Pregnancy Haikus

I’m officially 30 weeks along! To celebrate, I thought I’d share some of my pregnancy-inspired haikus.

 

(Road trips with a full bladder)

Joe, I’m so sorry,

but I need a pee break now!

ACHOO!...nevermind…

 

(Advice from strangers)

Well thank you so much

for your opinion on that.

What’s your name again?

 

(Achieving a balanced diet)

I’ll eat a salad.

Then maybe some grilled chicken,

and a huge milkshake.

 

(Being pregnant in Columbia in the summer)

Oh geez. I can’t breathe!

Yep, it’s so hot I’m certain

the baby’s sweating.

 

(Getting off the couch)

I have stuff to do,

better get up and...ugh...no…

I’ll just stay right here.

 

(Going to bed)

I know it’s early;

the sun’s still up, but I've been

tired since lunchtime.

 

(Exercising)

Before: this might suck.

After: I’m glad I did that!

After-er: FEED ME!

 

(Pregnancy dreams)

Last night I dreamt that

turtles were stealing my car

and shouting, “YOLO!”

 

(Preparing the nursery)

Joe, the paint looks great!

Will you start to decorate?

I’ll just take a nap.

 

(Putting on shoes)

Maybe if I just

bend my knee, then...FORGET IT!

I’m going barefoot.

 

(Our general concensus)

We get a baby!

All ours, a sweet baby girl.

Come on, October!
