Early pregnancy gift ideas

The best early pregnancy gift I received was the Mom-to-be 9 month charm bracelet. The box comes with a bracelet and 10 charms. Each month of your pregnancy, you add another charm on and the 10th charm is a little picture holder that you can put the new baby's picture in it. It's hard to find lately, but my mother in law bought mine in Marshalls.

The Belly Book

My sister sent me a diary for moms-to-be called the belly book; it has spaces for the ultrasound pics but also questions like: my mood swings are: totally justified considering how my back aches / non-existent: pregnacy has made me a Buddha (in spirit and size). Really nice for memories, educational and fun! My little sister is really the big one when it comes to babies!

Seat belt extenders

My daughter is a woman of size, it occurred to me that as she got larger her seat belt might get really hard to fasten. I found one that not only extends but attaches to the right side and kind of sticks up so it's easier to reach.
