can I ask when people had or have booked their NCT classes for.
when I mailed them they recommended a course for certain dates so I went ahead and booked, they run from me being 35 weeks to 37 weeks, however a lot if people i know seem to start them around 32 weeks. I don't mind too much other than most of my Saturdays in December are now taken up with NCT, but am I likely to be a few weeks ahead of most of the group?

mine ran from about 29 weeks for about 4 or 5 weeks. We only made it to one Saturday class! we were all (originally) due about 2 months either side of each other. I think location is probably more important than due date if you are aiming to make friends with people in your group. we could have booked in at another group about 10 miles away that started later but it would have made making friendships more difficult due to the distances.

Mine were when I was about 34/35 weeks pregnant. All of our due dates were really close together, end Sept beginning Oct within a few days of each other. I don't know how they work it out though. One of our group ended up being induced at 37 weeks so there's almost 4 weeks between our babies and it hasn't made a difference though so I wouldn't worry x

i just put our postcode in and found the first course close to us! ours have been on a tuesday evening for 6 weeks with one sunday breastfeedign session. Im 32 weeks and it is our last one tonight.
Most of the ladies in our class are due during November.
The first baby is arriving Thurday via section so the births are going to be spread over almost 2 months! Really doesnt matter!

Mine are from 31 - 34 weeks - most ladies in my classes are November/December due dates, some ladies being 8 weeks difference.

Mine will start from around 30 weeks, i had a leter course that started around 34 weeks but i asked if i could swap incase i have baby early

We started ours around 29 weeks for 4 week i think. I was the last one due, about 6 weeks after the first, and our baby's are now 5 weeks apart, but it doesn't really make much difference

I was about 24 weeks when they started, and it was an 8 week course - I was the last one due, with the first due about 6 weeks before me.

About 35 weeks. We did long days every Saturday. All our due dates were within weeks of each other.
I think they try and keep your due dates quite close so one of you doesnt give birth months before and the rest are still waiting.

Ours started at about 28 weeks (evening course). There's a month between the oldest and youngest babies in our group.

My course starts at 35 weeks but it only last for two weekends. They are pretty long days. The course says it is for Feb/March babies so I think I am one of the earlier due dates. I was a bit concerned that they were rather late but other people I've spoken to said that was good because you won't forget it all and it's more relevant. Still not sure but I've paid for it now.

My course starts at 29 weeks and goes up until about 34 weeks but is an evening course. It's for mid Jan-Feb due dates so I can't see that we'll have more than 2 months-ish between births.

Thanks ladies, was worried that there may have been 3 months between babies, not that it would be a problem, but the courses run every month so I could gave gone earlier. I might email asking if we are all similar due dates x
