“Come in please,” the nurse called
Then she pointed to the bed,
“The monitor’s up there so
There’s no need to turn your head.
Could you please roll your top up
So your abdomen’s exposed.
I’ll just apply the gel, though
It may feel a little cold.”
I took a deep breath in, relaxed
Then looked up at the screen,
I quickly saw it flash
Then fade away like in a dream.
She returned back to the spot, said
“Can you see your baby there?”
I smiled, nodded my head,
Tears gave my eyes a watery glare.
“You’re thirteen weeks and five days,
Just a bit more than you thought.”
I couldn’t say a word cos in my
Throat my breath was caught.
“Relax,” she said, “one second as
A photo I will take,
So you can show your loved ones
As I’m sure you’ll celebrate.”
I walked out of the room
Holding the picture in my hand
Of the baby I was hoping for
But never really planned.
I put it away carefully
Placed my hand upon my tum.
This was my defining moment,
I am going to be a Mum.
