@APerfectSonnet913:  What a sweet gift idea. 🙂 I’m about 10 weeks behind your SIL so things that I would want probably won’t all apply to her, but I’ll just throw out some ideas for you. Hope some of this helps!

Stretch mark cream, red raspberry leaf tea, candles, bubble bath (baths feel SOO good right now with an aching belly even if they can’t be too hot!!), fancy chocolate or cookies for a treat….and I ran out of ideas. 🙂

Izzy (sparkling juice), dark chocolate, papaya digestive enzyme (the best thing ever in pregnancy), larabars.  (I use only natural/ organic products, so I personally would not use a product unless they knew to look for something on those lines.)  For larger things?  A foot massager!  (One you dont have to reach 🙂

I’d be careful with anything heavily scented.  Normally, I love perfume and candles every day of my life — except when I’m pregnant, in which even the wrong smelling shampoo can make me nauseous.  Not just the first trimester either, the whole time.  

@cbee – What is the papaya digestive enzyme?

@stuckinwonderland:  It is a digestive enzyme:

It helps with morning sickness, heartburn, acid reflux- it has really helped me digest- the whole pregnancy I have felt like my stomach was stapled.  Plus it tastes good!

@cbee:  huh.  This is my third pregnancy and I’ve never heard of that.  I may need to pick some of that stuff up… i’m 28 weeks, but I still have morning sickness, and of course, heartburn that’s starting to increase.  Thanks for the tip!

If it’s for her baby shower I would think of after the baby is born, hemroid pads (gross but I’d love to not have do the walk of shame up to the register) hahaha, leaky nipple pads, a coupon for a house cleaner/maid, pretty nursing PJ’s… Starbucks card since I’m dying for a frapaccino!! Lol 

Great idea btw!!

Nursing bras/tanks, gift card for a pedicure or prenatal massage or a restaurant she likes, compression stockings (for swelling), maybe maternity photo prints or a photo gift like that?

Honestly… pedicure, massage, cleaning lady coupon, frozen meals for after delivery. 34 weeks on mon and I can’t reach my feet to do a pedicure by myself. Something that will pamper her when she’s feeling huge and miserable.

I’m 30 weeks!

 

Careful with bubble baths and candles… right now I’m so picky with smells and they’re often overwhelming.

Decaf iced tea mix is a big thing I love right now with warm weather coming and not being able to have iced tea… lipton makes a good one.

Chocolate!!! And something salty??  Cravings get crazy again in 3rd month.

BIG time agreeing on prenatal massage!!!!

Maybe one of those baby cds with music she can play for the baby while in womb… they can hear now and it’s a big interest of mine.

Groupon has those house cleaning deals sometimes. I’d love that right before baby comes so I know I”m coming home to a clean house!!!

Big comfy pjs or something to come home from hospital in

I want a robe to wear (one that would fit now and after the baby comes), a cute nursing tank, pedicure, candles, lotion, and/or music.
