Hi Everyone! I need some help finding songs about becoming pregnant, or having a baby; like Celine Dion's song "A New Day Has Come". My best friend tried for 6 years. And now finally she's pregnant!. So I wanted to make her a CD. Thanks in advance. I also posted this on the community board, but I think here is better.

There is a fairly new Carly Simon CD "Into the White" all of the songs are really beautiful. They are geared for a baby or mom. There is one song that literally makes me cry, it is about a child being the love of her life it is so pretty w/ out being sappy like those "fathers eyes" type of songs.
I think any Mom to be would :love: it, & she can listen to it in the car w/ the new Babe!!

Baby Mine is one of my favorites! I also love-


Natural Woman
It will be me - Faith Hill
You are my sunshine
You are the sunshine of my life
The Wonder of You- Elvis
O Sole Mio - Pavorotti
So this is love- Cinderella
Once upon a Dream- Sleeping Beauty
A Dream is a wish your heart makes- Cinderella
When you wish upon a star- Jiminy Cricket
I'm every woman - Whitney Houston

These are a few that I can think of quickly. I will come back later with more.

Desi Arnaz sang a beautiful song on "I Love Lucy" when Lucy told Ricky she was expecting. It's called "We're having a baby, my baby and me".

Technically not about babies or pregnancy, but "I Could Not Ask For More" by Edwin McCain. I heard this the night my DS was born. Two years of fertility treatment, 2 miscarriages and a stillborn daughter, and here I was, finally, with my healthy baby in my arms. "I have all I've waited for, and I could not ask for more". :love: :love:

Also, "Taking You Home" by Don Henley. "There were days, lonely days, when the world wouldn't throw me a crumb...but I kept on believing that this day would come...and this love, is like nothing I have ever known...take my hand...I'm taking you home". :love: :love:

DH gets teary every time he hears Arms Wide Open by Creed, written when he found out he was going to be a Dad for the first time.

You Raise Me Up- Josh Groban
Let Them Be Little- Billy Dean
From this Moment- Shania Twain
Ave Maria
Have I told you Lately that I love you?- Rod Stewart
You are so beautiful to me- Joe Cocker
The first time ever I saw your face - Roberta Flack (think sonogram)
I am you Child- Barry Mannilow
Annie's Song (you fill up my senses) John Denver
The Gift- Jim Brickman



Listen to any love song and it is fitting for a child. There truly is no love like the love you have for your child.:love: :cloud9:

Our song while we were waiting to have our 1st child was
Blessed - By Elton John It talks about how blessed a child would be if only one would come to you. It is beautiful!

This is not technically a baby song, and I don't even know the titel or artist, but I know someone will!!

When I was pregnant for the 1st time, the song "I knew I loved you before I met you. I think I brought you into life" or something like that came out on the radio (2000). I know it was a love song, but I sang it as a love song for my unborn child.

When I was pregnant with DS my sister gave me the Anne Geddes "Miracle" book/CD set. Beautiful Anne Geddes photographs and equally beautiful, touching songs recorded by Celine Dion. These songs made me cry while I was expecting and do so even more since giving birth to my own little "miracle":cloud9: It was the most touching gift given to me when I was expecting - I think it'd be perfect for your friend:thumbsup2 I think you can get it at any book store, or amazon - here's a link for a bit of info:

Congrats to your friend, and what a great friend you are!

It's an old song, and not very mainstream, but Kate Bush's Room for the Life is about pregnancy.

"No, we never die for long,
While we've got that little life
To live for, where it's hid inside.
No, we never die for long,
Oh! Woman, two in one,

There's room for a life in your womb, woman,
Inside of you can be two, woman,
There's room for a life in your womb, woman,
Mama woman, aha!"

You can probably find it on ITunes, and preview it before you buy.

Best of luck to her!

