    They are busy in the bedroom. But, it’s nice to have them out of the way. Then you can simply focus on raising them and doing your own thing.

    Chica wants to churn all them babies one time and focus solely on her career. Plus, u want make her 2 years US visa expire? At least get 2 pikin out of it before renewal lol, if they renew it. But isn’t that risky when it comes to health?

    • Tee

      August 25, 2015 at 4:56 pm

      Health wise it’s fine, it’s from the fifth pregnancy onwards where the risks increase. Having babies closer together means your body still remembers what it’s doing, and the labour is usually quicker. The after pains get worse the more you have though

    • gurl_wendy

      August 25, 2015 at 5:42 pm

      Having babies close together is not fine healthwise, especially when it’s too close, before the body has recovered from the onslaught of pregnancy having another baby can lead to complications like anemia in pregnancy and malnutrition of the previous baby who gets neglected because his mother stops breastfeeding.

      August 25, 2015 at 5:55 pm

      Haba @Rif Raf, that is not a nice comment. Not everyone is a charity case you know. If you show evidence that you paid your bills there should be no problem.

    • Tee

      August 25, 2015 at 7:37 pm

      @gurl_wendy my comment was specific to this situation. Yes, there are risks complications conceiving 6 months or less after delivery. Those risks are small birth, preterm delivery, and scar rupture if you had a c-section. That neglect theory is way off, and anaemia is common regardless

    August 25, 2015 at 1:31 pm

    That’s fast! Congrats to her all the same although pregnancy and childbirth are not easy at all especially when you do not allow your body to rest in between pregnancies. And before anyone goes for my neck, let me say I know dt first hand as I’m currently pregnant with my third (the result of failed withdrawal method) while still caring for my second baby. I pray for strength everyday. It’s not easy.

    • Beeeee

      August 25, 2015 at 1:49 pm

      Failed withdrawal method ??????…. I feel your pain

    • Sugar

      August 25, 2015 at 3:26 pm

      Do people still use withdrawal method as a a birth control method? This last time i heard about withdrawal method was reading it in books. I didnt know people still practice such.

    • Peaches77

      August 26, 2015 at 4:19 pm

      Withdrawal Method remains one of the most effective, but for the experts o

    • M&

      August 25, 2015 at 3:41 pm

      Lol @ Withdrawal method o! As for me, Oga pursued me kia kia, immediately after no.2 (who came a year after no.1), my 6 weeks postnatal was solely for FP things! He doesn’t want to hear story o! Congrats to Mercy….do it all while you can!

    August 25, 2015 at 1:48 pm

    Congrats!!! But please take it easy. If woman never born atleast 5 pikin give Ishan men,come loose shape join, the men body no go come down. It’s easier to shed baby fat when there’s spacing. All the best. Maintain yourself.Cos Ishan men are not it in the long run. Na their fellow Ishan women fit them


      August 25, 2015 at 2:19 pm

      Waiting for Oshiomole’s wife Lara to get preggo. That’s when i will really believe.

    • Ocean Beauty

      August 25, 2015 at 2:42 pm

      Bebe, seems you are from Edo state. Unfortunately, most ishan ladies wont touch their men even with a 100m pole

    • Thelma

      August 25, 2015 at 4:33 pm

      Cos we sabi dem well well. Their middle name na Control,tax collectors(if their wife hold well),peacocks etc. abeggi, 90% of Ishan men no be beta husband material

    3, 2, 1… race??

    Congratulations, thank God and we pray for safe delivery!


    August 25, 2015 at 1:58 pm

    I agree with you @Mom of 2, it is usually advisable, but i am guessing she wants to get it out the way. By the time she is done, facing her career will be the only thing, cause we havent seen you on the tube in ions and appearing in only ‘Thy Will be done’ isnt enough oh!

    August 25, 2015 at 1:58 pm

    I remember what my nurse said in my antenatal class when i was pregnant for my first.Till today the picture haunts me. She said a body of a woman after a child is like someone who has an injury and then when you don’t give yourself time to heal and take in again,its like pouring salt on the wound… Ewww,since then my middle name became family planning. Just my two cents. From a mom to another….jiri kwa nwayo.

    Was thinking the same, follow up pregnancies but it’s her choice, @ mum if 2 God wl strengthen you.

    Okay…My Uncle’s philosophy:

    1st child: congrats, gifts, attend naming ceremony.

    2nd child: send driver to drop off gift and call to congratulate.

    3rd child: congratulate you whenever he sees you.

    4th child: He won’t even acknowledge that he heard.

    5th child: he might actually have to stop being friends with you ???

    He always told me given unstable economic climes and changing values/divorce rates noone should ideally have more than 2kids. Less people to be accountable for if things go bad….which makes sense sha.
    By the way, he’s in his 60s, and has had this philosophy all his adult life! I just love that man?

    Firstly, what happens in her bedroom/family is none of you all’s business at all. Her body, vagina, uterus and money; not yours! She’s not asking you to help her carry the pregnancy nor is she asking for financial assistance. Some of you throwing darts, your mum didn’t space o. @Riff Raff what makes you think she only got 2 years US visa, abi you were the consulate that handled her application? People sef. If you cannot say a simply congrats and wish her a safe delivery, then shush!

    If only you knew the amount of people wishing they can conceive for just a day!

    And btw, my mum still looks exceptionally fabulous at 69 (she looks at least 10 years younger)! And she had me and brother spaced at 1yr 6months. Before you go on to health matter, she retired as a chief matron/midwife; so thank you but she was well informed! I’ve seen people of 10-12month spacing and children and mama during good.

    On cheating levels because your body is “out of shape,” please kindly be informed that a man that will cheat on you, will definitely do, even if you have the most amazing body on earth!

    Rant over, damn some comments be making me write an essay, pheww!

    • Anon

      August 25, 2015 at 5:54 pm

      Err the Us ‘consular’ can only give Nigerians a maximum of 2 years visa k? Its a fact so stop crying. Agree with everything else.

    Awww,congratulations to her,i wish her well. Children are gifts from God. And to be sincere it aint really getting pregnant(if you sure know what it is to be TTC) so if she does easily, then its God’s mercies on her. Am happy for her though.
