    I'm at my mums for the night and taken advantage of her laptop being out and on (as I'm too lazy to turn ours on at home, I do all my PFing off my IPhone!) I've just been googling babygroups and activities in my local area, trying to find something to do to keep me entertained now and next year when little man comes!

    So far I've found

    Monday - a bumps and baby group in Uxbridge (which is a short tube journey away, only has steps at one end so need to get over that obstical!) between 1pm and 3pm.
    Tuesday - Buggy Fit Ruislip Lido. Can use the opportunity to get baby out in the fresh air and loose the tummy at the same time. Starts at 10.45am.
    Wednesdays - Baby belles, a local (ish) church ran group. I e-mailed the lady today and she got back to me instantly reccomending groups, prices and times etc! I've just e-mailed her back asking if she'd mind me popping down now, preggo to meet some of the mums.

    The brave bit is now and I want you all to make sure I do this!

    I was thinking about popping to the bumps and baby group this monday! I can be quite shy about meeting new people but I think because I've moved and don;t really know anyone it would be good to go? Maybe? It's not hugely local but it would mean me getting out the house for a couple of hours iykwim??

    What do you ladies think?? Also if the lady from the baby belles agree's I'd like to pop down there, again my shyness rears its head!!!

    Like you, I have just moved to this area and know no one, if I could find a group like that round here I would go! Will be lovely to meet people for once baby gets here so you can take them out together etc. You have to do it x

    I need to look up groups around here. The childrens centre where I did my NCT classes had loads of things to do but it's actually going. I was meant to go to a baby and bump meeting on Tuesday but ended up needing to see the mw so couldn't go x

    I went to the teenage mums group when I was pregnant with DS1 (10 years ago), and I just broke down crying they were all scummy mummys and I thought I was going to give birth and suddenly become Vicky Pollard, I didn't.

    You're brave going to them before baby's even here. I was told I should go the the breastfeeding cafe near me before the baby was born to talk to the mums.....errrrm no.

    I want to go to baby sign language classes but they're only for kids with speech and language problems at my local centre. I also want to find a nice baby massage class.
