I know I've said this before but just as a reminder...
The swap can be sent before or after the babe is born and can be for mom or baby or both. There is no $ amt set, just give from the heart!!
I love swaps!! Can't wait

Thanks Ann!
One question: Are we giving a gift to the same person that we are receiving a gift from? Or are we giving to one momma and getting from another?

I didn't think about that...a matched pr I mean. I could do that or just have each person give to someone different. Makes no difference to me! Preferences anyone?

I think I would prefer getting from a different person than we're giving to...but that's just me.

Mom to two boys, 7 and 10.  Expecting 3rd boy any day now with DH (his first).

My preference is to give a gift to a different person than we're receiving from too. Kinda makes the giving circle that much larger, you know.

Yup, me too. I would like them to be different, too.

I agree with everyone else. Feels more like a community that way in my opinion.

Oh, I feel bad but I wasn't really gonna sign up for both...is that terrible? Just due to finances and all I thought I'd just pick one or the other, and so I went with the bead exchange...not that this wouldn't be fun or anything. So can I still save face if I remove myself from the list??

NO problem Amie! That's why I wanted to confirm with everyone since we finalized the bead list and thought some may have decided on one over the other.
And I'll match up as planned then, different swappers.

OK MAMAs-here's the list!
Here's how it works! You give to the person below you and the last person gives to the first-make sense? Just contact them via PM for their address and any other info you may want/need.
Have fun and remember-it's from the heart so don't stress about about much $$ it is or anything like that 2

The only deadline may be within a few weeks of the birth but I'll leave it up to you and your swappee.
And most importantly...have a wonderful labor and birth
