Ever heard of cryptic pregnancy? According to media.net, it is the phenomenon whereby women do not become consciously aware of their pregnancy until the last weeks of gestation.
Viola Daisy, like any mother, got excited when she finally delivered her son Jayden back in 2018.
She pictured an enjoyable, tasking but still rewarding journey for the next few months or years before she could consider thinking of baby number two.
But, after her C-section came a series of problems that required the then 22-year-old to undergo another surgery.
Weeks after her procedure, Viola started experiencing sharp pains whenever she would get her monthly periods.
But she shrugged them off as crumps that would perhaps go away when the time to bleed elapsed.
But on this one occasion, her periods became prolonged and the pain was just too unbearable.
“I bled and did not go to the hospital but I remember being in a lot of pain and growing thin during that time,” she told Nation Africa.
Viola continued going to work despite her discomfort and her neighbour and workmates started noticing that her body was slowly withering.
“My neighbour told me to go to hospital because it was dangerous to bleed for a week,” she narrated.
The mother of two who finally visited the doctor after six months of on and off bleeding was shocked when the medic informed her she was pregnant.
In her mind, it had to be impossible. The mum’s tummy was flat and she had never felt a kick or turn in her belly.
She finally delivered her child later and now he is a big boy who serves as Viola’s reason to appreciate the beauty of second chances.
