Hi,
I'm 29 and 26 weeks pregnant and recently became single, I also have an 11 year old. I have some lovely friends however they all have partners and their own families and are hardly free on evenings, a time when i feel incredibly lonely and upset. I live in south hetton. Wondered if their is anyone who is up for striking up a friendship? X

come along to the meet up section on the main boards and find our durham thread, we've been a bit lazy so it is still the 2014 thread.

are you a member of mums in Durham on Facebook? a lot of people on there socialise so might be worth a shot. I'd love to say I'll be your friend but I'm very busy at uni at the moment and don't even manage to see the friends I've got so i reckon I'd be a disappointment grin . you are more than welcome to join us on our next meet up though.

Thankyou I will do. That's the thing I'm a student nurse but after Sept will have to have a year out so feeling a bit gutted about my life choices, ha. Will check it out. Thanks again

ha, student midwife here, i feel your pain. don't worry about taking time out, plenty do. we've had 3 pregnancies out of my cohort of 20, one took 6 months, one a full year, both happily back. one still on mat leave. which uni are you at? are they being supportive?

I'm at teesside. Yeah I basically could choose Jan or sept cohort (I'm 1409) but as I'm due in Nov I have little choice than to choose a full year as the alternative is two months...even though I would happily bring baby in my satchel! I feel at a loss already! I will defo be back though, just need something to keep me busy!

yeah 2 months would be tough! don't sweat it, the year out will fly by and you can always stay on top of your reading if you feel like you need something more than a baby to keep you busy grin . At the end of the day nobody is going to care if you graduated in 2018 or 2017.

I know, thanks for the chat. Ive joined the Facebook group x

hope you find some people to hang out with, I'm in the last 6 months so kind of in hibernation. hope to see you on the meet up thread though, we are going to get planning our next curry and cocktails mn meet up session smile .
