Linda Ejiofor-Suleiman, a Nollywood star, has resorted to social media to share her pregnancy experiences as her kid turns one today.

Linda Ejiofor, who shared lovely photographs of her kid, said she and her husband Suleman couldn’t control their joy when they found out she was pregnant.

According to the actress, she took her normal anti-natal medication before giving birth. She came home, however, with excruciating pains that kept her weeping all night and unable to sleep until she went to the hospital in the morning.

She wrote: I remember the day we found out that we were pregnant. It was the best day of my life. I remember telling your father and how he jumped up and hugged me, he can tell you his own side of the story. Then the process began. Ohhh the unforgettable process. We were happy that we had you. I remember the day before you were born, went for my antinatal as usual, coming back home, It was a bumpy ride.

I was very uncomfortable throughout that day, just felt this pain in my pelvic area. I thought it was something that would eventually pass as usual( Braxton Hicks). But, wow. It lasted the whole night, and at 4am of the 9th i started crying. Not because of the pain but because I hadn’t slept, and I was so tired. All I wanted to do was just sleep. Even candy crush couldn’t keep me distracted.

I tried helping your dad cut his hair because he had an impromptu shoot that morning, which was supposed to be his day off. It was, by the grace of God that I didn’t give him gorimakpa. Anyway, I kept cringing and holding my breath and standing still and squeezing my hands or his. Whenever I felt the pain. At 7am Ibro sent a message to the doctor and told what had been going on, and that my pain is 7 over 10. And for me seven over 10 is like, 12, over 10 for other people (yep high threshold for pain).

So doctor (God bless you Prof!) told me to come to the hospital immediately. I got to the hospital, and they started monitoring my contractions and everything .I thought, you know, it was going to be my usual checkup, seeing as the day before i was told you hadn’t descended yet, so i had like a week to go.

Little did i know i was in labour through out that night. As soon as the Dr touched my tummy and carried out a detailed examination, she told me the baby was coming today. Everything after that went so fast, I was in shock, I didn’t have my hospital bag with me nothing. Luckily for me I went with my sister thank God.
