Hi I've recently just joined Bubhub. I am originally from London and moved here with my husband in January 2016 (he's from Australia). I am 35 weeks pregnant with our first baby which is due in October. We're currently living in Melbourne and we're both working.
Neither of us particularly like Melbourne - haven't settled in here or made friends etc, so we have decided to try Sydney out and will move there in Feb next year.
Right now, I'm feeling ever more down about how to cope with a newborn without any family or friends. I know hormones probably has a huge part to play in it, but I'm just concerned that these feelings will get worse.
I've really struggled to integrate well here in Melbourne and I'm not sure why as I've moved around the UK a fair bit and always found it relatively easy to make friends.
So I guess what I'm asking is, are there any other ex-pat mums out there who are living in either Melbourne or Sydney that are in the same or similar boat who would like to meet up? It's so darn hard doing a pregnancy without any support and much as my husband has been wonderful, it's not the same and I miss the support of a group of female friends.
