We are just under a month shy of our the first anniversary of our triplet pregnancy loss. It's funny because I thought I'd come to terms with things a lot sooner. As it turns out, perhaps I'm only just beginning to overcome my grief. I truly have little idea where I am on this grief … Continue reading Challenging Grief.
2019 has been a helluva journey. We won some, we lost some, but we made it through. Together. With friends and family. Running through 65 photos summing up our year. For once, I cannot wait to bid this year goodbye and for the new year to begin. Or decade as many have been reminding me. … Continue reading Saying Goodbye to 2019.
I met with Lesley on Sunday for what was supposed to be brunch. Currently living where we are, I couldn't for the life of me get a taxi or a Grab (the Singapore Uber), because we live too far out. Moreover, the price of a Grabcar to get me into town was $30 and I … Continue reading Beauty in Destruction
Routine Screening I went back for my gynaecologist check up on Monday - 6 weeks after miscarrying our triplets. Dr. Thia recommended a Pap since I had CIN 1 a couple years ago. He wanted to make sure that it's still being kept at bay. They're also going to check for HPV. Keeping my fingers … Continue reading 6 Week Update.
I've been back to the kitchen baking up sweet treats once more. Last post, I shared my lychee cupcakes recipe and a couple posts before there, a lovely Italian ragu. This cake below, a private order, was what spurred me back into getting my hands dirty. On Saturday, I was invited to share at a … Continue reading Recipe: Banana Walnut Rye Bread.
The Italy series have finally come to a close. I wrote most of my Italy posts back to back over a week or two in order to keep my mind occupied. Since then, I have been doing a few other things. For one, I mentioned in my post 'Love and Loss' about a little something … Continue reading Seeking the Rainbow
I woke up this morning and in minutes, had tears spilling down my cheeks as I laid in bed, body still aching from last week's ordeal. A couple days ago, I felt that I wanted to do something positive in memory of the babies we'd lost. So I started the ball rolling, and perhaps, if … Continue reading Love and Loss.
I was meant to continue with my Italy journals, but I cannot pretend that this didn't just happen. I cannot continue writing those entries as though unaffected. So here it is, the hardest blog entry I hope to ever write. A few months ago, I blogged about Flo and I finally conceiving. We were beyond … Continue reading The Hardest Post I Hope to Ever Write.
9 March 2019, I started round two of SO-IUI at KKH. This time, I was put on Puregon which was a lot easier to inject than Menopur since I didn't have to withdraw the solution manually. Everything was in a pen and I just had to set it to the amount I was prescribed, and … Continue reading Part Three. Three’s Not a Crowd.
This post was written on 4 December 2018. I didn't want to publish it because I wasn't ready yet. Now seems like the right time because it's the first part of the journey I am now on with Flo. There will be three parts to this, with the other two parts being published by end … Continue reading Part One. Infertility: Our Journey So Far.
