Pregnancy diary - Four weeks

Pregnancy diary – Week 4

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.

Dear bump,

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!

When did you first know you were pregnant? Was it a surprise? I’d love to know your stories too so please share in the comments below. And, if there’s anything pregnancy related you’d like me to rhyme about please let me know.

  1. Love this rhyme – you really capture the excitement and also the anticipation of doing the test! I did a test with the eldest when my boobs were really sore – I had done loads in the past and we were desperate to have a baby so I will never forget telling my hubby while he was in bed on the Saturday morning. With the twins it was slightly different – we’d had IVF so I had been told what day to do the test…. I couldn’t sleep that night and had persuaded myself I wasn’t pregnant as had NO signs (no sore boobs!) I did it at 4am in the morning and it was a FAINT line that I was a bit in doubt…. I remember going into school and doing an early morning revision session for Y11s but not really being able to concentrate! Sorry for the ramble – your post has brought all the memories flooding back so thank you! xx #thesatsesh

    • Thank you. Aww I love hearing other people’s stories. Especially the differences with the twins. I’d always been lead to believe that twins had more signs. It just proves that I know nothing and every pregnancy really is different. X
