Re: Any pregnant women out there?

Dear Ladies,

A few of the mums to be now can't make it today so we are going to postpone the meet-up planned for 5.45pm today and will hopefully re-schedule it next week. I'll just post here the new date and time and meanwhile if anyone wants to meet up for an individual coffee to swap pregnancy stories feel free to private message me!

Eileen

That's good news. I wasn't able to make it today. Hopefully next week will be better

Re: Any pregnant women out there?

Hi Vixy,

my experience with this was quite short : I tried to sign up for the UniSpital Course in English, but the only availability was 2 weeks before my Due Date!! (this was 3- 4 months in advance btw so I wasn't exactly last minute)

I decided that for the 550 CHF they ask for per couple, I'd be better off getting as much info as possible online as I was mainly interested in birthing techniques anyway.

I think attending makes most sense if you want to feel super prepared and ready for birth but there are other means to educate yourself if you're willing to spend the time

Re: Any pregnant women out there?

Hello! I'm also pregnant, very fresh still, 10 weeks, I would love to get in touch with other confused and excited moms to be. Just moved to Zurich, if you are already meeting regular, it would be great if I can still get involved. I'm not working yet so if anyone would like to meet up for a coffe or lunch, just contact me.

Re: Any pregnant women out there?

Dear Soffan,


As far as I know there were some spontaneous meetings organized, but I couldn’t make it, cause I live in Olten and work around Bern. However once a week I usually work from the office in Zürich and I would love to meet pregnant fellows. ;-) I just need to know the planning a few days in advance so I can arrange my days accordingly.
I am in the 22 week and getting more excited and less confused as the weeks go by... ;-)
I would be happy to arrange a meet up, around 5:30pm I could make it somewhere in Zürich.



Anyone else interested to meet?


Cheers,
Vix

Re: Any pregnant women out there?

Hi there,

So we are 4 people till now. Maybe some other interested fellows will show up too.

I created a doodle poll so that we can easily decide the date of a meet up. Please mark all the days when you can make it, so maybe we can arrange more meet ups this way.

http://doodle.com/poll/y32f4ravcevp9awi

I will let you know which are the possible dates as soon as at least 4 of us filled the poll.

Other EF members, please do not hesisate to join us and fill the poll.

Cheers,
Vix

Re: Any pregnant women out there?

Hi there,


So 6 people filled the doodle so far. As expected, there is no appointment which fits us all. :-(

The winner, where 4 out of 6 people can make it is 20.10. or 22.10.
As I started the initiative I would like to go with Tuesday, 20.10. But please feel free to arrange other meetings without me!
So, those who said can come on Tuesday are Feret, Soffan and Helm. Of course anyone else can join who can make it on Tuesday.
Do you have a suggestion for the location? Somewhere close to Zürich HB, not very loud and with good food? ;-)
I am not from Zürich but worst case can come up with something!


I am looking forward to meet you ladies soon!


Cheers,
Vix

Re: Any pregnant women out there?

I won't make it to 17h30 (I need to travel from Rapperswil), but I should make it around 18h.

As for the place, what are you girls looking for? More dinner style? More caffe style? I do guess the champagne bars are off the list

Re: Any pregnant women out there?

6pm is fair enough. Good that u can make it Helm! I am looking for food usually (could die from hunger at that time of the day)... But something easy going, where we can chat (no 5 screens with sports and shouting men around)... Hope you know what I mean... ;-)

Re: Any pregnant women out there?

I confess I am not the best to give ideas on cafes, but there is the Imagine in HB, the hotel on the other side of the street has great breakfast (not so sure about afternoon snacks), and *shoot me* I like the restaurant inside the Jelmoli (because of the fruit cakes...).

I'm absolutely open to other possibilities, though

Re: Any pregnant women out there?

Sounds good to me!
Let's collect the suggestions till Monday and on Monday we make a decision, ok?
I eat vegetarian or halal food (saw a turkish restaurant next to Jelmoli), but I'm totally flexible.

Cheers,

Hello!
Great that atleast a few of us can make it How about Hiltl rooftop, close to HB and they have vegetarian food buffe-style?

I'm totally fine with any choice of restaurant though.

Cheers

Re: Any pregnant women out there?

Hi Ladies,

Sorry I've not responded sooner... We've moved this weekend and the wifi/ signal is a bit hit and miss...

I'm fine with Tuesday and good for the restaurant, I too am vegetarian so suits me wonderfully!!

My direction skills are somewhat pathetic so I will be sure to get google maps at the ready!!

Looking forward to meeting you all, let me know a definite on the time.

See you Tuesday,

Feret.
