A pregnant lady in my office lost her pregnancy during the second trimester and I feel so bad about the incidence, but how do you console someone like that. Some persons were telling her it’s better to lose the pregnancy than a grown child but truly is the pain any less............ According to her, she had to go through labour and it wasn’t a funny experience at all. I offered my sympathies and told her my favourite bible quote is Eccl 3: 11 “He has made everything beautiful in its time”...... This verse has been my life line when all seems lost, when I feel all hope is lost and I am spiritually weary. She’s surviving and I feel very soon she will be pregnant again, that’s if she’s not already. Una know say some women body be magnet...they don’t waste time, before Hubby touches them, they haff catch belle, it is well. Even my mind is telling me that my sister-in-law will soon "catch" another belle....because, most people I know seem to go back for repeat course almost immediately after their first babies.
Another lady in my office just had twin boys, her pregnant tummy was extra large so I am not surprised, what left my mouth hanging open is that she’s already a mother to five children. This makes it seven children ........I doff my small “ikebe” for her. It takes a whole lot of courage and strength to born 1, not to talk of 7. There are people who love children and won’t mind having lots and lots of them but even me that haff not born yet can’t comprehend how she has been managing to stay sane and how she intends to stay sane with 7 children. She doesn’t look like someone with 2 children sef; she’s got a very trim body.
Someone shared a story of how his brother’s wife got pregnant after 5 children and then ended up with triplets meaning he has 8 children now; he said his brother went missing for three days upon hearing the good news. They had to report case of missing person to the police oh, when he came back on the third day he said he had to go into recluse and re-strategize because he couldn’t fathom where the triplets came from.......I thought people did scan and other tests to confirm these things.....so, lemme start warning Hubby not to think of running away in case God decides to “open the floodgates of heaven and pour out on us so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it”.....after all it will be worth the years of waiting.
The harmattan haff disappeared oh; it’s so hot in Lagos that I have forgotten that some weeks ago, we were complaining of dust and cold. People too plenty for Lagos sef, the traffic, horn hooting, swearing and cursing, car brushing and rowdiness is back on the road on a #doro-mega-superstar level..........
