As I look into the mirror I think – whose body is this? It can’t be mine,
Dark marks galore and a deep coffee coloured line,
That runs all the way down my belly though it isn’t very straight,
Fresh burgundy stretch marks and back pain from carrying this extra weight.
I haven’t seen my feet in weeks, I’m not kidding, I swear,
Can’t reach my calves either; they’re probably covered with hair?
Ok it sounds like I’m complaining, but I’m actually having the best time of my life, 😀
To be a mum is what I’ve always wanted (much more than to be a wife!)
This little innocent life is growing and thriving inside me, it’s a feeling I can’t explain,
So while I’m definitely DREADING labour, for my baby I’ll take any pain.
When that time comes, I’ll be focusing on you baby, we’re in this together,
It’s team me and you kid, forever and ever.
But for now, take your time and cook until perfection,
Till you’re ready to come join me and Daddy and strengthen our connection.
I can’t wait for that first cuddle, to squeeze your little hands and feet,
To look into your eyes and think wow, now I feel complete. ❤
