Overdue or Not Overdue?

My baby's not a library book, 
So he's not overdue. 
My baby won't take too long to cook 
'Cause he's not veggie stew.

My baby's not an elephant.
And I am not fit to burst.
The time and date aren't relevant - 
We're blessed with days, not cursed.

My baby can't read dates yet 
Because he's very new.
There's no cause to fuss and fret 
If he doesn't come on cue.

So stop your worry.
Stop your asking.
There's no hurry.
We're just relaxing
In this golden pregnant time, 
This pause... just his and mine.

Now, you leave us be...
We are just fine.
