Adesua Etomi-Wellington, a famous Nigerian actress, has disclosed that she was pregnant with twins but miscarried.
This announcement was made by the delectable actress and wife of ace singer, Banky W, during a talk at The Waterbrook Studio while sharing their testimony of God’s grace in their lives.
She explained that when the doctors told her they couldn’t locate the children’s heartbeats, she laughed at first, then when she got home, she broke down and started to cry.
“When we found out we were pregnant with twins, we went to the scans and saw the heartbeats. At this time, only a few people are aware of when this occurred. Any story you’ve read is false and no one knows when it occurred. We could see the pulse and all was well. We went back to the hospital for a scan after a regular checkup, and I just saw the doctor’s face. You can see when something is wrong; sometimes you can tell. I asked the doctor, who was screening, what was wrong, but she said nothing.“I glanced at the nurse, and she, too, seemed a little strange. I asked as to what was wrong, and she replied, ‘Adesua, I am looking for the pulse.’ ‘For two of them?’ I inquired. And she agreed. I’m not going to pretend, I burst out laughing because it made no sense to me. I was like, ‘what do you mean you can’t find both of their heartbeats?’ She said, ‘Yes.’ I went home because Banky was not at home at the time, and I recall being in our living room. When I was in the ward, I was laughing and saying, ‘God knows.’
“When I got home, I actually slumped on the floor and wailed,” Adesua said. Wailing and weeping are not the same thing. Wailing is characterized by a heavy groan in your chest. It’s like a nut you can’t get rid of. I’m sharing this because so many people go through it, but nobody speaks about it for any reason, and I’m not sure why, but you don’t manipulate your body; you don’t make yourself.
“I’d like to thank every single woman who has been through IVF. I get what you’ve been through. I have veins in my hand that no longer function; they are so traumatized that blood cannot be drawn from them “It was very difficult; it was very hard. I was thinking about it when I was thinking about how every day I hear one rumour or another. Some said I was barren, others said my husband was impotent, and even others said I had done something to my womb. It was difficult, but I am doing this because I told God I will, and there is nothing anyone will do to make me stop talking about God’s goodness. It’s strange because we may agree that other organs may need assistance; you can get a heart transplant, you can get help with your kidneys, but when it comes to reproductive organs, it’s like a dirty subject that no one wants to discuss. I believe it is important that we talk about it.
