Congrats! Those day by day pregnancy journals are always nice, and some belly oil to prevent stretch marks.

I like breastfeeding books like "so that's what they're for' or whatever its called. Anything to get a new mom to be thinking about breastfeeding without being too pushy. Also some cocoa butter lotion for her belly and something to help with m/s.
My mom likes ginger tea and peppermints but both made me gag while pg. LOL
What worked for you? Give her some!
Congrats!!

Well, I guess it depends on what your sister likes or is interested in.
*Pregnancy Tea (available at most health food stores)
* A great pregnancy book that has a day by day or week by week calendar (not "What to Expect...." its not a very good one)
*A certificate for a nice massage (thats something I always wanted)
* A gift certificate to a store like Carter's or Babies R Us. That way she can buy a few things if she gets the urge before baby shower time arrives.
* A gift certificate to Motherhood Maternity. Chances are she will want to pick out her own maternity clothes.

Congratulations on the big news! How exciting!

Re: Good gift for a newly pregnant mom???

I absolutely LOVED Jenny McCarthy's Belly Laughs book. I was reading it while trying to get pregnant with my daughter and had this urge to test quick. We had friends over. I ran off to the bathroom and tested, dark positive lol I laughed so hard to that entire book and still do. It is the best!

Yeah. this sounds like a great gift basket, plus maybe a stretch mark lotion set? motherlove.com has some nice ones that aren't too expensive. www.motherlove.com
