Pregnancy Week 6

Hmm entering into Week 6, We pushed forward our first Gynae appointment to coming Saturday instead. kind of excited and looking forward but afraid at the same time.
due to the past miscarriage I can't help but let my imagination run wild about this pregnancy.

Really do hope it will be a smooth pregnancy and baby will be healthy and born full term.

At 6 weeks, the brown spotting seemed to stopped. My morning sickness was so much better, I kind of stopped puking though I still feel queasy and nauseous occasionally.

Been feeling tired most of the day and still sleeping early at 10ish at night.
Finding it hard to focus at work
Finding drinking plain water a challenge, there seems to be a bitterness in the plain water.
still feeling bloated but definitely eating more compared to in week 5 where I cant finish a meal.

Post result - after our first appt at the gynae

We're able to detect the heartbeat! Gynae is more confident in this pregnancy then the previous as well and even commented that heartbeat is strong so all is good.
Unlike the previous pregnancy, where gynae just kept reminding us that we're still in early pregnancy and anything can happen..this give us confidence.

but it did not remove my phobia...each time I went for my scan, i'd get paranoid and worry if the heartbeat will stop beating any moment...


  1. Hello
    I happened to read your blog when I search about foods to eat after miscarriage. Then I started reading your blog becos I am having the same kind of feelings(esp the green monster part worst still my sis is pregnant ard the same time as me)& I believe I'll have the same phobia as you for my next pregnancy (I hope I still can & will be soon). I have been negative since I went thru d&c on 22 April. Although my gynae said is very common nowadays but I still couldn't believe such thing happen to me.
    Nevertheless I still try my very best to think positive & pray hard I can get pregnant soon & will have a smooth pregnancy & healthy baby.
    Sorry for such long mail. I just feel like sharing wif u..
    Lastly hope everything will smooth for you & best luck :)

  2. hi wendy..

    so sorry to hear about your lost as well. please do be positive. I know it's tough and all the more I was very impatient to conceive. did my D&C in July last year and only managed to get pregnant in March this year.
    I think to totally get over it, we will need to have a full healthy pregnancy.
    even for now i'm very paranoid about the little one inside due to the previous experience and especially when it was a missed miscarriage I tend to be really scared before each gyane appointment as I do not want to be "surprised" by any more bad news...

    even though i'm past 12 weeks and gynae keep saying that bb is very stable for now and anything untoward should not happen unless it's due to accident or something I still feel really paranoid if the bb's heart will just stop beating anytime. especially when my next appointment is a month away.

    keep faith and you'll be blessed with another baby soon!

  3. Hi Drea, similar to Wendy, I stumbled on your post when I was googling on foods to eat after a miscarriage. Specifically the ba zhen soup. Thank you for your blog, it's been inspiring and strikes a cord with me. Many of the emotions I'm going through I read them here and it tells me I'm not alone...or paranoid.. Congrats on your baby and keep on posting!

    1. Hi petite bois
      Thank you for leaving me a note and I'm glad that my blog has been able to inspire you.
      After my first miscarriage I actually realized that miscarriages are a lot more common than we thought and things happened for a reason.
      More importstly we must know how to take good care of our body to condition it and wait till it's ready to conceive again.
      Unless one went through what we did else I doubt anyone can truly understand why we are so paranoid and the fear of each gynae visit.
      Even on the day I deliver I'm worried about having a still birth.
      Do have faith and I'm sure all of us will be rewarded just like how I'm being rewarded with our precious baby Ashlene though premature but at least she's given the clean bill of health.

BTO Keys Collection and BTO Door Opening Ceremony

And so after a long 4 years wait, our BTO is finally ready for keys collection. To be honest we totally forgot about out BTO and was pleasantly surprised to receive an SMS from HDB to inform us of our BTO keys collection date. That was when we frantically tried to hunt for an ID. Ok to cut the story short, here's what happened on the BTO keys collection day as well as what we did for our "BTO Door Opening Ceremony". There really wasn't an official BTO door opening ritual or ceremony in fengshui. I guess this is just a Singapore custom. Though we do not have a religion, in particular, we just did it for an ease of mind. Love the  living room view from our 30th storey BTO view from our Service Yard BTO Key Collection Process at HDB Time took: less than an hour It was a very straightforward and easy process. Here's what you need to prepare, assuming that you are taking the loan from HDB. Identity cards Marriage certificate if you are buying

Our Muji Home Reno Journey | Electrical works and Aircon Trunking

Before embarking on our Muji Home renovation journey, I never knew that the bulk of the work comes from the electrical wiring and the importance of electrical works. In fact, we totally overlooked that part. How many sockets needed and where to place them. Before we selected our ID, we met one of them onsite and the ID just went on asking us how many sockets and lighting point we need in this room, where we need the socket to be located at ...bla bla bla all of these during our first on-site meeting. Trust us, we never had such a pressurising consultation before. Tips for you A lesson learnt from our experience, perhaps before you even meet your IDs or contractors, spend some time in your BTO and visualise how you want to use the space and place your furniture. For us, we thought we can come to that much later when the renovation is almost complete but boy we are so wrong about that. You should already know how many sockets you need and where you want it to be placed from the be

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
