What to get a first time mom during her pregnancy?

I hope this is where I should post it.
I need ideas what to get a good friend of mine during her first of probably a few pregnancies. I won't be doing it until I get back to work which she will probably be 10 - 12 weeks by the time the first paychecks come in.
Thanks!
Alisha

Good pregnancy and birth books?
The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth
Ina May's Guide to Childbirth
There's probably lots of great ones out there - those were just the first I could think of.

I'm really liking my Blanqi pregnancy support "camisole" thing. Smooths out the belly and back, and gives nice support for an aching back!

Ummm.... maternity clothing gift certificates?
If you want a baby gift, I LOVE my aiden and anais swaddlers.

I will check into the camisole thing. I was thinking about the gc for maternity clothes to.
Will look into the books.
Already know the baby gifts. Making most of them.

Just take her out for lunch and let her talk obsessively about the pregnancy and baby. Early on, most people aren't really that keen to talk about it (they can't see it, so it's not real yet, I think), but especially for the first, you want to talk!

Right now I wish someone would get me a pedicure or a massage. I'm so uncomfortable and tired. But I'm 33 weeks pregnant. GC for maternity clothes is a good idea. They're so expensive.

Great idea! A lunch date, followed by pedicures, maybe? Full of lots of baby talk. I'd love it if someone did that for me. But they can be kind of expensive.
