I have been schooled on how you feel
The thoughts you conceal
Not even fertility pills, herbs or massages could seal the deal.
The supposition of when your prospective child will come is no fear compared to the certainty that your mother-in-law will tag you a witch.
The predictable family meetings, Fasting and prayers
Quarrels, Regular tests, Isolation, Social stigma
Grief, Frustration, Rapid depression
You call into question “your abilities”
Will I ever have children let alone a child to call my own?
Will my husband give into the thought of taking another wife? Or better still go for the “born pikin out side, find out when I die” option?
I feel so less of a woman!
It’s okay to feel the anxiety
You’ll have children and they would be grown in a blink of the eye and you’ll remember more good time than bad and the bad you do remember will be so much funnier , but I must warn: do not give into taking organised concoctions prepared my any baba/mama lawo!! And resist visiting the ” die by fire’s, it’s your uncle that is doing you”..not all are true!