I Knew I Loved You, by Savage Garden! I was pregnant with DD7 when I first heard that song and oh I cried, it was so beautiful and although it was meant as a love song, it was my song for my new baby, I still get teary-eyed when I hear that song and think about my sweet little girl I waited so long to have.

"Isn't She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder
"For Baby" by John Denver
"You'll Be in My Heart" by Phil Collins (Tarzan soundtrack)
"Little One" this is from a children's CD/book set called Rhinocerous Tap by Sandra Boynton. Most of the songs are funny and silly, but "Little One" is sweet.
"House at Pooh Corner" and "Return to Pooh Corner" by Kenny Loggins
"Lullabye/Goodnight My Angel" by Billy Joel

I love the song In My Arms by Plumb. The cd does not come out till October but it is on Itunes. You can hear the song if you go to youtube and search for it.

it is a song that everytime I hear it makes me cry. It talks about how our children will find out that this world is not always ways fair, but they will always be safe in our arms.

This is one of my favorites, sung by Dan Hill:

When she told me
She was gonna have a baby
A part of me went weighless
For the first time in my life
There was nothing I could say
It's like a miracle from the stars above
Paralized with fear
I was overcome with love

She said soon you'll hear the beating
Of an unborn heart
This is the answer
You've been searching for so hard
And for the first time in my life I felt
The wave of love so deep
As I listened for the unborn child's heartbeat

I said something stupid like, how are you feeling
She smiled the warmest smile I've ever seen
Ohhh, I guess that said it all
Now were a far cry from the storybook romance
Something in her eyes, made me crumble
I reached out for her hand

She said soon, you'll hear the beating
Of an unborn heart
This is the answer
You've been searching for so hard
And for the first time in my life I felt
The wave of love so deep
As I listened for the unborn child's heartbeat

Now we all know how crazy
This world can be sometimes
And I lie awake at night and wonder
How a child survives
Beyond the danger in the strangers
And the inhumanity
Lord give us strength to someday find a world that lives in peace

Ohhh

Soon, you'll hear the beating
Of an unborn heart
This is the answer
You've been searching for so hard
And for the first time in my life I felt
The wave of love so deep
As I listened for the unborn child's heartbeat

Ohhh, I can almost hear the beating...

Here is another: I sang my kids to sleep with this song.....ahh, memories.

CHILD OF MINE

Although you see the world different than me
Sometimes I can touch upon the wonders that you see
All the new colors and pictures you've designed
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Child of mine, child of mine
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

You don't need direction, you know which way to go
And I don't want to hold you back, I just want to watch you grow
You're the one who taught me you don't have to look behind
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Child of mine, child of mine
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Nobody's gonna kill your dreams
Or tell you how to live your life
There'll always be people to make it hard for a while
But you'll change their heads when they see you smile

The times you were born in may not have been the best
But you can make the times to come better than the rest
I know you will be honest if you can't always be kind
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Child of mine, child of mine,
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Child of mine, child of mine
Oh yes, sweet darling
So glad you are a child of mine

Come on girls. Let's get the disclaimer out there. Alot of these songs made me cry while pregnant, but so did the "heartbeat Khala" beanie at the Disney Store. We are all a bit hormonally challenged during those months.:thumbsup2

"Eat for Two" by 10,000 Maniacs.

Also, "Sweet Child o' Mine" by Guns and Roses - I bet it's been ages since you heard that song, but when you listen to it, it's really nice.

"Little Miss Magic" by Jimmy Buffett is really sweet - he wrote it for his daughter. It's more from the dad's perspective, but still nice.

All too true...I was a wreck, cried at pretty much everything. We went to see the movie "Blow" w/Johnny Depp, and I bawled my eyes out at the end...where he imagines that his daughter has come to visit him in prison. Seriously, I was crying so hard people were staring, and DH just kept saying "She's pregnant..." and everyone would just sort of nod and walk away...took me half an hour to stop crying...

I absolutely love Aerosmith's "Don't wanna miss a thing" for having a baby. Everytime I hear it, I think about my children.
