they're starting to arrive, so here's our 'Due in August' post natal thread. To talk poo, pee, burping and everything else, too...

Here's link to antd-natal thread for those we'll be waiting for

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone still look at this thread?

I don't have facebook.

Any plans for a Mumsnet reunion one year on???

Would be good to catch up and see how everyone is doing.

Ooh I haven't been on here for months and didn't realise it had fizzled.... feel a bit sad but I just couldn't keep up with both (FB easier on phone too). Is there anyone still around not on FB - Needles? Mumonabroom if you PM myself or sc0ttishlass we can add you to the FB group. AM now going to trawl the thread to catch up while wait for DS to wake up again (why IS crying for ages about being tired easier than going to sleep in a nice warm cosy bed? Answers on a postcard...)

Hi, only just found this thread! shock My DS2 born 21/8/12 and would love to join FB group please.

Ambi Thu 22-Nov-12 17:25:57

Not been on for ages and I see you're on FB, scottishlass, I'm going to PM you.

Alizzle Wed 14-Nov-12 19:40:54

I maybe being very stupid but I can't seem to send pm's. If it helps I'm on my phone.

sc0ttishlass Mon 12-Nov-12 16:41:00

Hi miaboo if you send me a private message with your fb name and what you look like I can add you to the group. It's private so nobody else sees, and very busy!! Xx

miaboo Sat 10-Nov-12 20:01:07

Hi, not been on here for ages but always on facebook! How do I join?

Lovemarmite Fri 02-Nov-12 20:20:23

Hi quickchat and ishop
The FB group is a private group and so no one can view the posts. I must admit I feel happier knowing no one can see things there. It would be great to see you on there x
You could always join under a different name or your mn name?
Hope you're doing well x

quickchat Fri 02-Nov-12 10:21:30

ishop im the same, I have my sister in laws snooping on my facebook so I won't bother joining everyone there! Shame you have all left.
Charlie is 9 weeks now and Im LOVING every minute. Managing the reflux with meds and he is a very good baby considering. He sleeps from 9.30pm (after a loooong cry down) until 4.30pm/5.30pm which is better than my other two done at this early stage. Very smiley and cute and I can't believe how well Im managing the 3 of them after all the fretting I done for 9 months!

My other two can stress me out much more than my new baby smile. Olivia is circling behind me moaning right now. I can never get on the computer when she is around!

Hope everyone else is doing ok. x

Hi tash yes I did, but am scared of posting too much lol! Wanted to say some things about returning to work etc but more limited in what I say with my real name wink

Loislane78 Sat 27-Oct-12 20:23:52

Hi Everyone, I'm not on FB any more so will say farewell on this thread (v sad sad).

Second mrsmiggins that I'm still learning every day but got loads of support and information (and giggles!) from everyone so thanks for getting me and LO safely through the first 10 wks with some sanity still intact smile.

Wishing everyone all the very best with their precious little bundles [flowers]

MrsMigginslovespies Fri 26-Oct-12 21:55:52

The people I met on here have kept me going for the last year through ivf and pregnancy. I really feel I've made proper new friends and it's been wonderful being able to share and talk about various experiences/questions/problems etc that we've all gone through. Good luck to those who aren't coming to fb. I'll still pop on here anyway smile x

MiniPopsMum2012 Fri 26-Oct-12 20:54:15

Ah, I'll still be checking MN every now and then smile

tigger8 Fri 26-Oct-12 07:24:33

Tee hee just re-read - FB not FBI!!!!!

tigger8 Fri 26-Oct-12 07:23:14

I am upset to see everyone leave! My baby is a little older than most if yours, so I didn't feel that I had much to contribute but I very much enjoyed finding out that everything I had been through was seemingly 'normal'! This felt like a 'safe place' to come unlike FBI.

tashaw28 Thu 25-Oct-12 22:19:54

ishop did you join facebook group in the end?

ishopthereforeiam Thu 25-Oct-12 17:24:17

I'll still be popping on here as well geekette but if you're leaving this thread too (?) then bon chance wine

geekette Thu 25-Oct-12 16:12:56

Just saying my goodbyes as I really have no interest in signing up to fb... you ladies have fun! And good luck to all the little ones!

hamncheese Wed 24-Oct-12 20:55:44

Ok thread. For any who have been missing and come to find this thread a bit desolate you can join the fb page anytime you like. Just send me a PM on here and I will add you. I will still be checking MN so even if its been a while feel free!! smile

ishopthereforeiam Mon 22-Oct-12 22:31:18

oops meant tash not signet doh!

ishopthereforeiam Mon 22-Oct-12 22:01:31

Thanks scottish have fb messaged signet so hopefully will be on the group soon. Well done with the bottle - we've (just about) managed to get little man to take expressed milk in a bottle but I have been trying to get him on formula so I can mixed feed...

sc0ttishlass Mon 22-Oct-12 12:05:22

Hi I shop, with fb only the person who you become friends with who then adds you to the group would see your profile, nobody else in the Facebook 'due in August' group would see anything...I'm not an expert but I wonder if then once added you can hide your profile from the person who adds you? Or If you de friend them once added maybe you can still be in the group, if you know what I mean?
Good weekend here weather was nice, Finn and I went to watch dh run in a cross country race so I used pram to full off reading capability smile spent some time struggling to get him to take expressed from a bottle, but think we have a break through.. Hoping not just a one off! Xx

ishopthereforeiam Mon 22-Oct-12 10:53:56

geekette i'm not on the fb one (yet), was a bit worried as anonymous etc.

so can everyone in the group see your wall, photos etc?

Alk ok here, second interview this week - a bit nervous as they want someone to start sooner than I'd hoped which would mean putting little man in nursery at just 4-5 months for a day a week sad

Did everyone have a lovely weekend?

The3Bears Mon 22-Oct-12 10:20:26

Just pm'd you ham grin

hamncheese Mon 22-Oct-12 08:22:25

Feel bad the thread is dying sad

Anyone else not on fb page should drop me a pm to be added, don't want to lose you!!
