Oh my aching uterus

Funny, motherhood, parenting

Oh what it is to be a woman. No sooner have we recovered from the car crash that was the first child and our first taste of parenthood, not to mention getting a beautiful full night’s sleep night after night; that mean old bully the uterus wades in there, punching her fists in the air, protesting that she wants to be kicked back into action again. Despite our brains quite clearly kicking their legs in protest – NOOOOOOO!

Somehow, the physical and the mental are just not meeting in the middle, not talking to each other, and so here’s a funny little skit in the form of a poem to make all those with protesting, desperate uteruses have a little laugh…

Oh my aching uterus

How loudly you do speak

You tell me you want another child

I can feel you literally tweak

Inside me from your longings and urge

But perhaps you should check in first

With my heart, my mind and hormones

That are still rather reeling from the very first

You operate on another wave length

It’s you and my ovaries, that protest

About how you’re now being totally ignored

You say I must act, at your behest

But woah slow down there uterus

I’m not sure if I’m ready for all that

You’re taking things way too far, too fast

We might end up in a spat

I’ll let you know if and when I’m good and ready

For now, I have other things I need to do

So please pipe down there madam uterus

Until it’s I, that am ready, not you

Does this describe anyone else’s uterus mayhem right now? I’d love to hear if you uterus has got a mind of it’s own too….

  1. This is awesome!! I gave in to my aching uterus but now I am DONE! Done, I tell you – D O N E! Oh how I miss sleep though. Mim x

  2. Yep, me too. I’m not fighting it though, no point waiting till my life is back in order before I throw another spanner in the works 🙂 Fun post! #coolmumclub

  3. Haha..This is so funny!!! Love it. Luckily, my uterus and I are not on speaking terms anymore, or maybe I’ve gone deaf due to age!!! So I am allowed to laugh at other people’s uterus. #coolmumclub

  4. My two boys are five years apart and now that I’m single again and 38 yrs old, I have decided to just plain ignore my uterus. She gives me enough grief with all the acting up she’s decided to do once a month! LOL! Yep, I have learned to ignore her whining. Great poem! Visiting from #coolmumclub

  5. Oh this horrible, terrible struggle. All the logical reasoning in the world just doesn’t seem to make a difference… #parentingpicks

  6. So true and so beautifully written. Thank you!

    My uterus talks to me all the livelong day! ALL. THE. LIVE. LONG. DAY! Sometimes I wish it would just shush! 😉

    Mind you, my stomach also talks. I’ve been known to feed one to silence the other…

    Great post! Thank you lovely! #coolmumclub

  7. My uterus is still demanding more babies even at the grand old age of 40something. I dont think its even possible any more, but that doesnt shut her up!! #Coolmumclub

    • Hehe I really try to put things across in that combination so glad you thought so. At least now your uterus knows to pipe down!!!

  9. My uterus never stops aching, I think I could have ten children and still be aching for just one more!! I have five, I think it’s time to stop!!! Fab post though!! #justanotherlinky

  10. Aaaah, my uterus gave me an almighty punch into wanting some further action today, when my friend came over with her baby! I have to keep telling it that I hate being pregnant more than it likes to grow babies… It’s an ongoing conflict!
