Finding out the Gender of Our Baby - It's a Baby Girl!

Just went for our nerve-wrecking 20 weeks detailed scan yesterday, will blog more about it  later on while contemplating to post some of our lil princess's scans not - kind of pantang you see.
But can't blame me after what i've went through, better to be safe than sorry.

still can't wait to share this piece of exciting news.


We're having a Baby Girl!!


contrary to most people's guesses, well almost everyone was guessing that i'm having a boy, based on how swell up i look, how swollen my nose is, how greasy my hair became and how my skin broke out so badly on the face, on the body, everywhere~!!

It was a no wonder that our dear little girl was so shy, for the past few scans, she's either clamping her legs so tightly together or she's in a kneeling, cross legged position with her feet covering the groin area that we have difficulty finding out the gender.
Even during the 30 minutes detailed scan, she was also in the cross-legged position, knees bent, covering her groin totally such that the sonographer almost gave up.
And then, I spoke to baby, ask her to be guai and please straighten her legs for daddy and mummy to see for a while, and guess what?
She straightened her legs almost immediately! It all happened too fast and i didn't expect that to happen till the sonographer went like -oh she's moving she's moving, it's a circle, it's a girl! ya, a girl and she repeated thrice it's a girl. - as noted by our dear Mr. Keir.

at the point in time, a wave of emotions came over me, there were tears in my eyes, i was filled with joy and felt relieved at the same time.
Mainly because we were kind of paranoid that baby always seemed to be in kneeling position with legs folded, we were worried that it could be due to lack of space that causes baby not to straighten her legs or if she's having any problems straightening her legs at all.
now that we have a perfect view of her with her legs straightened & sonographer commenting her posture looks alright and ok, we felt so relieved..

no words can describe how relieved we felt after our detailed scan when everything went smoothly, most important of all, my amniotic fluid is detected as Normal by the sonographer!!

Not sure if being so emotional is one of the pregnancy traits but after our 20 week scan, i seemed to feel even more bonded with our baby girl, perhaps i've been holding back prior to the 20 week scan for fear of bad results.

for now, i can't wait to start scouting around for girly clothings & items for our little princess. it's tough buying clothes for baby when you've no idea what the gender is.. though we've bought a few pieces of rompers and mittens here and there...and ...oh we need to start shortlisting the name too!!

i'm still feeling so excited now as i'm typing this!!

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 …
