Everyone has that moment when it finally hits you: “Wow! I’m someone’s mom!”

We asked Bumpies to share when they had this realization, and we guarantee that you can relate. 

 When did you “know” you were a mom?

Re: You know you’re a mom when...

  • Your baby coughs and sprays breast milk into your open mouth. You were just admiring how cute she looks and now are left speechless.

  • You know you're a mom when going to wal mart by yourself is SO exciting. Or when you can't wait for baby to take a nap, then you miss them the whole time they're sleeping.

  • At my first sonogram, my spouse and mother accompanied me. The nurse said, "I will show mom first." I misinterpreted, thinking my mother would see first, and the nurse turned to me. That's the moment I moved to Mom stage, and my mother was in Grandma stage.

    AW!! Reading that gave me goosebumps! What a special moment!

  • Yup, I agree with when you're sitting on the toilet nursing a baby because you have the trots but you are home alone and he's hungry. Deep end of the pool!

    Transfer of 2 5-day blasts and (FINALLY) BFFP!! 1st ultrasound shows two sacs and two HB, but one is sluggish, almost expecting vanishing twin Subsequent ultrasound confirmed vanishing twin, but my other Little critter looks fantastic!
