A poem about becoming a mum, the bad times and good, but overall the unconditional love :-)

Nine months of being ill, Sick morning noon and night. Hormones flying everywhere, Stomach big and clothes too tight.

I felt you kick and I can't explain the way it made me feel, At my scan I saw you move and it all became so real.

Contractions, pushing, stitches too, Screaming in pain, as you do, Waiting and longing for the agony to disappear, And your baby to finally be here.

All the pain finally leaves, You can smell and hear and think, An angel sent from above, Unconditional love.

Tantrums, tears and sleepless nights, Kisses, cuddles and teaching wrong from right.

Was it worth it to become a mum? I'd honestly do it all again. No regrets, some lessons learned, And a title that I hope I have earned!

Im sure motherhood has much more for me, And all of those things, I can't wait to see. All I can say is I look forward to the rest, Because being your mum makes me truly blessed.
