Pregnant

by Em

I wake up and want to puke.
That's when I know I'm preggers.
Now, I'm going to be moody,
My husband and children, poor beggars.

I've missed my period,
Now, I know it must be true.
It's baby and us from now on.
Oh dear lord, I feel so blue.

I'm craving things like
Chocolate sauce on eggs.
And oh my goodness,
That pie from Gregg's.

My breasts their swollen,
And very sore.
I wish I hadn't missed the contraceptive,
That week, before.

I feeling so tired,
I don't want to get out of bed.
My husband wanted a night of passion,
How I wish I'd agreed to head.

The eggs smell like bananas
And the coffee tastes like stew.
Oh no not again,
I think I'm gonna spew.

I know I should test now,
What do you think?
I didn't want to get pregnant again;
I'm forty not twenty, my bodies on the blink.

The test it's positive;
I knew that it would be.
I better tell my husband soon,
Don't you agree?

The bumps getting bigger
And the time it's gone so fast.
My due date is approaching soon,
How long will I last?

"Pussssssh, pussssssh, pussssh!
I can see the head."
I don't know how I'm doing this,
But my legs are spread.

The pain is getting stronger now,
But I know it won't take long.
All I need is a bit of will power;
I know I'm being strong.

The babies here now, it's a girl.
The sonographer said it was a boy.
Now, I'm fuc ked because I got blue things.
It's your turn now daughter, oh what a joy.

Lol, this was just great.
i like the sarcasm and almost anger towards the end you used.
and the twist at the end, thinking it was a boy. creative and clever! lol
