Here is my best explanation:

'period when expecting' is the definition.
(period of time when expecting a baby)

'conclusion from beat poet' is the wordplay.
'conclusion from' suggests the final letters.
'poet' becomes 'rimester' (alternative spelling of rhymester).
The final letter of 'beat' is 't'.
't'+'rimester'='TRIMESTER'
