Whilst we kept the pregnancy a secret for a little while, that didn’t stop me from rhyming about the experiences along the way. So, I hope you enjoy the first in a series of pregnancy related poems.
Today I confirmed what I already knew,
I peed on a stick and saw two lines of blue.
The first test I tried didn’t work,
And having to wait longer sent me berserk.
But a few hours later I took another test,
And the positive result was simply the best.
You’re there right inside of me,
Just like I knew you’d be.
I had the same feeling with your sister,
A weird sensation, a tummy-twister.
I’m not sure exactly how I knew
But from that very first second I loved you.
I wanted to plan something special to tell your daddy,
But I was too excited and it just spilled out of me.
When I told him he was super excited too
And he’s already started a list of names for you.
Right now you are the size of a poppy seed,
That’s a teeny tiny size indeed.
We simply can’t wait to see you grow,
And welcome you to the family in 8 months or so.
But it will be a while before we see your scans,
Or hear your heartbeat or make any plans.
So until then you’ll be our little secret,
And I’m quite happy to keep it quiet.
I want you to just be mine for a while,
The secret reason behind my smile.
Because even though you have lots of growing to do,
I already have so much love for you.
I don’t have many pregnancy symptoms yet,
But that ‘fun’ will all start soon I bet.
So for now I’m just going to enjoy,
The pure unfiltered baby joy!
