My stomach started bulging.
I sent pictures of us to my family. My sister-in-law posted on her WhatsApp status. About two or more people told her my face looked pregnant. She told me and I said my usual, Amen. After all, someone that’s been declaring herself pregnant since August should truly look pregnant by December 😂😂
I focused on my vacation, determined to thoroughly enjoy myself. One morning we all hit the gym and I led a dance exercise. Worried about my bulging tummy, I used a vintage vibrating exercise belt on my belly. Click the word to see how it works. It vibrated so intensely that my belly “caught fire” I begged to stop. Vacation was over we went home.
At this point, it was barely 3 days to 2021. I had an assignment to submit at school. I started writing it but noticed it was a struggle. It felt as though something foreign had hit my brain. I was also hosting a 12-hour prayer-thon. I managed to pull through these. Then we went for cross over service and I literally broke down.
When we got back home in the new year (January 2021), I decided to get some rest. I rested and felt better. I tried to resume my activities as usual only to notice I was still struggling. I started paying attention to my body for familiar pregnancy signs and I caught one.
My body has been behaving pregnant so this one wasn’t going to excite me. I wasn’t even going to do a home test as I have had 7 negative tests already. I went for a blood test and got a positive. I felt fear and excitement but I chose to believe the Lord that this will be it.
The positive result
We told our father in the Lord, Daddy Hezekiah. He prayed for us and referred us to a gynaecologist.
We went to see the doctor and he ordered a scan. Behold I was 6 weeks + 3 days gone. How that excercising belt did not uproot this pregnancy is a wonder.
My husband and I weren’t interested in measurements or dating. We had one question, “Is there a heart beat?”
My heart pounded as the sonographer took a closer look. You can imagine the relief we felt when he said there was a heartbeat.
We lost the others at their 6th week, so hearing that this was viable was a miracle to us. For the first time in my life, ultrasound gave me good news.
We asked him to check for fibroids, he said that the coast was clear. My husband and I smiled in relief. This could only be God!!
To avoid stories that touch, the gynaecologist placed me on an injection for 5 weeks after which he installed a cervical cerclage (Shirodkar).
God preserved this one!
Days turned to weeks, weeks to months and finally on the 17th of August, 2021, My countless testimonies in one made her debut entry into the world.
Men and brethren, I present to you, the proof of God’s kindness to me!!!
I have a long list of people to thank. I literally had a whole continent of people praying for me. Many I didn’t know and much more that I knew prayed for me.
May God thoroughly furnish everyone who stood by us through these times, with the best dimensions of himself. Yes, I believe the gift of himself is the greatest gift ever.
As many that gave us gifts in cash and items, thank you immensely. May the angel of this baby speak to the father to help you where it matters most; just as the angel of that baby spoke to God concerning my husband.
