As a woman who has come of age, it is one thing to be pregnant but it is another thing to carry it to full term. So, when Mrs Oni conceived at 49 years old, she didn’t tell her husband until he found out himself. And when he found out, they visited a hospital to be sure they had conceived.
Carrying a pregnancy at her age was a little difficult but they did everything they knew to protect it. Meanwhile, they weren’t sure the number of babies they had as different scans showed different numbers.
At 8 months, the couple had a selective CS, it was successful and they had their triplets.
23 years after marriage, the couple was blessed with their own children. “I never even knew that we would have any delay. I never knew, I didn’t bargain for such,” Mrs. Oni said, recalling the past.
