At what point do you become a mother? James and I were having this discussion and I was just curious what others thought. Do you become a mother the moment you find out your pregnant? That's when you realize that your body is no longer your own. Do you become a mother the first time you see your baby during an ultrasound? When you're newly pregnant you know there is life growing inside of you, but when you see the baby on the ultrasound, it just changes everything. Do you become a mother when you find out what you're having? You mentally get to prepare for that gender: decorate, shop for, name the baby. You can bond in a different way. Do you become a mother at birth? Do you become a mother the moment you hold your baby? I know there is no right or wrong answer because people have different opinions, but I'd like to know them. James said at birth. That makes sense. As for my answer, the jury is still out.
