Oluwatoyin Akinola Developmental Psychology Fictional Child paper (part 1) The birth of Aanuoluwa (meaning mercy of God) simply called Aanu is such an unforgettable experienced. She was the first born of the Adeola family and is the only child. She was the born on December 20 th 1963, in Lagos State, Nigeria. She was born into the family I can basically say a middle class, not poor and not rich. I was then a teacher in high school and my husband a professor in college. Before her birth we have waited for eight years trying to have a baby but was not working out. Probably this is hereditary, because my sister married for five years before she had a baby girl. Likewise my brother had to wait for seven years. And our mother said she waited for seven years before she eventually had the three of us. Neither of my husband nor me smoke or take alcohol, so I had a pap smear testing to see if there’s any cancerous cell in the cervix and ovulation test, a blood test to measure my hormone levels, to determine if I am ovulating or not. And my husband did a semen analysis, to measure how much semen he produces, the number and quality of the sperm which was all normal. The doctor suggested laparoscopy, a surgery at the abdominal organ to see if there’s any problem like cysts (sac filled with fluid or pus) and fibroid (growth in the uterus) which could all hinder pregnancy. I decided not to do it because it’s painful and has a higher chance of problem after test, like bleeding, infections, blood clot, inflammation of abdominal wall and even organs can be damaged. Due to the knowledge of those problems, I decided to go natural for trying for a baby.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
