I hope the mods dont move this as I just wanted to let you all know that I am gonig to begin organizing and start a thread for the Trimester Swap on Monday May 7th. At that time I will have all of those participants pm me their addresses and also submit a post to the thread of items within our $20 limit that they would like. It could be books,mama stuff, clothing, layette, nursing items, diapers, pail liners, bath wash etc etc anything for babe or mama within that $$$ limit. Then after all have posted their requested items then you will go through and pick someone you wish to give an item to and you will pm me with their username in turn I will give you their mailing address....Most of the time mamas in trimester swaps I have done remain anonymous until the reciepient recieves the package so like you wouldnt tell (and you dont have to at all I suppose) until the mama opened her card in her package....I think its more fun that way!<br><br>
If you ahve any questions etc please feel free to let me know!<br><br>
We can also do a Mama Only Swap (like yummy bath wash or body butters-stuff to make us feel pampered after delivery) closer to the EDD if you want OR we can do just another regular swap like this....

Yes, thank you very much for organizing. I'm hoping they don't move the thread either since I rarely remember to check in the swaps section.

I have pretty much NOTHING to offer. No baby stuff. I am starting over completely with this pregnancy. Though thinking about this, I may have one book and some hemp votive candles.

Ohh, I'm so excited for this! I love swaps.<br><br>
Gina, if I understand correctly...it can either be gently used or brand new items in this swap.<br><br>
I assume it will be on the swap board?

Yes items can be gently used or brand new.... I personally like shopping for a MDC mama but have both sent and recieved used items in past swaps....also it will be posted in swaps but I will let everyone know too.....

I had no idea there was a swap area even but I love celebrating together as we go along. It will mean so much to me after the spotting and such to get to the 2nd Trimester and I know others have angels and it means a lot to them too. Sounds wonderful! I hope I do not miss those posts!

YOu can just pick who you want and if they have already been chosen I can match you up. OR we can draw names if everyone wants to.I dont care either way.
