I ran a bead swap for the October 2007 group and we had a lot of fun doing it and I was wondering if anyone would be interested in swapping on this board? I would send out another message when we are all into our 2nd trimester and have everyone who is interested pm me and I will send a link to an outside group since we can't do it directly here. Everyone would send me enough beads for everyone who is involved and I would separate and ship them out in the paid envelopes that you provide. Here is a link to the pictures of the finished necklaces and things. http://www.flickr.com/photos/7758586@N07/3022370172/

I would LOVE to do a bead swap!! My good friend was in the Oct. DDC and her birthing necklace was beautiful. I love the idea of having "other mamas" who you have gotten 2 know over the 8 months be with you during labor.

Please count me in when its time!

Ha, I'm think I'm tired.....I posted in the wrong DDC. Although a bead swap sounds wonderful!

Please keep in mind that, in keeping with the DDC guidelines, all swaps must take place in MDC's swaps forum. Alternately, you can form an offline group, such as a yahoogroup, and have people PM you for the address.

I wanted to see the pics, but you can't unless you're a member of the group and get email updates from them and enable web access and a bunch of other hoo ha.

yay - my friend organized one for her ddc - and they were awesome. Id like to do it through a yahoo group, as I think thats easiest - and we'd all have access (cant access trading forums if you dont have so many posts). Does anyone want to organize this?

Yes, you are reading the dates right. The EDD hasnt been confirmed yet, it's based off of my LMP until I can get into my doctor's office.

Since I am in June's DDC too, I joined that bead swap. Would it be bad to join both?
