After our last meetup with our previous gynae, Dr Wee, we decided to look around and see if there are other gynaes we could probably go with. We wanted to find someone we were 100% comfortable with. Personally, it doesn’t matter if it’s a male or a female doctor. I’m cool with both. Meeting Dr Benjamin Tham was like a breadth of fresh air. He didn’t look very “modern” on his website here but he turned out to be everything…View Post

Prettttttyyyy self explanatory blogpost. Just wanted to do a short shoutout on exciting things to come. My nesting instinct has led me to start Project Nursery, hashtagged #ProjectNursery. I’ll be documenting ideas and inspirations and of course, my humble journey of building Baby Bean’s upcoming new room. We are lucky to have a spare room entirely for the baby in space-constrained Singapore. It’s going to be SO MUCH FUN. I’ll prolly drive the husband up the wall cos those nesting…View Post
Right in the first trimester of my pregnancy, my breasts already started growing. The bras I currently have are getting increasingly uncomfortable, so I started looking for where to buy maternity bras. I did not rush out to get more appropriately sized bras because I was wondering if the size will fluctuate anymore. That’s until I read the part where the Baby Book said the size at the end of the first trimester will more or less be stable and…View Post
My friend recommends getting a baby carrier over a pram. She says that it’s so much more convenient for her to just tie the baby to herself and walk “handsfree”. She gets on and off public transport a whole lot faster too. It lets her keep her baby close while getting other chores done. My mother in law, however, feels that a baby carrier in Singapore’s weather is inappropriate. Primary reason being that it’s overly humid here and temperatures are…View Post

Dr Wee Horng Yen or Dr Benjamin Tham? I recovered enough from my shock of being pregnant to google for recommended gynae / gynecologists in Singapore. Preferably in the Novena area. My friends recommended Dr Benjamin Tham at Thomson Medical Centre (TMC), but he’s super busy and the next available appointment was in like… 2 weeks?! I think I would have gone insane wondering what to do in 2 weeks. I did more research and found a forum thread talking…View Post
