I have been living around the Triangle for over a year and because we thought we'd be leaving (we're just here on business) I haven't tried to make any friends. Now that I'm staying here while my husband will be working away from us, I would really like to get to know a few people and make some friends! We'll be moving near Chapel Hill in the next month or so.
My name is Jessica and I have a 27 month old son and I'm 20 weeks pregnant. 
Anyone out there? ;)

Hey, Jessica! I am pretty sure there are a fair number of members here from the area. You are definitely not alone. :) We're in Durham - I've got a 23 month old and I'm 8 months pregnant with #2.

I'm in Angier myself - my husband works in Cary and I work in Raleigh. We have a 17 mo, and spend a lot of time in the Durham Chapel Hill area. Have you joined any local groups? LLL is very active around here.

There are a lot of us in the area! Hope things work out for you. It can be hard meeting people sometimes, that's for sure! Good luck!  thumb.gif

I'm in Chapel Hill, my DD is just 1-2 weeks older than your son (4/27/10) and I'm expecting #3 in February (my oldest is 6).  We've been here for about a year and a half.  I don't get on here much, since it can be a bit slow, but try and check in every now and then.

we just sent in the application to rent a townhouse in chapel hill so i am itching to hear back and i know i will need to meet some people! my husband will be away on business and it will just be me and my son, so i can't go stir crazy. :) would anyone like to be facebook friends? maybe that would be a good way of seeing if we develop a friendship then we could meet up in person? or i'm open to suggestions. i don't go to LLL meetings, but will likely do that when this baby is born. :)
