LITTLE THINGS COUNT pt2
Titilayo woke up one morning with a strong abdominal cramp, she got up, she remembered that her menstrual shed was going to commence today but she wondered why she was experiencing the pain. but because she was going for a meeting scheduled for that morning, she grabbed the remaining pain relief in her bag, she took it and prepared for work. Soon she forgot she had any pain earlier and she went about her daily activities.
Ten years passed, Titi and her husband remained unbothered about their childlessness but Titi’s mother in law will not allow them to rest. “Titi, I hope you are doing something about this your inability to get pregnant, if you don’t do something in the next six month I’m getting another woman for my son. I will not allow you to destroy this family”… she shouted on top of her voice and left angrily.
Adewale and Titilayo remained silent for minutes before Dewale finally broke the silence “Titi, you know I love you? I am not bothered about mama’s reaction but don’t you think we need to visit the gynecologist? for about five years now we’ve not been making love as we ought to”, I will book an appointment with the doctor this week, she cut in….
Early on that Monday morning, she went to their family hospital to see a gynecologist but she met a long queue and she couldn’t wait because she had a bunch of files to check and sign on her table in the office. she left in a hurry, she forgot about the appointment and she continued her work routine. “Titi, how long will you cherish your job than your marriage? we can’t continue like this, I hope you know?”. Honey, you know I’m working on getting my promotion, let it click and I will now have the time. pls try and understand hunnie.
Few weeks later, Titi got her letter of promotion she has been working hard for… honey, I have a good news for you!” you are pregnant? Demola asked. no now, I have been promoted ” it was obvious that she was happy that evening but her husband was not really excited…..
Titi, can we now book an appointment with your doctor now that you have been promoted ? she answered immediately. ” why not dear, we will go there, first thing tomorrow morning.
early the following morning they are already in the doctors office. they had conversation with the doctor and he asked them to go for series of test, scan and the likes. shortly the results were ready and they were back in the consulting room where Titi and Demola received the greatest shock of her life….
