I know that we do local “bee” meet-ups from time to time, but I wonder if people would want to arrange some get togethers with the preggo/new moms on WB?
I live in the Seattle area and I have seen a some ladies on the “babies” board who are in my area. Would any of you be intersted in doing a “preggo bee meet-up”?

It would be me and @TheFutureMcBride: hanging out in SW VA 🙂

I’d be up for it, as long as it’s not on a weeknight (late nights + pregnant = no bueno).

@jilian: So jealous.
I don’t think there’s anyone around me, but if there is, I would love to have a baby bee meet-up! I’ve never even been to regular wedding bee meet-up, so I’m a meet-up virgin. 🙂

@jilian: Yep, but that’s because we’re so awesome other bees can’t handle us.

@Sulli301:if you don’t mind me asking (pm me if you feel more comfortable) but where do you live? I’ve only known of one other bee that lived in northern michigan:)

I’m not preggo but I would love to come. I’m a few months away from TTC but I feel like I have more in commone with newlyweds or pregnant bees than engaged bees. A preggo or newlyweds meetup in Seattle would be great!
Would you like me to move this into the Seattle board? or do you want it to stay in Babies?

@yrret107: hmm. Even though most of the bees that have shown up to the last 2 meet-ups are newlyweds, not all newlyweds are as happy to chat about tracking temperatures, peeing every hour on the hour, and choosing childcare providers as those of us here might be. Maybe once we get enough responses here, we can divide the thread into a Seattle thread, a VA thread, etc ?
(That said, I’m not opposed to a Seattle Bee meet-up in the near future… just think they should be separate happenings.)

I thought about putting it in the “Seattle” board but then I thought “I don’t want to bother the engaged ladies with the baby talk” haha!
You are probably right that it’s a good idea 🙂
I think I am going to take charge and start a meet-up group. There was one in my area…but it has transferred to mainly just mom’s and there doesn’t seem to be very much activity anyone.
I would love to connect with local ladies who are preggo, or even newlyweds. I agree with you…once I was married I kinda felt a divide from some of my single friends. It would be nice to have newlyweds and preggo ladies…and mommies too. Just a bunch of “old married ladies” haha! 🙂
