LUYANDA

I was in a blissful bubble today it's like I felt free...I'm glad me and Brian spoke and he understood my worries. I got to my class as usual and today I was just smiling like a retard and we were just joking around with my learner's one thing I had decided though was to commit fully on making this baby. I sent MaGabi a text informing her that I would be coming home for the weekend and besides I had to attend Cebi's baby shower though this was her third baby she was demanding a baby shower so we planned it for her though she knows we doing one for her she's not sure when and where. While I was paging through my phone I came across a text from my hubby informing me that Tshepo's girlfriend decided that she will see us today later. I went ahead with my day and just couldn't wait to see the gynae...

BRIAN

Today I was in court the whole day so I didn't have to go to the office but Pam was there to hold things down. I won the case that I was handling for child custody..my client was deprived the right to be a mother to her son because she was suffering from depression and the mother in law and husband decided to sue for full custody and depriving her visitation rights..it has been a messy and long battle but we fought both tooth and nail my client got treatment so we got joint custody and supervised visitation rights though it wasn't ideal but it was something. After court I decided to borrow Benny my car so he could drive it to my house then I was going to catch a ride with Luu as we were going to see Asanda the gynae.


AN HOUR LATER

Luu is driving through Asanda practice offices and we see see her car only maybe she didn't have client's today..we go through to find her assistant waiting for us ushering us inside her office

Asanda: hey Brian..so glad you could make it please take a seat..

Me: hey Asa thanks for seeing us at short notice..this is my beautiful wife Luu..ndoni yam this is Asanda

Luu: hi Asanda

Asanda: hi Luu it's nice to finally meet you. So guys talk to me how can I help you.

Me: me and wife here we want to start a family so we needed to check If everything is in place.

Asanda: congrats that's a huge step. Ok am just going to ask Luu a few questions please don't be shy to answer hey just want to see a few things yeah.. I'll be back now now


LUYANDA

I felt a bit nervous what kind of questions will she ask..Brian got hold of my hand and kissed it..Asanda walked in with a few papers then sat down

Asanda: ok..so Luu I want to know about your periods..how long is your cycle

Me: my periods are irregular..sometimes its 28 days sometimes it's less. I miss them sometimes

Asanda: ok so when you miss them it's usually for how long and when you have them how long do you go for..

Me: I can go up to three months without seeing my periods then when I finally do have them it's usually 5_7 days 

Asanda: are they heavy or painful.

Me: they very heavy..I change tampons every 3_4 hours and the pains they very painful but nothing ginger water and neurofen cannot help with.

Asanda: that's intense so you get the period pains for the first day or do you have them through out the period.

Me: the first two days are hectic but the last days it's painful but pain killers usually do the trick. Is there something wrong

Asanda: no dear just checking. Sometimes your body doesn't ovulate properly especially when you missing periods and having the painful heavy periods. Have you ever done a pap smear 

Me: no I've never done one.

Asanda: ok. So have you ever been pregnant or you just going to start now

Me: no I've never been pregnant

Asanda: are you on contraceptives

Me: no but I used to drink oralcons but I stopped drinking them 3 years back.

Asanda: so Mr chauke you guys use protection when you have sex

I saw Brian shift uncomfortably...I chuckled

Brian: yes but not all the time though

Asanda: ok. So what am going to do is just get a pap smear done on Luu then check for sugar diabetes and high blood. Then my dear you are going to have to start changing your diet here is a pamphlet of all the foods we need you to eat as well as you too Daddy. Then I suggest we stop using condoms all together can I test you guys for HIV while we added..

She checked my blood pressure which was very low then checked my sugar levels which she found out that I have type 1 diabetes and the HIV test came out negative for both of us and I had a pap smear done. She wrote me a refferal letter to the clinic to start treatment on diabetes seeing it was high and gave me folic acid supplements.
