Hi, I can't see any up to date antenatal threads for mums to be in Scotland, anyone want to join in this one? I think there are a few Scottish mums on the due in June thread, so I wondered if we should have our very own for all of this year's Scottish crop?

am very definately in scotland - am cold and wet enough to prove it!

due end of july and can drag a few others over here too!

sweetkitty Mon 10-Mar-08 15:33:19

hi I'm due in July and am in Scotland too have the webbed feet to prove it (when is this rain going to stop.

hi dizzy grin I'm stalking you

baiyu Mon 10-Mar-08 15:52:51

Hello! I'm in the Highlands and due in May, nice to see a few other cold wet souls from the North!

whinegums Mon 10-Mar-08 19:03:21

Yay!! Hello everyone.

I'm glad we're in the frozen north today, looking at storms in the south. I'm in Glasgow and a first timer to all these mum larks - alternating between being stupidly excited and scared witless. As we're all having summer babies (so far) let's hope they don't come with webbed feet!

Hi everyone!! I'm in Aberdeen and due in August with my first baby.

dizzydixies Mon 10-Mar-08 19:52:27

Hello!
I'm between Edinburgh and Glasgow and expecting no.3 in April- just less than 6 wks to go but am always late!

AM SO sick and tired of the rain. My two toddlers spent today doing 'gymnastics' on 2 duvets on my living room floor! I can't even face soft play ATM as am too tired to crawl around the place on my hands and knees after my dd!!!

Roll on April and better weather!!

HazieAndBaby Mon 10-Mar-08 19:56:34

Check you out dizzy with your list, disappointed at the non-alphabetical order tho, tut tut! wink I've added me now!

oh hazie - you always put me to shame!!

maybe I don't know my alphabet!!

expatinscotland Mon 10-Mar-08 20:13:55

I'm in Argyll and due no. 3 31 October/1 November depending on which calculator you use.

Have two DD's - one 4-year-old and one 2-year-old.

In our neck of the woods - Cowal Penninsula - both January and February past were officially the wettest on record.

HazieAndBaby Mon 10-Mar-08 20:15:04

Aww, don't worry, I don't know it most days either! My manager asked me last week if I was doing anything in April that would mean that I couldn't work a Saturday, as he was trying to work out our rota. I can hardly remember my name most days, let alone what the heck I'm supposed to be doing almost 4-8wks from now!!!

Oh crikey - added me to the list. I must have hit something when I first came into this thread that randomly sorted the posts and I was VERY confused. Anyway, it all seems to have sorted itself now and I'm getting it grin. Except I've posted the list again twice - oops!
