Happy birthday to me

"Dear, what would you like to do on your birthday?", my wife asked.

Our birthday celebrations are becoming more spontaneous like our traveling style. We tend to take it as it comes and go with the flow. It's not really what you're doing or where you're going, but who you're with that matters. You can be doing the most boring thing on earth, yet having the most awesome time with the one you love.

Kranji War Memorial

"How about visiting the Kranji War Memorial?", I replied after some thought.

How we found out I was pregnant

When we shared the news that Ken & I are expecting, friends & family members were curious to know how we found out I was pregnant. So we thought we could write this down to share our experience here.

Here's a very short background prior to us discovering I was pregnant:
In Oct 2014, I had missed my period and like all couples who are actively trying for a child, I tested to see if I was pregnant and the results came back negative. Over the next 2 months, I had still not had my period & all pregnancy tests came back negative. So we saw a fertility specialist and got some medication (Duphaston) mid-Jan to induce my mensus so we could proceed to take some pills for the ovulation.

I was told that upon taking Duphaston, my period should come sometime after 2-3 weeks, so we monitored and waited. Meanwhile, I started experiencing cramps on the 3rd and 4th week after taking the medication as well as light spotting.  With the cramp getting worsening, I got worried and decided to call up the gynaecologist & asked if that was a normal reaction to the medication and was told that it should be something else that is causing the cramps. The nurse told me to wait a few more days to see if my period came.
