    Thank God for the journey so far. He is merciful. I was at the hospital for antenatal on Thursday and my weight had dropped. I guess it’s a miracle. From 76kg to 72kg. I could not believe my eyes and I had to ask the nurses to check again. Alas, it’s the same thing. The doctor pinned it down to my diet which comprises more of fruits such as water Melon 🍉 , garden eggs, oranges 🍊n guavas.

    Another secret recipe my mum came up with was something my late grand mum who was a local midwife back in d days used to recommend to pregnant women. It’s garden egg leaf sauce. It is prepared without salt n Maggi. It’s used to remove excess fluid n prevent swellings. That’s mainly the soup I use now. I guess all that combined is helping with the weight.

    Doing fine and counting down. Everything according to the doctors is in tip top shape. Looking forward to my next antenatal

    @oluwakemi I bet it would work too. Maybe u should try it though it is tasteless. At first when I started on it I used to urinate too much but now it has reduced. That’s my cleanser. I try to stay away from junk. I have missed bread 🍞 all this months and ice cream now is a no no. My mum is on hand to make sure my diet is not tampered with. She feels it will be easier to get back in shape if I don’t have much to shed n hubby is agreeing.

    Next antenatal is on 24th n I bet I will add a little. PCV is @36%.  :yahoo:

    Great news @egobaby. Between your mom and your hubby, I don’t think, you will be adding anymore weight.

    You have to share the recipe of the sauce. It may help someone and me :bodyb:   :bodyb:
