I would like to join your meeting as well. My baby boy is 4 months old. Can someone send me the meeting details? Really looking forward to see you all.

Yep, "LGB" - the tea salon, Paris-style - sounds a super idea to me, for our 10 Oct, Saturday (2.30pm) get-together.
So, if you can make it on that date - and indeed, "the more the merrier" - please post or "re-mention" your interest on this main thread.
Here's a bit of info about this tea & cake place: LGB - About Us
And it's "reservable", too... solidstars, would you mind doing the honours and book for us, closer to the date, and once we figure out roughly how many we are? Thanks lots. (Have to pop off elsewhere soon.)
Have a great few days of fun festivities, plus, hopefully REST, everyone. Ta-la...
P.S. Have met / will meet a couple of peeps who can't make it on that particular Sat.

Just read your posts. I would like to join you girls on Oct 10th. My due date is next April, so quite awhile away but getting excited. Perhaps I could get some tips from all of you.

Hi Gem (and all pregnant mums)
about eating well, a really good book that was my 'bible' was "Nutrition for a Healthy Pregnancy" by Dr Elizabeth Somer. It covers your nutritional needs at every phase, from pre-conception to breastfeeding and trying for a second baby. Lots of handy tips on super foods to eat and how to organize your meals and meal prep. Reading the book helps put things in perspective about lots of old wives tales about what pregnant women should or should not eat. I ate lots of fruit & veg whilst pregnant, drank gallons of soy milk, exercised, had the occasional glass of wine, daily cups of coffee, exercised 2-3 times per week, walked up flights of stairs, and tried to get lots of sleep (in between working full time and changing jobs in my 3rd trimester!). Baby turned out really healthy. She hasn't had a day of sickness (touch wood!) and is almost 7 months now.

So we are maybe 5-6 in number, and probably plus a couple more who'd posted much earlier and who might like to "re-confirm" here for the 10th Oct, too.
BTW, from PM/email chats, please also add "reei" and her current-mom friend on to your 10th Oct list, and methinks that 'ssheng' may not be able to pop in on us that particular Saturday coz of hubby's B/day (understandable!), so we'll meet another day - next week - instead. So, overall, that's a +1.
Still on... The more the merrier.
Been reading, amongst other titles, "The Gift of Health: The Complete Pregnancy Diet for Your Baby's Wellness - From Birth Through Adulthood" by Karin B. Michels, and find it helps with tips on how to gain weight in the regulated, safe way through "nutrition-rich" foods. I started out slightly underweight and was gaining only very slowly at the beginning. (The book also deals with the reverse: preventing excessive weight gain.)
Lots in it about how our food and life habits not only influence our babies' health at birth but way afters too, when they're growing as kids and into adults. Interesting stuff - but wah... yeah, info overload :missingto
Thanks for the thoughtful pointers.

i just called LGB, apparently no reservations allowed for saturday/sundays... and 'no breaking the rules' for pregnant moms and moms/babies either.
Oh well, we can always walk in? They shouldn't be as crowded as other places anyways... We'll just all see each other there at 230!
