Pregnancy Myths Decoded

Dress c/o Mayarya

I can’t believe I’m already 34 weeks pregnant! It feels like yesterday when I was in my first trimester, nervous about everything. Since then, I’ve learned to relax and enjoy my pregnancy. Now that I am in my last weeks, I’m reflecting on all that I’ve learned during these last 8 months. It’s amazing how much your body goes through and how you learn to trust and listen to your body (and growing baby!). It’s both mentally and physically exhausting, but truly a beautiful time. As I get closer to 40 weeks, I can feel the Baby’s movements more vividly every day. I wonder what it’s going to going to be like after pregnancy and that sets off a whole new feeling of nervousness! For now, I am trying to stay healthy and active as I finish the home stretch. Through out my pregnancy, I’ve received a lot of questions from what I am craving to where to find fashionable maternity wear. I’m sharing the realities of pregnancy in my Pregnancy Myths Decoded today!

My Maternity Fitness Routine

Top, Sports Bra, Leggings  c/o – BASE Athletica (promo code below!)

Since sharing my pregnancy news, so many of you have asked me to share my maternity fitness routine! On Instastories, I often share my fitness photos and I always get asked about what I actually do. For me, fitness has been a constant in my life for the past 16 years since my freshman year in college (wow that’s so long ago!). One thing that has really surprised me is how many misconceptions there are about working out during pregnancy. Many people have even written to me saying to take it easy and that I shouldn’t be working out at all. I always strive to put my baby’s health first and discuss my fitness routine with my OB during each visit. So far, I’ve been cleared to workout as much as my body feels comfortable. My OB always tells me to listen to my body first and foremost. Now that I am in my 7.5 month, I workout 1-2 times a week since I get pretty tired from my day job and my hands and feet are so swollen! I am excited to share my pregnancy fitness routine with you trimester by trimester. Always remember, each person’s pregnancy and fitness journey is unique – do what feels best for you. And always consult your doctor before trying any exercise – especially if you are expecting.  Thank you BASE Athletica for sending me this outfit (non maternity sized up!). Enter code ‘FITSOCIAL’ at checkout to get 20% off all ONZIE and DHARMA BUMS brands until 23 July. Would love to hear about your maternity fitness tips in the comments section below!

Stylish Maternity Wear In Singapore!

Dress c/o // Jump Eat Cry //

When I found out I was expecting, fashion was the last thing on my mind. Soon (within 2 months!), my clothes started becoming tight and I had to look into maternity wear. After a few days of searching, I found that most maternity wear was very expensive and matronly. So many of my friends told me that they only wore their maternity dresses a few times and they were not worth the investment. At first, I tried to wear bigger sizes in regular clothing but my bump out grew those too! Thankfully, I found Jump Eat Cry maternity wear. What stood out about their collection was not only the stylish designs, but also that each piece can be worn pre, during, and after pregnancy! Check out more about my experience with Jump Eat Cry below!

Planning a Babymoon in Paris and a day at the The Palace of Versailles

Location // Château de Versailles // Dress Asos similar // Shoes Toms

Our babymoon in Paris was a dream. It was so nice to relax and enjoy the Parisian lifestyle for 10-days. Also, celebrating my 34th birthday and Mother’s day (Both on May 14th!) during the trip made for beautiful memories. Of all the trips I have taken, this holiday was the most chill and go-with-the-flow. I have my little peanut to thank for that. Given this was my fourth trip to Paris (2nd and 3rd here) Paris, I had already seen most of the major sites from the Eiffel Tower to the Basilica of Sacre-Coeur. This babymoon was about spending time with my husband, embracing the Parisian lifestyle, and being in the moment.  I am so thankful I didn’t go overboard with planning or taking pictures! There is definitely something about Paris that helps you appreciate natural beauty and the simple things in life. Sharing a recap of our babymoon in Paris today, how to plan a babymoon in Paris, and a day at The Palace of Versailles!
