Would anyone be interested in swapping gifts for mom? Or any ideas you may have. I believe it will have to be posted in the swap section but I think it would be fun

I love the birth beads also but I was hoping to do that a bit later in pregnancy, You know when you are fat and happy verses skinny and sick.

How about something that you would want to comfort a newly pregnant mom, like a nice pillow, natural non smelly nail polish, preggie books, recipe books, knitting supplies with pattern, etc.

http://www.birthbeads.com/

Here's a link so you see what they look like. In the other DDC's, I think what they're doing is collecting beads and a message, prayer, or wish from each participant, then distributing the sets of beads to everyone. Each person ends up with a set of various beads from the participating members.

Suggestion:
If we do the birth bead idea (cool!), we may need to drop the spiritual aspect of it and think more "mamas supporting mamas." I think more of us would enjoy it that way.

Back to the first trimester topic...
