    Nausea during pregnancy

    I experienced horrible nausea and sometimes vomitting in my first trimester (up till mid second trimester) too... Just have to avoid taking the things that would trigger...

    Recommendations Maternity Insurance

    I got the prudential one which unfortunately is a ILP. I think you can check out Great Eastern, which does not have ILP. But I think the policy is limited to a three year coverage only. After that you have to get another insurance plan for the baby.

    Hihi, yes only after when your baby has a birth certificate then you can register on the waiting list. It is very hard to get into centres in the sengkang and punggol area due to the large numbers of young families there. Just try your luck and hopefully you can get a slot. Usually if you drop...

    Any reviews on PEM Confinement Agency?

    Hi everyone, just sharing my experience with PEM thus far- I wrote in to enquire about their confinement nanny packages, only to find myself bombarded with phone calls by this lady named "hui" who, at the very first point of my enquiry, already wanted me to lock down a date for their consultant...

    Childcare questions.

    Hmm.. Then that is pretty odd then.. If there is only 5 children in the class, surely something can be done.. Its a relatively small group..

    Childcare questions.

    Hi there fellow mummy, does this issue of drinking water only happen in school or is it a struggle that is also faced at home? If it is a struggle that is also faced at home then it would be the same struggle that the teachers face in school too. Bearing in mind that the teachers don't only have...

    First trimester loss of appetite

    In my first trimester, I had to take only soft food or soupy stuff. Each time I ate things with rice or if my meal is slightly filling, I start to feel sick.. Although they say that it is good to take small meals, I'm working in a rather hectic environment and it is just not possible to take...

    Nope I don't know my baby's gender yet. Wasn't able to tell at my 13th week scan as baby had legs crossed in front. Was told by my gynae that he will be able to tell me the gender by my next visit in mid March. Really looking forward to it :) Then again, it doesn't matter if it is a boy or a...
