Pregnancy is a disease from which you recover in 18 years and 9 months.
A moment in my tummy... a lifetime in my heart.
A baby is something you carry inside you for nine months, in your arms for three years and in your heart till the day you die.
A mother's joy begins when new life is
when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the
very first time,
and a playful kick reminds her that she
is never alone.
A special moment with you safely growing inside of me.
All the time we wondered and wondered, who is this person growing deep, deep inside.
Baby in the tummy, it's all up to mommy
But once the baby's had, it's bragging rights for Daddy.
Before you were born I carried you under my heart. From the moment you arrived in this world until the moment I leave it, I will always carry you in my heart.
Before you were conceived I wanted you
Before you were born I loved you
Before you were here an hour I would die for you
This is the miracle of Mother's Love.
Feeling fat last nine months but the joy of becoming a mom lasts forever.
For now in mommy's tummy...Forever in her heart...
Making a decision to have a child--it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.
I cough, therefore I pee...
The decision to have a child
is to accept that your heart will forever walk about
outside your body
Stretch Marks are the badge of a real woman
You're gonna miss this, you're gonna want this back. You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast. These are some good times, so take a good look around. You may not know it now, but you're gonna miss this.
The most important thing she'd learned over the years was that there was no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.
Though there are lots of things to worry about during pregnancy, I think that stretch marks are, for many women, the most dreaded. I mean, they're permanent! They fade to your skin color, but they are still there. How Terrifying is that?
You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in Your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.
Everything grows rounder and wider and weirder, and I sit here in the middle of it all and wonder who in the world you will turn out to be.
Life is always a rich and steady time when you are waiting for something to happen or to hatch.
There are three reasons for breast-feeding: the milk is always at the right temperature; it comes in attractive containers; and the cat can't get it.
Being a mother means that your heart is no longer yours; it wanders wherever your children do.
There is only one pretty child in the world and every mother has it.
I look forward to your birth,
when I can kiss your skin,
but for now I will just smile,
As I feel you play within.
Who will you look like,
How will you be?
Will you look like Daddy or me?
Ten little fingers and ten little toes,
A wrinkled up forehead and a cute button nose.
You will be crying with that first cold touch,
And so will I because I love you so much.

I'm not interested in being Wonder Woman in the delivery room. Give me drugs.
No language can express the power and beauty and heroism of a mother's love.
