Am I a mommy?

I am 23 weeks pregnant with my first. Does this make me a mommy yet or do I have to wait until my baby is born?

I just want to know the politics of calling yourself a mommy.

  • I guess it depend on whether you consider it a "baby" or a "fetus".
    IMO, you have been a Mommy from the moment of conception! =)

  • IMO, you are a mommy at the time of conception. These days, we know the sex and name and sometimes even have great 3D photos of our babies before they are out of the womb. I guess as soon as you feel like a mommy, you are one.

  • You are a mommy the second you become pregnant. You are already taking care of that child, therefore, you are a mommy before birth.

  • Your a mommy....just like moms who adopt...it doesnt matter if you carry the baby or not and it doesnt matter if the baby is born yet...if you carry or just do all the hard work once they are here you are a mom...hell if your a man raising kids by yourself i still say your a mom.
