I'm due on 13 July and I dont know anyone in this area who has had or is having a baby, i was hoping i might meet some people at my ante-natal classes but that didn't really seem to work. Starting to get a bit worried that i'll be spending the next year of maternity leave on my own, which is a bit daunting.

Jenna13 - Im not far from you, in Leeds. I've recently had my twins and currently on my maternity leave. I too went to ante natal classes hoping to meet a bump buddy, but didnt really get to talk to anyone. So if you ever want to talk babies - i am here! Do you know what you are having? I've had twin girls 5 weeks ago and they are a handful but very lovely.

Hello - I'm near you. Are you having your baby at Airedale? There are some good mother & baby classes/meet ups at Skipton Children's centre, perhaps you could go there when your baby arrives. I'll be going!

hi, yeh hoping to have the baby at airedale, although when i went for the stork walk they said that they often get full and have to close and you could end up anywhere which frightened me quite a bit. When are you due grumblinalong? def hoping to go to some of the stuff they do at the childrens centre, i think they do a coffee morning on mondays and i was thinking i might pop along to one of those sometime soon.

Jenna13 - I named my girls Vilia and Aurelia. They are lithuanian traditional names. Vilia is after a river which flows through the capital and Aurelia means a group of stars. Do you have a name in mind for your little girl?

there really pretty names, and unusal too so you dont have to worry about other baby's having the same name. were really struggling with names. i dont want to choose anything that is over popular but my dp doesn't seem to like any names that are a bit more unusal. how have you found the first few weeks?
