Copied and pasted from another DDC- loved the idea!

Here is the basic premise:

You get a volunteer to take a poll as to who all would like to participate. You count up how many want to, and then give the number to the girls of the due date club. Say we have 20 girls participating so we would all buy 20 beads. Every girl will buy 20 beads that are the exact same bead and mail them to the volunteer that is keeping track of everything with a self addressed and stamped envelope included with them. The job of the volunteer is to either make the bracelets or just organize the beads and mail them back to everyone to make their own bracelet/necklace/keychain.
Each person gets one bead from everyone that participated in order to have a reminder that we are all there for you during the time you deliver.

okay- I say we start the exchange in mid to late March since some ladies may go in April. I'm so excited about this! I think we should send a bag of beads to the person in charge with a self addressed- stamped envelope inside of the package as well to receive one of each bead back. Then we can make our own bracelets to fit our preferences. I wouldn't mind taking this on.

Are you planning to go to the post-office to see how many stamps we would need? I would hate to have one person in charge pay extra because we were ill-prepared...

We did this for my SIL's Mother's Blessing party and it was fantastic. We eached picked a bead that meant something to us, shared what it meant, and strung it on a leather bracelet for her to keep with her during labor. (I chose a Hamsa, a Jewish/Muslim blessing symbol). I made bead bracelets for all of the guests, so we could send her good thoughts when she was in labor.

It was great! I was so disappointed I couldn't do it for my sister, her MIL thought I was insane.

You guys should totally do it! If you are anything like my DDC, you are all going to be best friends by the third trimester.
