Seems like it's a common worry among us that the company may either terminate us or we may not be eligible for 16 weeks maternity leave required by our government.
So I did a bit of research and decided to share this here. (also serve as a note to self for future reference *grinz*)

The Miscarriage: Going Green

These days, whenever i see babies or friends or even strangers with their babies, i grow Green...Green with ENVY...

There're so many babies and mothers around recently, be it out in public or even on facebook, seeing people post cute daily lives photos of their little ones...
Sometimes I'd wonder, why is it that they can have such a smooth pregnancy even though some of them were unwanted pregnancy (looking at the shot gun marriages on the rise recently).
I'm turning into a green monster..............=(
Anyway the good news is, my AF (aka Auntie Florence) is finally here! and that's 8 weeks after my D&C procedure, that means we can start trying to for a baby again after AF is gone..I hope fertility gets back…
