i'm throwing a baby shower for 7 women at one time! help!

ok...dh was supposed to be the squad leader of the 7 pregnant females in his unit, but he finally got a hard copy of orders to deploy. before he got the orders, HE was supposed to be in charge of throwing them a baby shower! lmao, yeah right! 

anyway, his nco asked him if I would be willing to plan and coordinate the shower, and i agreed...most of the girls are having their babies in october and november, so i'll probably throw the shower the last week of september.


right now, i'm not really sure where to start and decided i'd come on here for help! afterall, i have thousands of women at my beck and call! lol, just kidding. but seriously. 

i need ideas for games, giveaways, etc. i know for sure i want to do that game where you guess what candy bar is in the diaper, and i have old diapers that don't fit dd anymore...and i've heard about some kind of toilet paper game where you guess how many squares it takes to wrap their belly...but i need more ideas for games, along with giveaways for the winners of the games...


thing is, i've NEVER had a baby shower...i've been to one, but it was right after my miscarriage, and that whole week is a complete blur in my mind, so i can't remember anything we did!


any suggestions would be awesome! TIA!

you could play guess the birth weight. like you have everyone guess how much the baby (or babies ) will be, everyone pays a dollar or two per guess and the one that comes closest wins the pot. (after the baby is born.)

well, from what i understand, it will just be the pregnant females and other females within the company/unit. i think only one girl has any family near here, but dh said they plan to keep this more of a "private army thing" is what he said....lol. so the most i have to plan for is about 15 people total, including my son and i. but yeah, the hormones should be awesome...

and i don't know what to bring to eat! maybe a big jar of pickles, a tub of icecream and some ketchup? lmao!

Baby bingo (like reg bingo but with baby items) like a pp said google is your friend use it.
Food:cake, chips,pretzels, maybe a fruit/veggie tray. Drinks.
As for giveaways candles, picture frames, cute bracelets, gift cards, potted plants. Or you could make up little grab bags with fun stuff in them. Gl thats a lot of preggos
