Baby Scan: Week 10 – Dr Benjamin Tham at Thomson Medical Centre

After our last meetup with our previous gynae, Dr Wee, we decided to look around and see if there are other gynaes we could probably go with. We wanted to find someone we were 100% comfortable with.

Dr Wee Horng Yen or Dr Benjamin Tham? I recovered enough from my shock of being pregnant to google for recommended gynae / gynecologists in Singapore. Preferably in the Novena area.

A New Stage

I remember that day when I took the pregnancy test kit at home and it came back positive. I am pregnant. I was really kinda dreading it. I missed my period, peeing a lot and had slight nausea.
