39 Weeks

That is how pregnant I’ll be tomorrow.
And let me tell you, 39 weeks sure is pregnant.
I’m so pregnant that I’m looking forward
to labor and delivery
just so I won’t be pregnant anymore.

And I must look it too.
Starting yesterday complete strangers
have found it appropriate to inform me
that I look like I’m ready to have a baby.

I loathe it when strangers talk to me about being pregnant.
So from now on I’m going to say,
“Yep, and I’m having strong contractions right now.
I hope my water doesn’t break.”
