You could get her “Girlfriend’s Guide to Pregnancy” which is a really funny eye-opening book.

A handmade blanket is always nice! I like to make them for the little ones, but I use fun, soft fabrics with stuff like baseballs, ballet dancers, and so on.

Something thoughtful would be a gift certificate for a massage or pedicure– it might make her feel better on a rough day.

A bella band?  That’s what I got my Maid/Matron of Honor when she got pregnant and she loved it. 😀 Not sure if it’s “fun” but definitely fashionable/practical!

@ Joonbee.. I was going to say that, but couldn’t think of the name!  lol  I would say that, or a nice basket you could put together that has stuff she can use to relax and feel pretty!

I’ve recently gotten into getting the mom-to-be gifts that focus on her.  She’ll get plenty of gifts for the baby.  As Stewie said, massages or pedis are great gifts in early pregnancy.  Something that I’ve given moms to be further along in their pregnancy is stuff to make them comfortable immediately after giving birth i.e., comfy pajamas (either official “nursing pajamas” or pajamas with a loose waist and easy nursing access), the cream you rub on your breasts when they get sore from nursing, etc.  That has always been a big hit!

I agree w/Mrs. DG!  I had that book and it was hilarious!  Also get her “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” gives an insightful week by week look at pregnancy and what’s going on.

Or – if you don’t wnat to give a gift certificate – a personal foot bath/spa is a good alternative!

Definitely the BellaBand…or those cute Babylegs (baby legwarmers). They have ones that are not gender-specific if it’s still a surprise.

I made a “pregnancy survival kit” for my Future Sister-In-Law.  cocoa butter, aspirin, a fun personalized shirt, a “license to eat,” etc.  it was fun to make and she thought it was cute!  I also sent flowers to her work.  She HAD announced it before this though 🙂

Just so it’s out there… asprin is a no-no for pregnant women.  Tylenol is ok, but asprin and ibuprofen are out.

Yes; & also so people know; a lot of doctors discourage massages when pregnant. I know some woman who still do; but many will not because they’re doctors say not to.

something to pamper her…gift cert for mani/pedi (especially since she probably wont be able to reach her feet soon) or to get her hair done…something to make her feel pretty
