Is anyone celebrating Mother’s Day as a mommy, even though they’re pregnant with their first? I know, I don’t want to jinx it but I really hope husband does something for me. Last year he got me a present since he “knew I was going to be the mommy of his babies one day,” so I hope I get at least a little something this year too. Any one else? Pros and cons?

I hope we will celebrate it, but I don’t think it will happen. I have mentioned it a few times, and the response I have gotten is “but you aren’t actually a mother yet”. I can understand their point, but it drives me nuts!!!!! Also because our son is due in early June, DH gets his father’s day, but I miss mother’s day (by a couple of weeks).
At this point I am “okay” if we don’t celebrate mother’s day for me, but I swear, if I hear “but you aren’t a mother yet” one more time, I will go horomonal ape-shit!

We are visiting his mom and my mom, so I’m not sure there is going to be any time for me. I’m not that thrilled about running around all day. :

We are going to a dog show and then to SIL’s birthday party (she’s turning 14, needless to say there’s a significant age gap between her and DH).
So nope, no “mommy-to-be” celebration.

I must admit, I am hoping for a little acknowledgement tomorrow, nothing major, but a card from Darling Husband would be nice. I don’t think I’ll get it, so I’m not expecting anything. It’s not that Darling Husband isn’t great about making the holidays special for me, I just think he sees it the same way Miss Smurf’s Darling Husband does!

I have to “eat” my words here….. Darling Husband surprised me with a nice bouquet of flowers today (all the flower stores are closed tomorrow).
I was shocked and I didn’t even know what to say, so Darling Husband broke down and told me why he ended up getting the flowers. He was in the flower store getting some flowers for his mother, when he ran into one of his friends, Jack. Jack asked how things were going with my pregnancy and if my Darling Husband was there to get flowers for me. Darling Husband responded with the famous line “she isn’t a mother yet”, to which Jack replied “WTH jackass, it’s not the same as guys, a woman becomes a mom the instant she finds out she is pregnant”. I LOVE JACk!!!! That guy logic totally clicked with Darling Husband, so now he is super excited for tomorrow. I totally owe Jack a six-pack of beer!
So don’t lose hope @EngagedToPanda, apparantly men just need a kick in the ass from a good friend!

I do not have high hopes and this is my second “real” Mother’s Day (like with a kid outside the womb). But since I also have the one in the womb and have been doing poorly physically, I’d like to think that would mean something. I’ll be surprised with more than a card. 🙁
@Miss Smurf: I need Jack’s #. 🙂

@Miss Smurf: Aww, that’s great! Too bad Darling Husband doesn’t have any Jack-type friends, only lots of Mr. Smurfs lol!

I’m photographing my friends wedding today (i’m a wedding photographer on the side) and then going to spend the night at my mom’s house and going to wake up and give her a massage (i’m going through massage therapy school and almost graduated!) and then probably have breakfast and go shopping…

I am not expecting anything but wouldn’t be mad if I got a card from Darling Husband 😉

I definitely wouldn’t mind a little something but am trying not to expect anything. (I’m only 14 weeks.) We were all in the car last week when my Father-In-Law asked if this Mother’s Day “counts”. I said absolutely! DH didn’t say anything so who knows. He’s much more sweet and sentimental than I am, but he’s also a little spacey on occassion and very busy these days. Who knows!

Darling Husband has planned a special day for me and my mom. Brunch at the Museum we got married at followed by mani/pedis for me and my mom. His mom has told him that it’s still her day, not mine as I’m not actually a mom until the baby is born. Fortunately, Darling Husband doesn’t agree with her.

@WinterWhite2012: Your Mother-In-Law sounds like a peach.
