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!!

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
