I just happened upon this spread over at Aeclectic Tarot, and WOW. I am just loving it. Here's the link to the OP's thread, but here, also, is the text.

I tried it on myself and got an incredibly interesting response. I'm already five months in, so I was able to look back at the cards I got for conception through month five and reflect on what I experienced (insight into the past readings are as much fun for me as possibilities of the future readings). I was able to see right away what I should focus on in preparing for my birth, and my hunch that I was having a girl was corroborated.

Hope you tarot mamas have as much fun with this as I did...

"So here goes. This spread primarily focuses on what the mother is thinking and feeling throughout the pregnancy, along with factual information about the baby itself.

..........................6
......................5.......7
..................4..............8
..............3......................9
.....1...2..............................10...11
...................12...13...14

Cards 2 thru 10 are laid out in a semi-circle, not a pyramid, but I couldn't really show that here.

Card 1: Conception
Cards 2-10: months 1-9 of pregnancy
Card 11: Labor/birth
Card 12: Will this be a multiple birth (i.e., twins)?
Card 13: What is the sex of the unborn child?
Card 14: Will the baby arrive on time?

A couple notes:
The gestational period roughly corresponds to nine solar months or ten lunar months. If you're a more lunar person, feel free to add a card for the 10th month.

I use my intuition to read one card yes/no either/or questions such as for cards 12-14. Please use any system that you are comfortable with. Clarification cards may be helpful here.

I envision this for the new mom-to-be (still in the first trimester), but I imagine it could be used at anypoint during the pregnancy."
