2. Is it possible that the poet has another type of gestation in mind, besides the literal one (e.g., the gestation of a poem or novel)? (Metaphors)

--> First of all, the poem can be interpreted literally. It describes the gestation of the speaker. She is carrying a child insider her body before birth. It is also possible that the poet has another type of gestation in her mind.

On a higher level of abstraction, gestation itself can be seen as a metaphor for another product - poems and other creative works. It describes the time of development of a thought or an idea before it is made known by writing. A piece of art is also a riddle before it is created.
