Welcome!

If there isn't already a group then one will be created shortly for "due in August 2013" where you can meet other people due at the same time, look under the pregnancy forums.

All the best for your pregnancy!

Hi

Welcome to Essential Baby and congratulations on your pregnancy.

If you need general information to get to know the site feel free to check out the Site Information for more details on things such as:

* Abbreviations (I would print a copy out)
* Teach you how to make a signature
* Tell you about newsletters you can subscribe to (including
  a pregnancy one  - click here  to subscribe right now biggrin.gif )
* Has an events calendar you can check out.
* Directs you to areas of specific interest to you via a few  questions including the Due In Groups where you can chat with ladies who are due at the same time as you are.  Just pick the group that covers your month and post and introduce yourself it is a great way to share.

Let me know if I can help with anything on the site.

Kind regards

Ali
