Is there a way to organize a meet up? I saw someone in the Canadian thread posted about how to meet other mommies. I have a bunch of friends with babies, but they will all be back at work by the time I'm due.
It would be great to have some people to commiserate with, go for coffee with, go for a walk with, go to a mall with, find a local baby class together, and maybe even have some grown up conversation that doesn't revolve around babies even if the baby is right there...

My super all about me birth story:
Then: Fraternal twins born at 26 weeks in 1983. Me: 640 grams. Brother: 840 grams. Family kept watch in the NICU for 5 months before being allowed to go home. On oxygen for a year and a half after being released.
Now: Me: PhD student and married. Brother: Lawyer and married.
Dad's wedding speech: Thank you to all the family who stood watch and prayed for our children's survival. Well now the little scrawny chicken is married. Who would've thought? (Thanks dad for making me laugh and cry at the same time).
