i bet the schooling is great with only 10 kids in a class, they will get so much 1 on 1 teaching...and im guessing a lot less chance of bullies etc. xx

It's only a couple of hours on the train! You could go down for the day, once per month, and maybe go for a long weekend once per month. I live inNewcastle, so used to do this to visit my best friend who lived down there.

I have a LO who is now 14 months, and I would say move to be with your family. I have relied on my parents so much without realising it. IfI've been out somewhere, I quite often just pop in so I'm notalone! Not so much now, but when she was little and I didn't have a clue what I was doing! Don't get me wrong - you do make new freinds at baby groups - in fact 2 of my closest friends are people I have met through our LOs - but would I leave my dd with them over night? No way! My mam is the only one I would be happy enough to leave my dd with.

ye i totally understand that, i dont know if id trust anyone up here to have my LO over night, but id trust my mum with my LO. im really worried about making new friends, i mean ive got some friends there but cause we have seen so little of each other ther past three years we all have separate lives now. i was round at my friends last night having a drink and out of nowhere she just said 'i dont want you to leave' and burst into tears, so i sat n sobbed with her for like half an hour. it made me realise just how precious my friends up here are to me xx

I actually don't know anybody who is pregnant at the moment. I knew a few who have LO under a year alright and I was asking them allsorts of questions during their pregnancy. Both of them were quite well and had easy pregnancys. I hope I would be that blessed.

Are you able to move to a cheaper area of london (assuming your family doesn't already)? That way you are near your family but can afford to TTC. I'm south of the river and that does make a difference to price.

I 'think' if it were me I'd probably move back to London. Obviously I've never been in your situation so I guess I don't really know what it's like but what I do know is once I had my lo my mum was of far greater importance and help to me than all my friends put together. Friends are great but once you have a lo things change drastically and you spend less time with them. Wherever you are once you have a lo you'll meet new friends through antinatal groups and new parent groups etc. But the support of your family (in my experience) is invaluable!

You may find that once your done having kids you feel like a change anyway so you could always go back to Middlesborough afterwards.

I hope you find a decision that you're happy with. But don't let it stress you either way!

Thank you so much for this...i just feel like im running out of time to make a decision, ive got to make one by may. but i deff have thought that i wouldnt be able to live without my mum when i had a LO. ive never really been scared of change before, i used to get quite excited about it, but now that i feel settled the change is terrifying me...

moving was always what i was going to do after uni, but the more settled i became the more unsure about my original decision i was xx

I live in south east london and there are some lovely areas such as Brockley, Forest Hill, Honor Oak, Crofton Park, Penge, Sydenham which are reasonably priced and are not far from central london. Definitely worth a look as a compromise between the two. You would still have to hop on a train to see your family but it would be much easier and of course you can meet up with them in the centre easily.
