Hi everyone!  

It's so much easier if I can keep all this in one place as it is quite hard keeping track and having to keep scrolling back and forward in the threads to make sure I don't miss anyone!  I don't want to leave anyone out so if anyone who is a new comer or hasn't been added to the list can please add their details in this thread, that would be so wonderful.

The list will be posted on the first page (if I can catch a first page post! LOL) of each chat thread, so that we can keep track of each other.  Once we have gender scans etc, I will add that info as well (if you are finding out/sharing sex of your bub).

Please tell us:

Estimated Due date:
Baby #
DS/DD ages (if you have other children of course)
Will you be finding out the sex of bub?

If there is anything you feel uncomfortable sharing, please don't feel you have to.  biggrin.gif

Congrats Mindi81!  You are due the day before me! :-)  I will update the list tonight.  You can see it on the first page of the "Wow! Kicking off August" thread at the moment, but once the moderator opens a chat thread I will copy it in to there.

Thanks living_bravely- big congrats to you also, funny if we both go on the same day  wink.gif
princess_Meli- Congrats on your BFP!! and wow, that is uncanny! It sure is a small world original.gif
Congrats Miss Petal, Mrs Mumma and ChickyMumma, Saitress and Charlotte- we seem to have such a great group and looking forward to sharing our pregnancy journeys original.gif
Yes Charlotte, it is scary finding out so early- with my boys I found out late, so didn't have the worry of getting to 12 weeks. I think it is normal to be worried, but luckily the odds are in our favour and here's hoping for a happy, healthy pregnancy for all of us.

Hi!  And welcome all the new comers!  

I have updated the list in the chat thread. :-)  If you are unsure of dates or haven't given me one as yet, I have just popped you at the bottom and as soon as you know and update us, I will add you to the correct date.

If you notice any mistakes let me know (I'm only human so bound to make some!)  Thanks for posting in here as well.  Makes it so much easier for me as it is very time consuming going back through all the different threads and hoping I don't miss anyone! LOL!  

Chow for now lovely ladies!   bbighug.gif
