That’s a thing now? Whatever happened to giving out candy/chocolate cigars?!

How about starting a journal from here until the birth?

@Quietserenity:  I would never do this. It seems kind of tempting fate to me. But I am superstitious. If you feel like doing it and it would make you feel better go for it. I would probably spend the time making freezer meals/cookie dough/bun dough that I can freeze and use in the first few mnths of baby being here. 

Good Luck!

@Quietserenity:  Have you considered some other craft projects? I’m not PG but I spend outrageous amounts of time crocheting and I find it really fulfilling and I love making things for myself and those around me. If you don’t know how, I could point you in the direction of some great online resources!

I’ve heard of candy bars and chocolate cigars and real cigars. But thats the extent. I needed something to pass the time when I was prego. I started my dd scrapbook,  its beautiful.  I worked on it a little every day. She’s 4 now and loves looking at it.

I saw this on Kelle Hampton’s blog.  I’m pretty sure coming to see my sweet little baby is favor enough!  LOL  As if pregnant ladies don’t have enough to worry about!

I think it’s very strange…

I’ve never heard of ths, but I don’t think it’s a bad idea. If I went to visit you, for any reason,  & you gave me a candy bar, I’d be psyched! :0) 

@Sea_bass‘s idea about using your energy to make freezer meals and cookie dough also sounds pretty good to me, though, and probably a good use of time.

@Quietserenity:  sounds like a cute idea, its the first i hear of this…if you really wanna do it, then go ahead…if i were to visit you and baby and come out of the hospital with some chocolate, I would love it 😉

I don’t think it is strange at all. If you have the time/money and want something to do then why not? I would never complain if I went to visit a friends baby at the hospital and got a little something while there. I would think it was so thoughtful, unneccesary but totally thoughtful. Making something like this will not effect the outcome of your babies birth whatsoever so do whatever is fun to you in the last few weeks.

I think this is another trend, like “push presents” and trash-the-dress sessions, invented so that women whose emotions are on high with their upcoming milestones will spend more money on crap they don’t need.

Great idea.  Maybe just a bowl of candy or cookies/cupcakes would be good.  I dont think it needs to be too extravagent.

Personally I wouldn’t do this.  Just enjoy your time before the little one comes

Go get a massage or a pedicure!  Time to pamper and focus on you before that focus shifts.  It is a nice gesture though, I admit I would be impressed if I came to visit.

Your not far from me!  You can channel your energy into organizing and cleaning my house.  I am in the exhaustion stage.
