1st trimester kit

637 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Mimi37
My friend is trying for baby #2 right now, and I thought it would be fun to send her a little 1st trimester kit once I get her news. I didn't realize how knock-you-on-your-butt the first trimester was til I was in it! I was thinking so far (she's fairly mainstream):

Paper plates, cups, silverware
GC to out to eat somewhere
Preggo pops

Any other ideas?

What about a book or two on pregnancy/babies for child #1? Or some energy snacks, like luna bars or trail mix? Or a collection of your favorite quick and easy meal recipes? I think the ideas you have so far or great!
-- maybe lemons (for morning sickness)?
-- decaf tea if she's a tea drinker?
-- lavender eye pillow? (ahh)
-- a nice journal if she's the type to keep a pregnancy journal in longhand? (I keep mine on the computer or else I'd never do it!)
-- maybe popsicle molds if it's summer time (to freeze juice or smoothies, yummm)
-- some kind of nice moisturizer for those random dry itchy spots (or a vain attempt to avoid stretch marks, hah!)

How funny that it's hard for me to remember the 1st trimester already! This is a really sweet idea.
Good idea! I like those. I looked all over for a pregnancy journal that I liked at first, and I finally found one but it's just plain. A pregnancy journal is a good idea, and she'd probly like the kind with the stuff about doctor appointments, etc, in them, lol, those were totally a turn off to me.

Snacks and tea, good idea also. I loved peppermint and peach tea in my first trimester! And I like the popsicle maker thing also, as she likely will be pg in the summer.

Okay, here's what I'm thinking now~~

Pregnancy journal
Paper plates, cups, silverware, etc
GC to Dariy Queen that they have right down the road
Burt's bees lotion and maybe bubble bath
A bar of soap (I make them
A 'big sister' book for her little one
Luna bars
Popsicle molds
Maybe a nice tea mug

Good deal
