Hosting an online baby shower?

Some friends are giving our friend a little baby shower...online. She recently moved cross country, and her friends and family are scattered around the country. I am planning to set up a group Skype so people can see her open the presents we send. I am thinking she can take us on a tour of the new house/baby's room, but is there anything...showery we can do? I could send her some decorations, maybe order for cupcakes to be delivered? Some easy little games like guess how big around she is (do pregnant moms not like that one?) We aren't expecting a real party, but seems like something more than opening presents would be nice.

Is there a better group video service than Skype? I heard Skype isn't so good with more than 5 connections, but I don't know that any other service is any better. We may not have more than 5 anyhow, but my experience with video chat is that it's always awkward because it's hard not to talk over people.
What games could we play? I don't really like games at showers, but it seems in this case like 5 or 10 minutes of a game could liven things up, given how hard actual conversation might be.
