Birth Buddies & Gift Exchange??

Hey ladies!! February is creeping up on us really fast, I was just wondering if any of you ladies were interested in doing Birth Buddies and/or Gift Exchange?

I personally think it would be lots of fun to do both, especially since we all seem like a tight knit group here. (:

So just leave a reply on:
Birth Buddies: Yes or No
Gift Exchange: Yes or No

Lets say if we get 6 for each we will have a Mod from another board help us set everything up! Sound good?

Gift exchange yes, Birth buddy no as I will update as events unfold. And we don't need a mod from another group. You just need 2 of us to get copies of people's info once people have been paired up so that if one person loses the info, gets sick, or whatever, you have a back up person. I did all that with my Dec '10 board and it was super easy. You just need to set up a thread with a questionnaire on it to have people PM back to you. Questions that the partner would need (like Edd, baby's gender/name, specific needs, nursery theme,etc). I am a mod for another board and can help if you want.There are some exchange guidelines that need posted too. I have access to the mod board and can post them later. Pretty sure we all need to be in our third tri first. And we need to vote on price too.

Really? When I was reading the rule thingys it said that it needed to be a mod, if that's not the case I would happily set this all up, post polls and what-not with someone else on the board since we need two people. (:

I can help since I already have super mod skillz. Lol. Usually at this point, boards already have mods. But because of the site changes the high ups got side tracked.
Does January even have mods yet??

Yes and yes! Did the exchange with DD, but not the buddy. Big mistake! Ended up in hospital for a week before she was born with no wifi. Oh the horror (and separation from outside world.)

Birth buddies just exchange contact info and then when one goes into labor/has the baby they keep the birth buddy updated and then the buddy comes and updates here Smile
