    Well yesterday 17th Nov, i finally had the pleasure of meeting kim face to face. :D

    We have been talking on the forum since the start of pregnancy and both become quite good friends. We are both due on the same day which is great as we can compare bumps.
    We thought it would be nice if we could meet up and finally have a proper chat, and i really enjoyed it! (kim might have different views!!) :lol:
    We met at the Trafford centre with our partners (who also got on really well) we had some lunch, did a bit of shopping and just had a good old chin wag.

    I would recommend it to anyone, it was like meeting with a friend i had known for years, not awkward in any way.

    We are meeting up again in Feb after the babies are born, we live about 3 hours drive apart so we can't just nip out for a drink, but when we do meet it's good fun!! :D

    I would just like to add that I thought it was a really positive experience and wanted to let people know that it can work out meeting someone over the net. I feel like we've been mates for years and if it wasn't for the forum, we'd never have met. Our babies are due on the same day so I'm hoping they can be friends too. Has anyone else on here met up?

    i would love to meet up with someone but i dont know anyone who lives near me.

    unless people want to meet at Brighton. but that would have to be after the baby is born for me now. So if anyone wanted to meet up after the end of january in Brighton it would be great.

    Maybe we should set up a meeting board on the forum for those who want to arrange a get together?

    I can't drive but OH offered to take me.

    I was going to get the train or bus there but he booked the day off.
    Try and meet in a mutual place, somewhere in the middle, that way no one has to go miles out!!

    We made a date and stuck to it so that it would actually happen- we are definately going to do it again as it has brought us closer as friends in general.

    It's worth it if you can stick to your plans, and it gives you an excuse to get out!

    It's worth the journey, especially if you have been speaking for a while on the forum.
    Just nice to have a proper chat.
