Who said being pregnant was easy?
Who said being pregnant was bliss?
I’ll wager my life that it was a man
Because they’ve never gone through this!
They’d never put up with the nausea
Or waking each morning to see
If they can stop being sick long enough
To face some dry toast, and tea
As for them coping with heartburn,
Wouldn’t they find that a thrill
They’d abhor the chalky white liquid
That cures it but makes you feel ill
And what about not being able
To fit into old comfy jeans
I’m telling you now, this pregnancy lark
Is definitely not all it seems
My ankles are thick
My rings are all tight
I’m lacking in sleep
From the kicking at night!
So, whoever said ‘pregnancy’s easy’
I’d like to have certified
And I wish that I could just meet them
To say to their face ‘YOU LIED!’
