    Default Wanting to connect with older mums or mums to be in the Gong!

    Hi everyone!

    My name is Katelyn, and I have only just recently moved from Melbourne to Unanderra. I am 37 years old and am expecting my first child in January 2012 (is our second attempt).

    I am really keen to connect with other mums and mums to be who live in the Gong or surrounding areas as I am excited about meeting new people and making friends - other than my immediate in laws, I don't know a soul.

    I am looking forward to hearing from anyone who is keen to chat and share advice.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Katelyn

    Hi Kaz

    Thankyou for your reply!

    So far am enjoying the Gong - am loving the warmer weather - I cannot believe it is winter here and the sun is always shining. Am quite happy to leave the Melbourne cold behind thats for sure...

    Hope all is going well with your pregnancy (our first attempt was through IVF, unfortunately suffered a miscarriage and then fell pregnant naturally by mistake?!).

    I look forward to meeting some Illawarra mums....thanks again for your post.

    Katelyn

    Hello Katelyn,

    I'm an older mom (yes, I'm from the US) living in Mt. Pleasant. I have a 4 1/2 girl and 2 month old boy, as well as a much older daughter and am still interested in other ways of meeting mums in the area.

    I'm so happy to hear that you have a sticky little one! Congrats!

    Jennifer

    Default Hi Jennifer!

    Thanks for replying to my post! Lovely to hear from you! As you know I am still very new to the area, and love making new friends, so stay in touch! I do yoga and pilates and have found thats a great way to meet people as well. I am thinking that if I get enough people together/interested, I would be happy to organise an informal catch up with a small group - what do you think?

    I'm not too familiar with Mount Pleasant - how far is it from the Gong? How long have you been in the area for?

    Look forward to hearing from you!

    Katelyn

    Katelyn,

    With no traffic, I'm 5 minutes out. If I get stuck at the Mt. Ousley roundabout, it might take 10! I've been here for almost 6 years now. As I've only worked from home and have spent a lot of time with my kids, it's been difficult to meet a lot of people.

    I'd love to meet up if people are around and up for it. Any neighborhood playground would be perfect for us, as my 4 1/2 year old daughter would probably need something to do whilst we all chat.

    Thanks for responding!

    Jennifer

    Default Hi Jennifer!

    Hey there

    You live in a lovely part of the world! I must say I love the warrmer climate here in the Illawarra, and love being closer to the water as well....

    Stay in touch as I am always keen to meet new people, especially as I know very few people here! It was hard moving here from Melbourne as I lived there for 10 years and left behind some really close friendships, and now that I am having a baby, I feel that gap even more.

    Let me know if you are keen to catch up, as there is someone else I have had contact me on Bub Hub with a 2 year old, who would love to meet new people as well....what do you think?

    Look forward to chatting soon....Katelyn

    Hi ladies, looks like it has been a while since anyone posted on here. I'm almost 36 and expecting my 2nd (and maybe 3rd if it's twins) on 29th August 2012. I have lived in Wollongong for 7 years now. What Ob are you all going with or are you going public hospital? Does anyone know of any great pediatricians in Wollongong area? My other kids are DD 15, DSD 14, DSD 10 and DSS 8. I live in west Wollongong
