  • How far along are you?
    If you're far enough to have had an ultra sound, you could get a picture taken of you and your husband and then stick the ultra sound picture between you and make it a "family picture".
    Send them a card from a grandbaby (if a birthday is coming up, or just a "I'm thinking of you, grandparents" type of card)

  • Oops, it's actually on September 12th, this year! Cards should be available at your local store soon!

  • Would it be possible to ship them a box of "baby-stuff"? (ie- baby peas, baby carrots, baby-back ribs, baby roses w/ baby's breath. etc.) And then the note could say- what do all these things have in common w/ our family? Then they can have a celebration dinner on you as well!

  • I think a card from your lil one with a sonogram in it would be adorable!!

  • You could get one of those cards that allow you to record a message. Walmart even carries them now. And record the sound of a baby crying or cooing. Then send it from the baby. Or Send them a new camera even one of those you have developed toss kind. With a note saying they are going to need it on and your due date. If you are a scrapbooker you could make a card like someone said with in a different post with all the things like photos or clip art of baby things....

  • We took a picture of the positive home pregnancy test. We then sent it in an email to my in laws who lived in another state. We did not include any words. We knew pretty much exactly when they opened the photo. We received a very excited phone call.
