Being a new parent, I am experiencing lots of changes and dilemmas. Decisions that I’ve to make for the well being of my child and family. I want to share my thoughts and would like to learn from more parents alike to understand how different parents cope in Singapore. Hope you can help with a simple survey, will take about 3-8 minutes to complete.

Once a good number of replies are received, I’ll consolidate the result and publish it here. Do help share with your friends and relatives who have young children too.

It’s Positive!

It was late for a week and I began to have crazy thoughts in my mind. I tested it two days after my menses was due and it came out negative. Not wanting to believe that its actually happening, I drank all kind of cooling drinks to force the menses to come. After a week, it didn’t, and I knew something is amiss.

Bought another brand’s test kit and I tested. Double lines! It was faint, but its there, I could see it. Tested it again twice and the result was the same. I’m pregnant!

Lots of emotions and thoughts flowed through my mind, I was confused. I love kids and has always wanted some of my own. And when its here, I didn’t know what to do. Am I ready for this child? Will my financial ability be sufficient and will everything else fall into place nicely over the next 10 months?

The plan was to find a house in June and move in by September since our wedding is planned for November. But now that I’m expecting and due in September, things got to move faster. From a 11 months long plan, we need to adapt and move at a speed both of us felt pressured to. After talking about it we decided. Its meant to be and we will take the step forward together.

Journey of the loving mum, me, starts here.
