Naming Bean.

These past few weeks we have been trying to decide on a name for bean, both English and Chinese. You may assume that the English name was the easy part but no, apparently we have kind of settled for a chinese name but the english one was quite meh. Initially we have got one in mind…just that very special only name that we both liked. But I’m having second thoughts because of the last name that goes along with it […]

Halfway mark.

I’m currently into my 5th month, that only meant another few more months to go. How time flies when you’re busy working. That said, I haven’t been actively piling up those baby knowledge and making up my mind for confinement stuff either. Too busy. Le sigh. My feet have also started to feel the weight pile even though bean is only about 400grams. . Maybe the rest of the weight came from my own weight gain? 😛 Either way I […]

Something amusing.

I have this app installed on my phone..ok fine, android phone. It’s a baby app and it tracks the progress of bean on a weekly basis. On the very day that bean turned 4 months old, the app updated itself and told me that bean was the size of a bell pepper. Not kidding. They always use food items to describe the size. I remembered seeing tomato once. Not trusting that a bell pepper measures 10cm, I googled. Well…I proved […]

Ahhh-Choo!

That’s the tone to sneezing just in case you didn’t realize. Haha! I have been sneezing non stop since the day I was preg. It’s by no way any sort of coincidence. I was already very allergic to dust, but I believe I was even more so into pregnancy. The sneeze is like a non-stop remix on days…and for the rest of the days, my nose is just really dsturbed by itches from dust. To make matters worse, I sometimes […]

Happy 4 months baby!

On my last week’s visit to the gynae, bean was 4 months old! How time flies with the blink of an eye. Like the last post I said that gender doesn’t matter, it still doesn’t matter to me. It’s not on a need to know basis, it was more of a good to know basis personally. I can’t wait to start buying clothes for bean, regardless of gender. Knowing the gender also gives us a better lap time of naming […]

Daily dosage: Clarins Tonic Body Treatment Oil

They say that if your mum has stretch marks when she’s pregnant..high chances of you getting it too is inevitable. I’m choosing not to believe in that. I asked my mum to show me her stretch marks the other day and hers were really faint lines. Okay, maybe hers got lighter with the times but it didn’t seem like a war took place so I think I’m quite spared on this one. Nevertheless, I’m striving to acheive close to zero […]

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 […]
