Update at 11 weeks.

Last night, I have this witty something in my mind to blog about for today. I kept it fresh in my head, thinking that it would be fresh for writing in the morning. Alas, I woke up and it seemed like I lost that bit of memory. So my dear readers..that witty something will come back when it’s happy I guess! I’ve spent this week finishing up some library books and scaring myself silly with those pregnancy to-dos when your […]

An emotional Hope Springs.

I admit, I have not exactly been a healthy mother (yet). All these late nights..all these chips..all these..you get my drift. So last night we were watching Hope Springs (you know, that movie that feature two oldies revving up their life cause it was stagnant).  I knew I wanted to watch this when the trailer came out. It was not your typical love story with gorgeous hunks and babes starring in it. It was Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones, […]
