Birth bead swap (Sending time!) - Page 4

post #61 of 95
Heather - I got your bead - it's beautiful! As is the card!

I just weighed my envelopes and they were all .37, so I just put a stamp on them. I did write Hand Cancel on the envelope and didn't know you needed extra $$ for them to do that! Hopefully you will all get your beads!

Yay! I got beads today from Rebecca, Desiree, and Kelly. Thank you so much ladies.... I get all teary eyed every time I read one of the notes that came with the beads...I just can't believe the tremendous amount of love and support that can come from someone you've never even met. I can't wait to use these beads during labor and birth and know that you are all "with" me, supporting me and cheering me on. And I can't wait till you all use yours and I can send my love and support to you.

I agree with Bethany. I am suprised at how much I am loving the notes and cards that are coming with the beads, which i have gotten from Desiree, Rebecca, Melia, and Aubin so far. I am trying to think of a way to make a poster or something out of the card and notes to easily see during labor.

Anyone else missing beads?

You should have all received mine by now. Minnow, are you the only one missing a bead on the five list? I'm so sorry. I'll send another one asap.

Whew, good. I don't feel like the only one then!!! : I just got my beads. I'm sorry I'm so late! (It figures, here in the Baby Shower swap I was the first to send and now I'm holding up the rear... at least I have good company with Julie! )

Also, I'm getting envelopes in the mail, but with my whole scare a couple weeks ago, I decided to wait to open them until closer to when I want to birth! :LOL: But, the thing is... I'm only supposed to get 4, but I have more than that here. Did something happen?

Yes, Desiree gave those of us on the 10 list your addy too so we could send you some support and encouragement if we wanted too.

I too, am late in sending out my beads.. : With working full time still and trying to get everything ready in my room for the baby, I just haven't had the time to get to the right stores.. : But I have them now and will be sending them out on Wednesday. I still have to write the notes and I also have my last concert to attend for a while. Nine Inch Nails, here I come!

ooh ooh ooh, Spark, open mine now. i sent strong baby stay put vibes with it, you'll see. (from Jenny Hoffman in Baltimore; it may be in a small box? i can't remember.)

Heather, thank you for the beautiful bead! And Elizabeth, i love the natural element of the coconut bead, since i'm going for a natural, unmedicated, uncomplicated birth. and Jessica, the bright green reminds me of my vitality and the strong lifeforce of this baby. one more bead to go, and i'm taking them over to my jewelry-making friend's house to put them all together. thanks again for all the well-wishes; it's great to know we're all in this together!

Has anyone gotten any of my beads yet? Bethany Romero from IL. I sent out all 10 last week, received 5 of them back in the mail for not enough postage...re-sent those 5 and have no clue what ever happened to the other 5. So if anyone's recieved mine please let me know.
