In her typical candid style, she also revealed her major pregnancy symptoms including major sleepiness, swollen nose and feet, food cravings, heartburn, skin discolouration and more. She says she looked “ugly” during her pregnancy…we disagree.
Sisi Yemmie also mentions pregnancy complications which thankfully did not progress, including a small fibroid and excess amniotic fluid.

In the end, she was induced and she describes the pain involved in that process. She continues and also gives insight into the giving birth in Nigeria experience including her painful contractions, her husband’s support (he slept on the floor and in the car while she was in the hospital), scary moments when she was rushed in for an emergency Caesarean Section (CS) and the joyful moment her son was born.
