What to expect when you’re expecting!

I’m no expert as this is my first child

Trust me the feeling is great

When I found out about it, I smiled

It really is awesome fate!

The nausea creeping in everyday

And the weird feeling behind the throat

It’s a promise they made to never go away

‘Oh what a nuisance’, I quote.

The hunger pangs I have are crazy

It’s like the baby is really very hungry

I’ve gotten, oh so, insanely lazy

I could live in a twenty-four supply food country.

With all of this come the numerous mood swings

Irritated one minute and all smiles the next

Confusion hangs on many strings

I only think, ‘oh what’s gonna come next?’

Ask anyone how has their pregnancy been

They praise it as greatly as can be

They give you such a painted scene

Beauty brag is all you can see.

The truth is always withheld by them

They do not give you the actual story

A little heads up wouldn’t condemn

Their so called high held glory.

I agree that it’s a wonderful feeling

To see your baby on the screen every month

At times I think I’m only dreaming

But the joy is a reality pinch all at once.

Expect it to be a roller coaster ride

Nine months are a mixture of emotions

Good bad and ugly, all by your side

It’s a happy dive for forty weeks into the ocean.
