Should first time pregnant women celebrate Mother's Day?

If you don't have the baby, yet, but are pregnant, do you still celebrate being a mother?

When I was pregnant with baby #1 I celebrated Mother's Day at home, and when at church when they asked all mothers to stand, I did.  In my eyes, once conception occurs, you have become a mother. :)

I didn't really with my first while I was pregnant but my FIL did send me flowers anyway. He is such a sweet man.

When I was pregnant with my first, I celebrated with all the Mother's at church.  They had all the mothers stand up and the pastor actually made sure that I was standing up with all the mothers.  You are considered a mother the moment you find out you are pregnant but everyone is different though.

No, they're not mothers yet. That's stupid.

So someone that tests positive at 3-4 weeks and loses the baby is a mom? I never considered myself a mother before I gave birth and actually MOTHERED my children. I had a loss, I was not a mother.

Quoting MamaPanda16:

Of course, you're still a mom even if you haven't given birth yet. Are you growing the baby? Are you loving that baby? Are you scared for, planning for, and nurturing that baby? ...... What's the difference then?
