  • My family people, lactation isn’t easy abeg. I’m still not able to produce 5mls of milk per day. My only saving grace is that mini-me hasn’t commenced feeding yet. She’s been crying non-stop for food but her Drs say it’s not yet time. I can stand her tears. Yesterday evening, I broke down n cried hard when I saw another expressing about 50mls of…[Read more]

  • @pearl, a co-patient just had a 1.55kg baby at 32weeks. The baby is strong and doing well but I don’t think I want that. My baby must stay o! I worked with preterms for just one month and I couldn’t handle it. I cried for the babies and their parents. Had nightmares sef. I keep telling my body to nurture this baby everyday.

  • My dear, I’m to stay in the hospital till delivery. God is working wonders. The Drs and I are keeping this baby in utero for as long as possible. We celebrate everyday that passes like we won a trophy. Lolzzz… Everybody is positive (especially the medical team).

    N.B: I’m 28weeks by the way.

  • Hello peeps! Thanks for all your prayers and concern. I’m still in the hospital. Had a long discussion with my Drs and was told to consider preterm delivery as a possibility. ┬áPls can I get articles on preparing n taking care of a preterm? Feel free to share your experience with a preterm.

  • Thanks for your prayers and concerns. I truly appreciate. I’m back in the hospital. BP is borderline but I have been placed on an antihypertensive. I couldn’t sleep last night cos I was worried. I’m still in the 2nd trimester, for God’ sake. We go through a lot to get pregnant and then still fight to have the baby.

    N.B: I just avoided Google this…[Read more]

  • I finally got a mid-term break! Hahaha.. I was allow to spend 2 weeks out of the hospital but on complete bed rest. However, I’m a little bothered. I’ve started vomiting again. Having slight headaches. Even my BP. I may return back to the hospital today or tomorrow.

    Please, God see me thru to the end.

  • @Pearl, I need all the strength and prayers I can get now. Every day, there’s a new challenge. Its scary sometimes. I just keep reminding myself of God’s promises to me.

    @oluwakemine, I’m in a different town. A different state, infact. I know nobody here. I’ve tried all the various ‘mama-put’ around the hospital to no avail. There is a new…[Read more]

    Babe, the 1st 12weeks, I ate nothing but indomie and half boiled eggs. A pack a day was my target. I lost 5kg in my 1st trimester o! For 5days I was on infusion (drip) only cos I was always vomiting non-stop. By the time I started eating, I stooled non-stop. Hahaha… My parents were scared. My mum prayed non-stop. I only started eating well at…[Read more]

    5 weeks remaining so no fret! 1year paid maternity leave?! Wow!!! In Nigeria?! That’s good. Y disturb yourself with work when you can rest? U’ve already said the stress is responsible for your weight. Anyways, you are supposed to gain at least 10-12kg in pregnancy. I think you should check the weight ish with your doctor.

    • no we live in canada thats why i will get 1 yr paid maternity leave. yeas the dr is not so happy with my weight gain but i reallly dont have any more tricks to play at this point. i could have stuffed myself full of carbs but my carb intake is also regulated due to my sugar being high. it really is a no win situation. but on the bright side my…[Read more]

    • @temotighoken please don’t feel offended. You have most surely been on all our minds. I had some intermittent fluid draining during my own time, but it was nothing serious. I honestly didn’t think you’d been on admission all this while.

      But it is also unfair to accuse us of not showing concern. You’ve been a part of our family even before your…[Read more]

      • Ruby @temotighoken, please accept my apologies for this. Biko, don’ t be offended. But like Nicole has already said, it doesn’t mean, you were not on our minds. It’s just the reality here that some people just go off and don’t want to share, but it doesn’t mean, we don’t care, infact, we care too much sef but we wouldn’t want to be spamming them…[Read more]

        • i’m so sorry Ruby @temotighoken, i did not even read the initial post because i have not been so active on here. you are in my thoughts and prayers! trust God for the best.
