Kate, yes maybe a bit of baby free time is a good idea, Finlay can have a couple of hours with daddy too.

I was going to text you and Jen to see if you wanted to meet up again with babies but the abs on my car is playing up so I don't fancy driving it to Leicester, locally I don't mind but not sure I trust it at 70 miles an hour! Maybe when it's fixed we can sort out another meet up? Taking the car to the garage tomorrow for the third time and I'm really hoping it can be fixed this time.

Hello to all the ladies in the East midlands. Is there still a desire to meet up? The reason I ask is that on sunday I sat and had a lovely cup of tea in the Nottingham Knight pub, the only problem was I was on my own as no-one else turned up. I am therefore reluctant to set another date for January just yet and I thought I would see if there are any ladies who would still like to meet up and talk face-to-face. If the day of the week/venue is the problem I am more than happy to organise a meet at a different time/place. I really enjoy meeting you ladies and sharing experiences and would be very sad to see this group no longer meeting. I await your responses!! :)

Hi Millievanila88. Cloudyrain who is the local group leader has disappeared from the boards for some reason and so I organised a couple of meet ups but it ended up being just me and Becca and then the last one I sat in the Nottingham Knight pub for 45 mins and no-one turned up so I am a little reluctant to organise another one. If there was lots of interest I would be happy to co-ordinate (and change venue, time, day of the week if required). So ladies of the East midlands, if you want to meet others and chat with people who understand either respond on here or pm me and I will organise something. :)

Hi

I just wondered if it would be possible to join this group as I am based in Lincoln. I'm really looking for some advice/support, I was diagnosed with PCOS about 2 years ago (I'm 32) and have been ttc for 4 years. I am taking metformin and had a regular cycle for about 5/6 months the Dr said my main 'issue' is my weight, I am morbidly obese and wondered how other people have lost weight with PCOS is there a diet plan to follow or certain foods to cut back on/stop eating? Apart from the usual :P

Thanks

Cheryl

Hiya, I'm new here, just joined as me and my friend are really interested in setting up a Nottingham city centre PCOS support group. I was diagnosed when I was 16 (now 29) currently going through fertility treatment and really want to get together with other women who know what it's like living with PCOS and share experiences, and help people who are newly diagnosed get to grips with things. Is there still interest in a local group?

Hi, I'm new here & I'm really hoping there is a Leicester group somewhere?

I've been diagnosed for many years & now 26. Feel quite alone sometimes with pcos as none of my friends have it so would to speak to some other ladies :) !!

Is there a group running or could we get one started??

Thanks :)

Hiya! I've been talking to the lovely Verity people and am in the process of setting up a new Nottingham group , it'll be city centre so easy to get to on public transport from Leicester, Derby etc. Just getting a facebook group sorted and will hopefully have set some dates by the end of next week so I'll announce something soon :D x
