As some of you guys know, I'm currently pregnant with my second kid which is a girl. Friends have been asking me if there are any differences between expecting a boy and a girl so I thought I should blog this out!

To make this more fun, I will share a common myth and will indicate if it's true for me or false!

Common myth #1

If you are pregnant with a girl, you will tend to break out as "girls steal your beauty". If you are pregnant with a boy, your skin will be glowing.

FALSE.

Both pregnancies, I didn't break out nor did my skin "glow". I have dull skin and hardly have any pimples and acne. Both skin conditions were exactly the same.

Common myth #2

If you are pregnant with a boy, you will tend to crave for more salty/meaty items. If you are pregnant with a girl, you will crave for sweet desserts.

FALSE.

I do have cravings but they are quite minimal compared to the other mamas I know. Both pregnancies I crave mainly more for sweet items. Awfully chocolate ice-cream remains a consistent craving.

Common myth #3

If you are pregnant with a girl, you will tend to get morning sickness.

TRUE.

I hardly had any morning sickness with Aidan but with Davina, I had it very very very bad.

Common myth #4

If you are pregnant with a boy, your tummy will be sharp. If you are pregnant with a girl, it will be round.

TRUE.

In early stages, both times, the tummy looked the same. But as I hit my third trimester, it was really significant on how the difference in shape! Aidan was super sharp! While Davina is round like an egg!

Common myth #5

If you get migraines/headaches, you are likely to be carrying a boy.

TRUE.

While I did not have much morning sickness when I was pregnant with Aidan, I had very severe migraines. With Davina, I didn't get any migraines but I had severe morning sickness.

These are just 5 of the myths that I will be sharing! Also, just to share some other updates about my pregnancy.

  1. I suffered from cervical polyps with Aidan.
    • I had 3 huge ones during my pregnancy. Gynae said, it's due to too much estrogen. Was bleeding throughout my second and third trimester.
  2. Davina was breech for a period of time.
    • She was breech for a good 6 weeks at least while Aidan had no such issues.
  3. Both times, I kena preterm contractions.
  4. Both times, I am diagnosed with low placenta.
    • With Davina, my placenta is even lower than with Aidan..
  5. With Aidan, I had a huge blood clot.
    • Until now, I still do not know if it was the bloody show. It looked like it though!
  6. Both times, I kena gestational diabetes.

And now... we count down to Davina's arrival. Here's praying for a safe delivery! Fingers crossed!

Ashley Low Photography should be no stranger to many of you. I worked with Ashley for my previous maternity shoot for #1 and various other sessions before in the last two years! Here's a recap:

Just like with Aidan, I wanted to capture photos of my beautiful bump when pregnant with Davina (aka #2) but I wanted something different as compared with Aidan!

Ashley and I discussed about a few different scenarios and concept and we decided to go for an outdoor photoshoot this time as we did an indoor shoot when I was pregnant with Aidan.

I showed some pictures from Pinterest as reference to Ashley and we both concluded that I preferred florals and a more girly look for this shoot. While Ashley offered a great variety of outfits to choose from, I wanted to search for different styles of clothings for the shoot. Showed them to Ashley and we shortlisted three outfits and decided on going to Botanical Gardens for our shoot!

I also mentioned to Ashley that while this was  a maternity shoot, I would prefer if we can skew it to more of a family shoot. I wanted both Aidan and Skai to be the main stars of the shoot too.

Here's the end results! I love the pics! Ashley really charmed Aidan too because he was so cooperative and so happy during the shoot.

Pregnancy the second time, makes me feel even more tired than the first time. Maybe the fact that I'm older plus having to chase Aidan is the reason why. HAHHAA. Sorry for the tardy updates, here's Aidan's milestones from 20 - 22 months old!

  • Aidan started childcare at 20 months old as there was a childcare slot FINALLY. Initially, Skai and I had plans to only send Aidan to childcare at 2 years old but since a slot finally opened in Punggol, we leapt at it!
  • He loves school and hardly cried. He loves socialising with his friends and have lots of fun. I think childcare is fun for him and we think that it's good that he socialises.
  • Unfortunately, he also fell sick pretty often in childcare. Cough, cold etc. He was even hospitalised for a bit.
  • I started dabbling into essential oils to help both Aidan and myself. Since I'm pregnant, I can't take much medicine. Also, I didn't want Aidan to take too much medicines too.
  • I still latch but I have stopped pumping. Latching was a bit difficult at this stage as I suffered from nursing aversion. More on this, soon!

  • With childcare, Aidan tend to sleep a bit earlier. While he is still energetic, he gets tired easily now.
  • He has started to be a bit more vocal these days. Saying more, milk, papa, mama, meimei, Aaaaa (as in referring to himself), sit in mandarin etc
  • He is still so manja which I love. He kisses our face all the time. LOVE IT. He is so cute when he does that! Though recently he started¬†giving wet sloppy kisses hahhaha
  • He is still very very sociable.
  • Unfortunately after his bout at the hospital, he has been introduced to the land of YouTube. ADDICTION MAXIMUS.

Can't wait to see how he reacts when Davina is here ūüėÄ
