Back-dating again..the Early Pregnancy Symptoms

Here i am, back-dating my posts and yes you may have guessed the reason for doing so!!
by the time you see this post, i'm already 12 weeks preggie! safe into 2nd trimester.

After the last miscarraige in July 2012, my menses cycle has been erractic.

and then in early March, i had this strong feeling that i could be pregnant and decided to whip out the test kit to prove myself right.

There it was 2 visible, strong lines.


The line is so much more obvious and visible as compared to my previous pregnancy..
Still trying not to be disappointed, I've bought a different test kit just to confirm that I am indeed preggie.



The early pregnancy symptoms:
was having what seemed like pre-menses cramp
whole body was aching and it felt like a flu is coming
My temperature remained high even after what i though could be ovulation and did not drop since


Not wanting to go through what we went through with the previous pregnancy that ended up in a miscarriage. i.e. not wanting to visit the gyane so soon from detecting only a pregnancy sac to seeing the foetus forming and heartbeat and eventually losing the heartbeat at the 10th week check up.
We've decided to booked our first gynae appointment only at end of March, which i should be estimated at about 8 weeks.
There should be a heartbeat by then.

Symptom in 5th week.
 the morning sickness worsen. Used to be just feeling very bloated and gagging when i smell certain things. But i just started puking this morning after walking into the pantry and smelling a colleague's oily, beehoon breakie. gosh...still feeling quesy in the stomach.

I've on and off light brown spottings and a tinge of red spotting for a day. thank god the red spotting is just a one-time event and it did not happen again.

crampings on and off that felt really different from menses cramp. this time round it felt like muscles were stretching from within the uterus.

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!

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 …
