  • You can get your ex back and cure your infertility problems with Dr. Odunga. 

      When I met Dr. Odunga, my husband had divorced me because I was a barren woman of 41 and I have been married for 21 years. I was devastated and confused as a woman of my age until when I went online to look for help on how to get my marriage back then I met Dr. Odunga. Within 48 hours of contacting him, my ex husband came back home and pleaded for me to forgive him and take him back after 5 months of divorce. I accepted him back and then I told Dr. Odunga of my bareness for him to help me. He did the spell for fertility and after 48 hours of completing it, I conceived. My husband got me pregnant and I gave birth to a baby girl. How time flies when you are so happy!

           Presently, I am a mother of a beautiful baby girl and I am happy in my relationship. This is all thanks to Dr. Odunga and his wonderful work. Contact Dr. Odunga Via Whats App number +2348167159012. Email at:  [email protected]

  • When u say “week” does it mean LMP? Or are u really that far along without the 2 weeks being added because I have irregular cycles so LMP doesn’t work for me kinda confusing now. Hope someone answers

  • I feel like the god bothering in the comment section needs a counter balance so here it is.
    god has nothing to do with your pregnancy or child, it’s nature doing it’s thing like it has done for millions of years (not for humans, just nature)
    Prayers do nothing and don’t change the outcome of anything.
    Miscarriages happen, to everyone, it’s not your fault if it does happen and no amount of prayers or wishes change that fact.
    It’s 50% genetics 20% luck and 30% how well you look after yourself and your baby.

  • prenatal vitamins are such a scam, just eat more fruits and veggies (if you’re throwing up anyway, you won’t be able to keep a pill down) and make sure you’re getting enough folate (folic acid) through foods.
    You’re gonna have to have more protein and calcium too.
    Healthy foods are the way forward.

  • So, mums seem you are pregnant now! For more confirmation and explanation your viability please check this link now!

  • If your thinking of aborting your baby please don’t. God has placed that child in your life for a reason and that child could save millions of people and could be the blessing of your live and you will thank Jesus every day.

  • I enjoyed this video. I found it to be educational and helpful due to me carrying my first child. ALOT of people seem more offended at the fact the narrator referenced the baby as a “she” ���� instead of enjoying the fucken video.

  • It is He who created you from dust, then from a sperm-drop, then from a clinging clot; then He brings you out as a child; then [He develops you] that you reach your [time of] maturity, then [further] that you become elders. And among you is he who is taken in death before [that], so that you reach a specified term; and perhaps you will use reason.
    ہُوَ الَّذِیۡ خَلَقَکُمۡ مِّنۡ تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ مِنۡ نُّطۡفَۃٍ ثُمَّ مِنۡ عَلَقَۃٍ ثُمَّ یُخۡرِجُکُمۡ طِفۡلًا ثُمَّ لِتَبۡلُغُوۡۤا اَشُدَّکُمۡ ثُمَّ لِتَکُوۡنُوۡا شُیُوۡخًا ۚ وَ مِنۡکُمۡ مَّنۡ یُّتَوَفّٰی مِنۡ قَبۡلُ وَ لِتَبۡلُغُوۡۤا اَجَلًا مُّسَمًّی وَّ لَعَلَّکُمۡ تَعۡقِلُوۡنَ ﴿۶۷﴾
