Hi all,    
Just wondering if there is a Facebook group for the mums DIG 16-30 September?

Would anyone be interested in creating / joining a private Facebook group for bubs due in September 12?

Is there one? Is that why the 16 - 30 Sept DIG is so quiet?

I've been a bit quiet on facebook lately, (as I haven't wanted to let out this pregnancy but know I will if I'm on there).

Planning on outing myself in a week or so...happy to join up if there is one.

If someone is going to make one why not just make it a EB Due in September 2012 group altogether?

If the groups are slowing down then I'm sure Ali (mod) would be happy to recombine the Chat threads into one again. It was quite busy at the start of group. Eventually when we move to the parents area we end up in one group anyway.

I'm happy to a make a secret group if no one already has?

Any ideas for a name? EB Sept 2012 babies?

That name sounds fine!! Also I agree with the combining the groups, like you said, they combine them after the bubs are born anyway! Maybe check in the 1 to 15 group for objections first though!

I think combining the groups is a great idea, I'm due the 19th but it'll be a repeat c/s before the 15th original.gif

the 16-30th group is the slowest moving pregnancy group i've ever posted in original.gif

I think a September private FB group is a great idea- I spend heaps of time on there anyway and it's a more immediate style of interaction I find. (plus I have been one of the slackers who has only posted once or twice...)

I've started a group. Just PM here on EB with your facebook name and I will add you.

I'd prefer to keep facebook names off EB for privacy reasons but happy to use the PM system so we both know who is adding who.

Obviously it's a great way to stay in touch and post pictures etc. but lets not forget those who choose to not use FB or do not wish to be added and still use the EB chat threads too.

Also I have PM Ali regarding the joining of the groups (as she is the one to make the decision anyway) and have posted something in the 1-15 chat thread.

Apologies if I have stepped on anyones toes jumping in on here but it's the first time I have had any energy in months so I'm running with it.

Having trouble adding and finding everyone because of so many people with the same name. When you PM could you either send your FB email address as well so I can search that way or some details that would make it easier for me to find you.

Because I have made the group a secret privacy settings I can only add friends so you will need to accept me as a friend first and then I will add you to the group.
