i agree with everyone - the beads are amazing and all the notes so special and full of strength from each of you.  :)  dp was very touched (i organized the whole thing and while i told her about it in passing i'm not sure she really understood until the beads arrived!!) and also sends along her thanks to everyone who participated. 

 

we will be 40 weeks tomorrow.  baby girl is as snug as a bug in a rug although we can tell now that she has trouble getting comfortable with all the wriggling and alien action going on.  dp now has stretch marks on her stretch marks and it seems a couple of new ones pop up every day now!!  we started on epo today and she'll have acupuncture on saturday.  :)

I finally (!) strung my beads today and wanted to share a picture of the completed bracelet, because I love it so much.  Reading through everyone's notes again just filled me with such warmth and good feeling for you all.  Congratulations to everyone who's had their babies already and good luck again to those of us that're left!

Love it!  I keep meaning to take a picture of mine to post but I keep forgetting.  With all the beautiful beads it's too big on my wrist and just falls right off so I think it will be an anklet during labor.  I saved all the notes to put in the little guy's baby book.

I haven't strung mine (I'm still at 3 weeks and counting so I have time) because I want to take individual pictures to remember which bead goes with which woman).  I'll get there!

 

JuneBoyMum - what about making it a nursing necklace?  That's what I did with my son's set and it worked perfectly.
