I love to hear how moms celebrate their upcoming birth, anyone have any plans?
Two of my friends are throwing a small brunch/shower on Sunday to meet the dads and celebrate the twins. I think it will be along the lines of a more traditional "baby shower", just on a smaller scale. Potluck brunch, a couple games and instead of baby items as gifts, everyone was invited to bring their favorite childrens book to start the babies library.
Later in May, a few of my favorite, closest women friends are coming over on the Full Moon, for a potluck meal and sharing birth stories/pictures/videos in anticipation of the twins birth. Low key, simple and I'm really looking forward to it. :)
When I was in a due date club here for my last two babies, we did stuff like birth beads and a gift exchange. It was kind of neat to have the energy of pregnant mommas from all over! And to see pictures of mommas in labor with the bracelets they made with the beads from all the mommas. I've also seen people share other things, like prayer flags or small handmade items, and I'm sure there are tons of other ideas out there. Not sure if anyone would like to participate in something like that, but if there's interest, I'd be happy to coordinate.
