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.

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
