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.

Bethany, mama to M (9), J (7), S (4), and baby BOY 9/13/10!!

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.

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.

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.

I'm sorry Nicole.

So many of my beads have *barely* made it to me (holes in the envelopes). One was missing the bead as well. Desiree's envelope to me had been completey torn in half and looked like it had been run over. At least the post office had the courtesy to stick the two halves in another envelope and send it that way (and believe it or not the beads stayed put!)

I can't wait to start stringing the beads together.

Yes, Desiree, there were still three beads in it. I don't know how they made it, but they did!

I got yours Julie, they are beautiful! Good thing you had them wrapped so well, there was only one layer of tissue left keeping them in the envelope by the time I got it.

That is soooo frustrating, I paid for it to not go through the machine and I thought I put ample tissue paper around them, arrggg. Probably whoever used the bubble wrap had the best idea.

Did anyone else not get theirs? I will go down and get some more to resend.

Sorry Desiree!

No no! No need to resend or apologize, it's not your fault! Some of the ones I sent came ripped open to people too (and I did the hand cancel thing too! I swear they dont care!)
