You're not a mom-to-be; you're already a mother
Just as life begins at conception, so does motherhood. It may not be in the same way as you will be after your child is born and you're nursing their fevers, playing with them and teaching them right from wrong. But you're already your child's protector and nurturer. You're already thinking about him or her all the time, and praying for him or her. And so, from the first day you knew you were pregnant, motherhood has fully begun.
