    Catch up!

    sea princess, pondering and kehk

    I'd also love to meet up! We have not told anyone - well, one friend in the US, to whom I sent a photo of the positive home pregnancy test b/c I thought I was dreaming when I saw the line! - and it would be good to get together and talk about everything. I'm feeling excited and anxious. Dad-to-be doesn't want to get hopes up it till we're past the 12 week period...

    I'm free the week after the 17th April (other than some pre-natal yoga classes I've lined up :) ) for a catch up in Central or elsewhere
    Looking forward to meeting you!

    Yay! I'm free most days (except Fridays) - week after 17th would be good as my mother in law will be here and, no doubt, she'll want to spend 24-7 with my son so I won't feel guilty leaving him at home! :P

    Congratulations to all the ladies in this thread!

    ANGO- Do you have a particular reason to be concerned that your pregnancy isn't safe? Is this your first baby?

    sea_greeny-How about you? First child?

    PurpleFlower-Nice to meet another second-time mom due in November. Well, I don't know if I'm due in Nov. for sure but I'm guessing it will be about the same as my first child. I fell pregnant with him approximately a week earlier in March 2 years ago and he was born at the end of Nov.

    seaprincess-Yay! Another second-time mom. My son is in school too so I am glad we're having another baby now, rather than earlier--that would be too much!

    KeHK-We haven't really told our families either. We decided we would tell the people we are close with (best friends etc.). Telling family is always an awkward thing for us. It's so much easier to tell friends it seems.

    Just keep me posted on a meeting for the week after April 17. Sounds good!

    Hi everybody

    Great to see that there are so many ladies with a similar due date!
    I'm not working, so I'm free most days. Yeah, those first few weeks are quite special. I can't wait until I reach the end of the 12 weeks period.

    Sea_greeny: Can I ask where you're taking pre-natal yoga classes? I'm also looking to join a class, either pilates or yoga.

    Looking forward to meeting you all in about 2-3 weeks time!

    Started a new thread, but this one seems to be the one where all is happening!
    I am due mid November with second bub.
    Very exciting, but also a bit nerve wracking until the first untrasound shows everything is a-ok!

    Pondering: It's our first! I'm actually just really happy to know that we can make babies, even though we're not through the 12 week period yet. At least I now know we both 'work' together in that way :)

    KeHK: I shopped around a bit for my yoga classes as I only arrived in HK 7 weeks ago (yes, funny timing that, given I am six weeks pregnant), and really wanted to start doing yoga regularly. I checked out Pure Yoga (Central), Planet Yoga (Central) and the Yoga Room (Sheung Wan). Finding out I was pregnant made the decision easier, as the Yoga Room offers the most pre-natal classes per week (that I could find, anyway) - three in total: Saturday midday, Tuesday late morning and Thursday night (ie tonight, if you want to come along). Plus the prices were a lot cheaper: I paid $3088 for 12 months (actually for 6 months, with 6 months free) and no joining fee, compared with Pure, for example, which was $11,156 for the same period ($500 joining and $888 per month). Plus I felt the Yoga room suited me more - it's smaller, more intimate, and not so... competitive (?). When I went to my first class last week, they were just finishing up the mums and bubs class - I thought "Yikes! Not quite at that stage yet!" :)

    catch up

    Hi Everyone!
    Well it's nice to know there is a few of us in the same boat - nervously awaiting the first 12 weeks! Some first time mums, some second time. Any third time mums joining us?

    Let's propose some dates and venues and see where we are all placed shall we?

    I was thinking Thursday 22nd April or Friday 23rd April? Either dates work for me, how are they with everyone else? Morning from 10:30-12 noon or afternoon from 2:30-4pm?

    As for venue, Central or Admiralty?

    Admiralty - Only place in admiralty I can think of is Great - in the cafe there? Probably could get a table at either of the times? I'm not sure if there's other choices at Pac Place, anything on the ground floor there, only eaten there for dinner before a movie?

    Anyone have any idea's/requests for Central? If it's morning tea or afternoon tea, it would work well as out of peak office hour lunch rush? Could do the Mandarin oriental, always nice for a tea, although expensive! Other ideas welcome, drawing a blank,must be the hormones!

    Hello again!

    Hey! I'm actually a pilates instructor...! =P If any of you guys would like to get a small group together, I'm more than happy to get that going! ;P

    As for meeting up, I'm good with Thursday 22nd, pref 2.30-4pm but morning is also ok. Central or Admiralty are both fine. One place we often went to with my first bub's due date club was Pizza Express in Central or Jaspas in Soho? =)
