    Hi all,
    Just wondered if anyone feels at all nervous about going to Mum and baby groups on their own? None of my friends are pregnant, and i actually think its easier to go to things on your own anyway, but i am nervous! What if i don't make any nice mummy friends? What if i'm bored when i'm off, what if i can't find any good classes-it feels like going back to school! :shrug:

    You sound like a really lovely person, so I dont think you will have any problems at all! I just think lots of women will be in the same position as us, so I think it will be a case where we take a deep breath and walk through the door. Hopefully everyone will be lovely!!

    When I get to 30 weeks Im going to go to antenatal classes, and hopefully meet some women due around the same time as me.

    I plan to do Mommy and Baby classes and I will be alone too. :hugs: Since I plan to be home during the day with my son, this is how I want to get him social with other kids. I am also nervous about not meeting nice Moms or having nothing in common with them as I am quite outspoken and talkative at times but I think it will all work out and hey... worst case scenario, you get time to be active with your child and if the other woman are witches than they can kiss your butt. :haha:

    just think, if we are feeling like this, I bet other pregnant women are feeling this too. I dont have any pregnant friends either and it would be good too make a friend going through the same thing at the same time. We have a lot in common!! lol You will be fine hun xxxx

    I thought about this when I was pregnant with Sam too, but you end up meeting so many people with kids the same age through antenatal classes, at doctors appointments (I met 2 other mums in the waiting room when we had our 6 week check and our boys still all see each other every couple of weeks now :D), clinics etc. that you'll have no problem finding people to do things with. I did start going to a mum and baby group on my own too though, and everyone's so friendly - everyone else seems to be in the same position anyway and turns up not knowing anyone so it's easy to make friends :D x

    Thanks my lovelies, i think it's because it's all new! I have lots of lovely friends that iv'e met from all over my life-but with it being my first baby i don't know what to expect eek! I'm trying to find out where the local classess are but not having much luck.Hopefully i'll meet some peeps at antenatal, but with my hubby with me i magine it'll be more difficult for some reason!

    I am planning on going to mother and baby groups too but if there was mother and "bump" groups for pregnant women I proberley wouldnt go I dont know I know we all have something in common but id still be bit stuck for words. At least when the baby is here we will have our own little friend to go with lol and I find there is more to talk about once baby is here like the pregnancy, routines were in, feeding, what baby shops you like, what babys upto, future plans like nurserys etc and socialising the babys. I think when you have never meet some one before when you both have a baby there is just so much to talk about instead of the standard chit chat of where you live and your job etc which can be boring!
