Never one to be content with just blogging away merrily, as soon as I discovered I was pregnant I wanted to talk about it with anyone who would listen. However coming from a small group of friends and being the first to fall pregnant meant that it felt quite lonely, the only people I had for advice were my Mum and my Grandma and needless to say they both had their babies a long time ago!

I'm now 26 weeks pregnant and still haven't found a regular chat for expects and new parents. There's a wealth of questions that I have that I'd like answers to and I'm sure I'm not alone in that. We now live in an age of information sharing and what better time to tell everyone your best tips and advice than during one of the scariest times of a woman's life?

I decided therefore, to set up #mumchat. It's not just for Mum's though, it's for Dad's and those who are expecting too. I want to try and keep it including pregnant bloggers as I'm aware there are already chats out there for parents. It'll be a weekly chat, to begin with on Thursdays at 8pm GMT (hopefully giving new parents a chance to put their little one's to bed and settle down with a cuppa) but if everyone would prefer a different day then we can adapt! The reason for the hashtag simply being #mumchat is that I always run out of characters during twitter chats so wanted to keep it as short and sweet as possible. I really hope it doesn't put you Dad's off!

The first topic will be on technology and will be this Thursday 7th January at 8pm GMT. I've got a list as long as Baby Sophie's arm of topics that I want to cover but obviously I'm looking for your input too. Just drop me a tweet or comment below if there's anything you'd like to see covered! Similarly, if you fancy hosting the chat one week - just let me know!

To find us you can visit our twitter page - @mumblogchat and follow!

Hopefully see you there soon!
