The Miscarriage: The depression?

So was i suffering any form of depression?
Initially i was pretty sure that i am ok and optimistic about it, but at times i felt otherwise.

Not too sure if this is largely due to my heavy weight gain after our wedding.

It's like all the stretched skin, bloated-ness, tummy is perfectly ok if you are preggie or you've given birth to a healthy baby eventually, but suffering from the same symptoms and worse still, there's no baby just reminds me of the miscarriage over and over again.

recently i've been dreaming of babies, as if i'm not feeling emo & depressed enough over my fat figure now.

Gynae says it's best again to try after 2 cycles, but it's also perfectly fine if i happen to conceive again before that.
From most of the source online, almost 80% is saying it's perfectly fine to try as soon as you think you are ready and the reason for gynae to encourage trying after your first cycle is for merely for easy dating purpose.

much as i am impatient and really want to conceive asap, what if it's another failed pregnancy again?
and i hate to be told "i told you so to try after 2 months or to let your body rest first"

How easy is it for one to conceive again after a miscarriage?

i guess i know the situation pretty well...all the more i want to start trying early.

  1. I had a miscarriage too before I had my second son (now 19mo) and it was most discouraging to hear people go on about how it might take ages to conceive again... but 2 mths after my D&C, I found out I was expecting. The first trimester saw me resting as much as I can because I was fearful from my earlier experience, but as I entered the second tri, things eased up and I enjoyed the rest of my pregnancy. My first pregnancy went smoothly (and my eldest son is now 10yo) so it was a shock when I experienced that miscarriage. =) All the best.

  2. Hi daughter of sarah
    thank you for the encouraging note..it's been 3 months + after the D&c and sadly my menses cycle is kind of screwed up...the first cycle came 2 months after the D&C and i'm still waiting for the next cycle which has been almost 2 months already.
    i do hope the cycle gets back to normal soon so that we can start calculating the fertile period and hope to conceive soon.

Our 7 Day 6 Nights Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary Preview

Here's a preview of our Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary for our trip to Taiwan earlier this month in May 2017. You can click on the respective days for a detailed post.

And so we finally embarked on our journey to Taiwan onboard Singapore Airlines! Thanks to Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promo, we decided to splurge a little on the air tickets. The air tickets cost about $1,440 for 2 adults and 1 3.5 yr old.


We spent a total of 7 days 6 nights in Taiwan altogether. But in order to make our Taiwan trip more child-friendly, relaxing,  and to cut down on travelling time, we merely visited the North part of Taiwan primarily - Hsinchu, Yilan and Taipei.

It's never easy travelling with a young one, hence we should not be too ambitious when it comes to planning your Taiwan Child Friendly itinerary. Good thing is, Mr Keir and I have always preferred a chillax itinerary. We're not the type of tourist who loves to jam pack the full day and visit 101 attractions in a trip.

We engag…

Taiwan Kids friendly Accommodation with slides - not your usual list!

And so from a mere idea of bringing Sticky Bean with us to Taiwan, this idea was put into action with Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promotion where you get to pay only $70 for a child's ticket! Though it's not exactly the cheapest option for flying to Taiwan, we thought to pay a little more for better service and not to mention safety since it will be Sticky Bean's first time traveling on a relatively longer flight. Her first plane ride was a really short one to KL, a mere 1 hour away.

If she's manageable on the flight, we can then consider budget airlines such as Scoot or even Jetstar for our subsequent travels.

So why Taiwan?
There are plenty of reasons for our choice other than both Mr. Keir and myself love Taiwan for the food and hospitality. I'm sure you may have come across Awesome kids friendly accommodation with slides and other themed rooms in Taiwan that are trending in facebook. That was one of the many reasons why we want to go Taiwan too!

Alright …

The Miscarriage: : the Mini Confinement after Miscarriage

When it comes to confinement following a miscarriage, there are 101 versions of old wives tales to confuse you.
There're people who say (such as doctors and gynaes), since the pregnancy period is short, less than 3 months, it didn't affect our body much so we actually do not need to do confinement.
But my gynae did mention that of course i can try to avoid the cold, icy stuffs still.

And then there will be the extreme ones who'd think going through a miscarriage is more damaging to a woman's body than giving birth itself and hence one must observe the rules of confinement and the best is to do it for 2 weeks.
But think about this, where on earth to get 2 weeks mc? we are only entitled 14 days mc a year leh...

And then there's the reasonable ones and I'm blessed that both my mother and mother-in-law and even my brother's mother-in-law, who runs a chinese medical hall (TCM) belongs to this group.
So naturally, i fall into this group as well.
According to TCM …
