I Feared Hubby Would Leave Me For Not Conceiving For Over 5 Years, It Was Tough, Gospel Artist Says

Evelyn Wanjiru is a well known gospel artist who has graced our screens with her beautiful and encouraging songs. She opens up on one of the famous radio stations in Kenya about the challenges she went through in her period of not conceiving.

According to Evelyn, they became alarmed about them not conceiving when they were six years into marriage. This is because, for the first 5 years, they were busy building their record company. The became disturbed, and the husband suggested for them to seek medical intervention because her monthly menses were irregular.

Doctors confirmed that she had hormonal imbalance and had to be put under medication. This was the most trying moments of her life, she says. Time was flying, and her husband was soon turning forty without a child, she says.

She recalls one incident when they were in a supermarket in Kakamega where they bumped into her husband's classmate. The man went ahead to inform them that he was going shopping for his teenage child who was in high school. At that particular moment, he saw her husband's face, and she felt heartbroken. Those words had cut deep into him, she says. 

He later told her that if he had a child before like his classmate did, they would have been a teenager too by then. Clearly the husband yearned for a baby, and she felt like she had failed him all these years, she states. This shock Evelyn to the core, and she feared that her husband would leave her due to her condition. Instead, he was very supportive up to the last minute of her getting pregnant and delivering their baby. This was after 9 years of waiting, she says.

It was the happiest moments of their lives, since it was like an answered prayer. She therefore encourages any woman going through the same predicament to be patient and that God's time will come like hers did.
