But soon our love, our life, our all.

Your cheeks have got a glow.
Your belly’s being touched and rubbed
by people you don’t know.
You’re craving weird, exotic foods
and calories don’t matter.
You can’t remember life without
an elbow in your bladder.
You’re getting medical advice
from everyone you see
Welcome to the joyous days
- These nine months may not always be bliss
But they are the ones you would not want to miss
So when your feet hurt and your tummy feels amiss
Fan away and think of baby’s first big sweet slobbery kiss
