about

While singing this song to myself two weeks ago, it occurred to me I should write it out and sing it for others. I did the debut performance one week ago at Con on the Cob with Carla Ulbrich on guitar, sans 'fetus' voice. Now I bring you a studio-ish version, complete with Tom Smith on instrumental. A few 'fetus' jokes were stolen from the internet or from Luke Ski. And yes, for the record, I am pregnant, not just fat. :D

lyrics

“Pregnancy is Strange” -- Lyrics
By Carrie Dahlby (10/9/2011)

(Alex: Uhhh... where am I? What is all this... stuff? Why can’t I get out? Who am I? Mommy, I don’t understand!)
Pregnancy is strange
Pregnancy is weird
(Alex: You think it’s weird? How do you think I feel?)
A human took up residence inside of me, so I think that
Pregnancy is strange
(Alex: Wheee!!!)

Aren’t I supposed to be glowing
Now that my big tummy’s showing?
Actually I just keep eating and eating, so
Instead my butt and thighs are growing

I did not approve all these bodily changes
Like swollen and tender cans
Ironically, this singularly female experience
Was all caused by a man!

Pregnancy is strange
Pregnancy is weird
(Alex: Mommy, I’m hungry! Eat five pizzas!)
There’s a skeleton inside of my skeleton (ew!)
Pregnancy is strange


Everything hurts and everything sweats
Even parts I didn’t think could
If strangers want to touch my belly I am supposed to just
Smile and think it’s all good

Pregnancy is strange
Pregnancy is weird

Luckily my mood has been on an even keel
IN SPITE OF EVERYONE GETTING ON MY CASE ALL THE TIME,
AT HOME, AT WORK, AND THE KICKING, OH GOD, THE CONSTANT
KICKING WHILE I’M SLEEPING! CAN’T I HAVE FIVE MINUTES OF PEACE??
Pregnancy is strange!


The hormones and emotions are raging away
Giving me doubts and hopes and fears
I swear to god this is the only time in my life
I’ve worn headphones 2 feet below my ears!

Pregnancy is strange
Pregnancy is weird

Watch out cuz your uterus could be next!
Pregnancy is strange
Pregnancy is weird

The craziest part is how I could fall asleep just about anywhere...
