I am going to be a grandma, again. Younger stepdaughter is 4 weeks pregnant. Keeping the news to close family right now, but please cross your fingers that this one is a healthy pregnancy. Her last one ended in miscarriage. She is in Japan right now, so has no family but her husband for support. I am thinking about a pregnancy gift basket to send her. Any suggestions?

 *hugs* to her!

I'd send saltines, maybe some mint gum, cocoa butter, some fuzzy socks, maybe some books to read?

If this is her first, maybe some pregnancy books??? Or just some regular books :)

Maybe include some of her favorite foods, a bottle of lotion or massage oil so hubby can rub her back and legs later on. All I wanted when I was pregnant was sleep, so maybe some cozy jammies and a sleep mask??

I'm not much help, sorry.

Congrats! Books about what to expect during pregnancy or with a baby, maternity clothes, cocoa butter lotion, pickles (as a joke since "all pregnant women crave them"), some bath smell goods, comfy slippers

*crossing my fingers for a good outcome*,

American snack crackers and goodies for the nausea, like ginger cookies, lemon gum, peanut butter pretzels, mints, pregnancy & baby magazines, maternity T-shirts, I-tunes gift card for a pregnancy or baby app.

Or I would love one of those full wrap around me body pillows (Amazon has them); they look so awesome!

Congrats! I'd send comfort items since she's going to be exhausted soon. Not sure how easy this would be but a gift card for dinner do she won't have to cook (being in Japan may make that hard)

 Congrats! How sweet, I would send a few good books, foot lotion and some relaxing candles to burn. No doubt she is going to be nervous, so whatever calming things you can think of!
