  • Heck yeah mama!!! You are a mother who is caring for, nurturing, watching over, and loving a little baby forming in your belly!! I was 5 months pregnant on Mothers Day last year and hubby had me dress up and we went out to eat. I will ALWAYS remember my first Mommy's Day! And the other moms will fuss all over you too!

  • if your mom invited you im sure its fine. i felt the same way, so i really don't have a yes or no answer. i was a waitress w/my first and all the mommies got flowers to wear if they had to work that day and they got me one..i was like ummm im not a mommy for 6 more months don't you think thats a little weird. and they all told me nope, when you have to start carrying it around you are now mommy. so look at it that way

  • Absolutely go. My Mom invited me to a very special brunch for Mothers Day when I was 6 weeks pregnant. I was so sick I couldn't eat it is still a very special memory.
