KAMPALA - Nnalongo Ruth Esther Nalwoga, a resident of Nabweru, Wakiso district says after giving birth to two children, it took her seven years to conceive again.

However, her baby boy passed away four days after birth.

 “It felt like the whole world was crumbling down on me. I had waited for seven years and when I finally got him, he left me before I knew it,” she recollects.

Nalwonga says it was a trying moment because she did not only loss a baby but her job too.

 
Twins news

After six months, she conceived again. When the pregnancy was one and a half months, she started antenatal visits due to severe abdominal pain she often felt.    

During her antenatal visits, she did a scan test which dictated two embryos in one sack.

Nalwonga explains that she did not believe it because she or her husband had never thought of having twins.

“To ascertain the news, I did eight more scan tests from different places but still I did not believe until the pregnancy was five months,” she says.

She adds that she came to terms with the news and thanked God for granting her another chance to be a mother, more so of twins,” she explains.

Unfortunately, the doctor had told her that the babies were not in good condition and that she needed medical assistance for them to develop well.

“I was supposed to get an injection every day for four months,” she recalls.

 Nalwonga says the journey was not easy because her tammy was very big that she found it hard to do most of the things but her family was supportive.

“I had signed to undergo through C-Section because I had experienced a lot of pain during the previous pregnancy. At eight months, I gave birth to Babyire Ayannh Nakimuri weighing 2.5 kg and Nakato Adriella Nantenza weighing 2.7 kg,” she explains.

Nalwonga says her girls were put in an incubator and on oxygen for three nights and days before being discharged. But they continued going to the hospital for a check-up for three months.
