First time Mums in London / South East due summer 2021
WingingIt2021 · 21/11/2020 06:06
I live in London and am wondering if there is anyone else in the London/Kent/Surrey area due around July 2021?
I'm a first time mum and so many of the Groups I've joined are mums who have done this before. This is so incredibly helpful to hear their past experiences, but it would be fab to meet some ladies who haven't been through it before as well.
Also, in a post covid world, it would be lovely to meet anyone local! ❤

Where in London are you? I’m also due end of June/start of July.
WingingIt2021 · 21/11/2020 18:34
Hey @TomatoSoup69 I'm over in East London! Congratulations on your pregnancy 🙂 where are you based?
July21Baby · 21/11/2020 19:03
I live in Kent and due early July 💗
TomatoSoup69 · 21/11/2020 19:09
@WingingIt2021 Thanks! Congratulations to you, too! How are you finding it so far?
I’m in North London.

Streatham here due end June, having the baby at St Thomas's! What about everybody else?
TomatoSoup69 · 21/11/2020 19:28
@Nesski St Thomas’ overlooks the Thames, right? Sounds good to me!
I’ll be at the Whittington, hopefully.
northerngal20 · 21/11/2020 19:59
hello! congrats everyone! i'm in north london, also at the whittington :) due at the end of june hopefully!
WingingIt2021 · 21/11/2020 20:32
Amazing to hear from you all!
@Nesski St Thomas is gorgeous! My friend works there, perfect location
Hi @July21Baby I'm on the Kent boarder about 15mins from Dartford
@TomatoSoup69 @northerngal20 that is awesome you're at the same hospital!
So lovely to hear from ladies nearby! How is everyone's journey so far?
July21Baby · 21/11/2020 20:45
@WingingIt2021 ah amazing. I’m literally 5 minutes from dartford
I’m 7+3 and Jesus the morning sickness is slowly killing me! God knows why they call it morning sickness when it lasts all day but I shouldn’t complain. So excited. How’s is yours going so far?xx
WingingIt2021 · 21/11/2020 20:50
@July21Baby ah awesome where exactly?! We are super close then!
Ahh you are right in the core of morning sickness too. I'm only 5+3 so not much. Had cramping and very mild nausea right at the start but that has passed. Nipples are starting to get a bit sore but not much else. But most people say 6 weeks is where it all goes downhill so definitely ready for it 😂😂😂
Meomeomeo · 21/11/2020 21:03
I’m south east london, due May 21 and having mine @st thomas
WingingIt2021 · 21/11/2020 21:06
@Meomeomeo I'm also South East London! Having mine at Greenwich Birthing Centre 😄 congratulations!
feistymumma · 21/11/2020 21:33
Hello all and congratulations!
Am due July 23rd, @WingingIt2021 didn't realise there was a birthing centre in Greenwich, I did a quick google and only saw the Lewisham one. If there is one I'm changing from QE to the birthing centre.
mrsstarmix · 21/11/2020 21:36
Congratulations to you all! I'm in East London and coming up to 8 weeks in my first pregnancy. Luckily no sickness but having bad indigestion. Anyone have any tips?
I've registered with Homerton but finding it strange I won't have my first apt until 13 weeks, but maybe that's normal ?
WingingIt2021 · 21/11/2020 21:37
Hey @feistymumma ahh no sorry that is the one in QE! It is called Greenwich birthing centre. Is that where you are having yours? That is where I'm having mine!! Small world hey 😆 the QE one is meant to be much nicer than Lewisham. If you did want a birthing centre not attached to a hospital there is one in Canary Wharf, it is called Barkentine and looks Lovely!
WingingIt2021 · 21/11/2020 21:39
@mrsstarmix hi! Homerton is meant to be really nice. You should have a booking appointment before your 12 week scan. Have you not had that apt though? Mine is in 2 weeks, when I'll be 7 weeks. It is an hour and a half!
For instgestion have you tried peppermint tea before bed?
Meomeomeo · 21/11/2020 21:40
Congratulations @WingingIt2021and everyone :)
spooner1 · 21/11/2020 21:44
Hi guys would love to join please...Im still very early and due end of July. I'm in Bromley, PRUH is my local
WingingIt2021 · 21/11/2020 21:48
Hi @spooner1 another South East London one, welcome. Hows the pregnancy so far?
olivetreemumtobe · 21/11/2020 21:51
I’m in Kent and due 1st July. First pregnancy and I’m so nervous about everything!
mrsstarmix · 21/11/2020 21:58
@WingingIt2021 - I just checked their website and they it looks like they'll be doing the booking apt and 1st scan at the same time as they're trying to reduce apts due to covid. I guess it will be a long day!
Greenwich birthing centre looks great!
I am loving peppermint tea, I'm prob eating the wrong foods too but really lost my apatite - had Pringles for dinner
Anyone have any cravings yet?
WingingIt2021 · 21/11/2020 22:08
@mrsstarmix ah okay. To be fair the first appointment is all form filling anyway I think so you're not missing out. Have you got a date for your scan? Mine is 14th Jan 😊 no cravings except wheatbix chocolate minis for breakfast every day. I cant get enough! How about you?
Do you liver quire near Homerton?
WingingIt2021 · 21/11/2020 22:08
@olivetreemumtobe I am the same, paranoid about sneezing in case it falls out 😂😂
Nesski · 21/11/2020 22:11
@WingingIt2021 this morning sickness is a killer, I can still eat and having actually liked puked. That feeling back when you used to go out, party too hard and need to get it all out at 3am, but constantly, worse when in evening! 9 weeks today so hopefully some respite coming up soon!
WingingIt2021 · 21/11/2020 22:17
Ah bless you @Nesski hopefully you're at the worst and it will get better from here! Im expecting it to start kicking in from next week when I get to 6 weeks 😬😬 have as much ginger as you can. Really hoping you feel better soon x
