Birth Control

On the 30th of September, I went for my 6 week review after my surgery. I was told I had healed nicely and everything was fine. My gynecologist discussed birth control options with me and this time, I decided to give it a shot. As I previously mentioned in an earlier blog post, I had […]

When it rains, it pours

From the moment, I got discharged, my 6 week count down to my healing begun. I had quite the journey ahead of me. I was told to take short walks several times in the day to help me heal faster. It was hard but I was prepared to do anything that would fast track the […]

Medical Emergency

“Eno, cases like these are medical emergencies. I’ll get them to bring the ambulance around and have you transferred to the specialist’s clinic. They’ll be able to do a thorough scan and determine exactly what to do next.” The doctor said as she patted my leg. I looked blankly at her as she walked out […]

Complications

In 2018, I decided to go back to school to pursue a Masters degree in Marketing. I knew it was going to be hard because I had just given birth to DJ but I was convinced I would be fine….until I got my acceptance letter the same day I got the results from the medical […]

Two under two

So what’s it like having two kids(boys) under two years you ask? HECTIC!!! As I’ve already mentioned in my previous posts, I got pregnant with my second son when my first was just 3 months old. So basically, throughout my second and third trimester I was juggling pregnancy and motherhood, which by the way, I […]

Adjusting

Giving birth close to Christmas is never easy. Two years in a row I had to sit at home nursing a baby while watching snaps of everyone else having the time of their lives during all the many many Christmas festivities. It was sad.

Circumcision

On the 11th of December, 2018 Kobby and I took Drew to the hospital to get circumcised. I wasn’t too worried this time because DJ’s had gone perfectly well last year. He barely cried when it happened and it was a very neat and sterile procedure which usually takes just about 10 minutes. His ring […]

Recovery Process

24th November couldn’t have come soon enough. I just couldn’t wait to be discharged. I was borrreedddd and exhausted from sitting up the entire night holding my baby. Thank God I didn’t drop him. That was risky.

Baby Drew is here!

Mary (the midwife) strapped me to the CTG machine to check the heartbeat of the baby. It was so loud but at least I was glad his heartbeat was normal.

Mom Guilt

Even before I got pregnant, I had heard mothers talk about this “mom guilt” but I didn’t seem to get it. I had heard them talk about feeling guilty when they had to go back to work after their maternity leave was over or feeling guilty anytime they had to leave their baby at home […]
