    I just subscribed to your newsletter and I am already a fan on Facebook. I have one son who was born at 26 weeks, and I am now on bed rest with my second son for three months. I missed doing pregnancy fun stuff with my son because he came so early and was in the NICU for several months, and now I am on bed rest until this baby is born. I wanted to attend this event so badly and finally get to enjoy being pregnant. I would love to get more information about the products they have at the event, so I can feel like I attended w/o actually being there.
    I wanted to see the Petit Nest booth because I love their wooden tree, but it does not seem to be available yet.

    Allready liking you on Facebook!
    I really am interested in all of the seminars Meeting y’all of course, finding out what’s the latestand greatest from Kids USA, looking at the various nursery gropings that avaible (we have a limited opportunity up here in Northern MN) seeing what’s all of the fuss is about regaring the Diaper Dude and Born Free!
    I don’t pretend to know a whole lot about everyone featured, so I think this would be a great way to become informed, pass along first impressions, and allow Project Nursery and Big City Mom’s to enjoy truly what it’s like to introduce someone into the joys of being brought into the “know”
    I know there is alot of ladies who are chomping at the bit for this!
    I would cherish this experience-I spent my pregnancy in critical condition on Tube Feeding in the hospital and my husband was deployed to Iraq and still have not had a baby shower!
    It would be a blessing and a joy
    Thank You For Reading This

    Hi there, I just discovered Project Nursery from one of my one of my friends. We are both currently expecting, she’s having a little boy, and I have yet to find out what I am having. Coming up with ideas for the nursery has been a challenge, especially when this is both our second child. We would LOVE, I mean LOVE, to attend the Biggest Baby Shower! She would love to meet Jessica Alba and I so want to meet “The Guncles”, love watching them on “Tori & Dean.” (And Scout and I share the same last name!) Well, I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed that you pick me. Good luck!

  154. 154

    I would just love to be able to see all the new products. A few samples of Similac would be great since I just took in 1 month old virtual twin foster babies. I always wanted a Joovy Big Caboose. I guess it might be time to invest in one.
