That's a personal choice. Some women think they are, some don't.

I'm pregnant as well. So as mother's day is coming up my mom is getting me a gift.

I think you are a mother more and more during your pregnancy.

As you prepare for your baby you learn how to be a mother.
In my eyes I am already at 5 months pregnant

I think its up to each woman to decide...some ladies feel they become a mother the day their baby is born...other's feel they become a mom the day they find out they are pregnant

If you feel you're a mom...you are :)

I believe you are a mom from conception. We make decisions during pregnacy that effect the baby and we put the baby first above our own needs. Taking prenatals are a pain for me but I do my best to remember and to take them so that my baby gets everything they need.

It's all perspective.

Read our weekly pregnancy journal for...

I agree.

Quoting zdtmok: That's a personal choice. Some women think they are, some don't.

Absolutely, at conception, you change things about your lifestyle to care for and protect your baby. I believe that makes you a mother.

My mother gave me a gift for mother's day when I was pregnant with my first. I considered myself a mom even though my dd hadn't been born yet.
