Being Pregnant and Celebrating Mother's Day


When I was pregnant with my oldest son, I didn’t get the chance to celebrate Mother’s Day… everyone made me feel like I wasn’t really a mother yet, although I really was.

I have found so many conflicting opinions on this since that time. Some feel like only mothers of actual born children can celebrate, and others believe that once you get that positive pregnancy test… you are golden for any mom related holiday on the calendar.

To me?  I think that once a woman is pregnant, she is a mother, and if she wants to celebrate the newest Hallmark holiday that honors her… more power to it.  Pregnancy is hard, it is not a walk in the park for most women, and they should get some kind of pat on the back, or box of chocolates to help her know she really is appreciated.

Pregnant women shouldn’t feel bad because they want to be included… after all they are Mothers!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mom’s out there today!
