Thought would update all the lovely posters who helped us shop for pregnant dil.

So got her 3 nice linen pairs of pjs for post baby as well as 3 snuggly maternity ones for now. Also sick slippers.

A thermos for night feeding and 3. Box sets of DVDs she hasn't got and like.

A spa voucher for next spring for her and ds or a friend.

A pretty bracelet and massage oils.

A big pretty bag for hospital stay with soap and glory goodies in it.

Aibu to hope she likes it? grin hope so she's a sweetie.

Mine didn't get me anything when pregnant (or after!)

MissingPanda Tue 22-Dec-15 18:39:26

No I want to be your dil!! Mine appears not to 'do' babies, children or family for that matter. You sound brilliant. X

Wow, how lovely are you, OP! I think I might need to tell OH's DM she needs to up her MIL game after reading that winkgrin.

londonrach Tue 22-Dec-15 18:53:16

Why have you posted on AIBU? wink

Sounds lovely

PrincessMouse Tue 22-Dec-15 19:14:57

You are amazing. She's a very lucky DIL. flowers star

Youarentkiddingme Tue 22-Dec-15 19:20:10

How olds your other ds? wink

Sounds lovely. It's so refreshing to read how mothers of sons are treating dil well - it offsets all the ones from the dil about their DH mother!

WyrdByrd Tue 22-Dec-15 19:22:16

Lucky woman - I hope she appreciates you!

minininipie Tue 22-Dec-15 19:26:00

That sounds very thoughtful. I'm sure your dil will love the gifts. She must be lovely and so must you!

BifsWif Tue 22-Dec-15 19:26:06

They all sound like wonderful, thoughtful gifts. She'll love them I'm sure! smile

LillyBugg Tue 22-Dec-15 19:27:12

This is so thoughtful. The perfect present. Well done!

Hormonal1 Tue 22-Dec-15 19:27:31

Can I swap you with my Mother in Law please? grin

shinynewusername Tue 22-Dec-15 19:28:07

To be fair, sick slippers would be appropriate for early motherhood.

Fluffyears Tue 22-Dec-15 19:28:08
