Hi all,

I'm living in Blackheath since March 2011 and recently found out that I'm pregnantsmile. I'm in my 11th week and my due date is in August. I'm Dutch, 32 years old and looking for other mums to be in the area!! I miss my friends in The Netherlands and my friends in London live quite far away and aren't pregnant;).

Also wondering if there is any pregnancy swimming in the area? Would love to join a class. I look forward to hearing from you!!

Hello! I moved to Blackheath in February 2011, and my duedate is in August too! I am 29 years and from Norway.

I am new to Mumsnet today, so not quite sure how things work, but I would love to meet up sometime - maybe you want to join me for pregnancy yoga?

What pregnancy yoga are you doing Mette? I live in Greenwich (have done for years) and am due in July. I have a 3.5yo dd too. smile

Hello! I am attending a class (just started) at Brandram Road Community Centre on Saturdays. Seems really nice - so hoping to meet people as I am still quite new to the area. Were you thinking of joining? smile

Saturday's aren't good for me. I'm looking for one in Greenwich I can walk to ideally. Might be nice to meet in the park when the warmer weather is here to stay.

Hi to you all,
I live in Blackheath too, pregnant with my first! Would be nice to meet other mums to be and get to know some people with babies who will be in the same age and area. I'm from Sweden and my partner is English.

I think there is other classes in Greenwich. I found mine just by googling.

Would any of you like to meet up some time? I am away from Sunday until Wednesday. But maybe next weekend?

Sounds nice to meet up, I'll be up for it! Next weekend my mum will be over to visit us for a week, so after the 7th March would be great. I'm available most of the time, some days daytime during the week, evenings after work or a weekend should be fine!

Mette82 Fri 24-Feb-12 09:29:58

What about Friday after work the 9th or on Saturday afternoon? Would that be ok? Place?

May2012 Fri 24-Feb-12 11:46:43

Friday could be fine, I'm not working that day so I'm available at any time.. Somewhere in Blackheath would be good, a soft drink in one of the pubs maybe if it's an evening?!

I'm also up for a walk in the park some time, I like walking and it would be nice to chat about babies.. and other stuff!! If anyone fancy?

Mette82 Fri 24-Feb-12 14:08:33

Great. What about 6-7ish? Princess of Wales? I am ok with anywhere. I will inbox you my phone number.

Mette82 Fri 24-Feb-12 14:09:43

Not actually sure how to inbox, so just let me know where and when and I will be there smile

May2012 Fri 24-Feb-12 16:09:33

That sounds fine, but pls let me know if there will be any changes. I'm not sure either how to send a pm, but I can try.. smile

Hi - I live in Greenwich too and am expecting my second one in Aug '12. I never managed to socialise/meetup mums before or after my first one (DS is 3 yrs old) but would love to try and do that now. If it's ok I would like to join you all when you meet up next if you can keep me posted.

Thanks
Vin
