    Maybe they will put on extra classes.

    I found that after the first class. the numbers dropped so maybe you could join in a bit later.

    There seems to be a massive baby boom here during the months of April and May next year. I am asuming that they will have the same probs when it comes to there classes. xxx

    ive just back from dr as i took my form down to get onto the parent classes, i hope there not fully booked too :shock:

    i recon they should put some more classes on, surely it cant be that hard, im only going in hope of meeting other mums too.

    G3M how did your 25 week appointment go? I dont get one :(
