Prenatal Pilates at Pilates Fitness

Pregnant as I am, but I know I need to get my ass up and start exercising. I checked out some prenatal exercises that I could participate in and decided on trying out Prenatal Pilates. I have fitness goals like increasing my metabolism, flexibility and strength that I want to achieve but haven’t been able to because I didn’t know where I could go or do besides swimming. And swimming was getting a bit boring for me, so Prenatal Pilates…

Baby Scan: Week 10 – Dr Benjamin Tham at Thomson Medical Centre

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…

Where to buy Maternity Bras

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…

Something to note when buying a baby carrier

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…
