Poem About Talking to Unborn Child

As the baby kicks around in the womb, the mother wonders what he or she will be like. One thing she knows for sure this baby will be loved unconditionally.

A Boy Or A Girl

© Regina M. Linn
At first you moved,
only a little.
I could always find you,
right in the middle.

As time went on,
you really started to grow.
It wasn't a whole lot,
in fact, it was rather slow.

Before I knew it,
you were all over the place.
It kind of felt like
you were running a race.

People would ask me
if you were a boy or a girl.
I would sit and wonder,
if you would have curls.

There are so many things
I really want to know.
But you are hidden inside,
so the answers don't show.

How much will you weigh?
How tall will you be?
What color is your hair?
Will you even like me?

I hope and pray
you feel like you belong.
I never want you to feel
like you are alone.

Your Dad and I
planned you from the start.
You, my dear child,
were made straight from our hearts.

In about a week or so,
I'll meet you, for the first time.
For you are the product
of your Dad's love and mine.

There will be no one like you,
not any place in the world.
It really doesn't matter
if you are a boy or a girl.

We are both so happy
that you even exist.
The gender doesn't matter.
you'll be hard to resist.

I hope I make you proud,
that I am your mother every day.
Because, you have filled my dreams
in more ways than words can say.

It won't be long before
I can look you in the eyes.
I can feel the excitement growing,
I know I'm going to cry.

Don't worry my angel,
those tears will be of joy.
It won't matter to me
if you are a girl or a boy.

  • That is just beautiful. Pregnancy is such a beautiful experience. I can still remember while I was still pregnant with my son, we had to wait till birth to know the sex. All my life I've always wanted to have a son. Immediately after I gave birth and the Dr told me it was a boy, I just burst out in tears cause my heart was overflowing with joy! His birth weight was 4,9 kg. He's two years old now.
