A massage would be really nice, but maybe something to help her prepare – the book “What to Expect When Expecting” is a great coverall for everything, but also a note just letting her know that it’s ok and you ARE going to be there for her, and that you’re excited to be an Aunt! Turning it around to be a positive will be helpful for her to hear. The last thing she wants to hear is negativity, especially since she’s so scared.

Good luck and hope everything turns out ok!

I agree – start with a “expecting” book.  If you can afford it I would offer to buy a crib – or a car seat.

yes you can drink coffee haha πŸ™‚ its just way better to drink decaf. They say if your going to drink caffeinated no more than 1 or 2 cups a day.

Yes – she should just stay away from drinking a ton of caffeine. The expecting book will have a few different things that she can stay away from to make sure she has a healthy baby!

She should also start a pre-natal vitamin! For now, a multi-vitamin will do, but she will eventually want to get on a pre-natal for her baby’s health.

They have day by day or week by week pregnancy journals that tell you what is going on inside and give you a space to write down how you feel, changes, thoughts.  It could help since this sounds like it is a bit of a surprise that she may want to work though her feelings/thoughts.

All great ideas for gifts… but I think the very most important thing will be your support! Being her shoulder to cry/worry on, asking her how she’s doing, if she needs someone to go to doc appointments, etc. And just generally being excited about this. I’m sure she is scared and your parents will probably be scared for her too… so having you as her cheerleader telling her that this is WONDERFUL and she can do it will probably be the best possible thing πŸ™‚
