I'm still not on the Facebook group, how do I join? It is super secret isn't it? People on my friends list won't see I've joined?

3rdtymmum2b Fri 02-May-14 12:25:18

checking in but could someone add me to the stats please my tab wont let me 24, dc3, august 11, team blue

DuPainDuVinDuFromage Fri 02-May-14 12:27:37

Thanks Disney and Secretly! I hadn't realised about the stats spreadsheet on FB - I had just assumed it was MN names and RL names rather than the full details.

Secretlypregnant Fri 02-May-14 12:28:06

If you send me a private message on here with your email address and a description of your FB photo, memedragon, I can add you.

It is TOTALLY secret. We have all checked and none of our friends have been able to see anything.

DuPainDuVinDuFromage Fri 02-May-14 12:29:55

Meme, if you send one of us a private message on Mumsnet with your real name and (unless you have a unique/v unusual name) a description of your profile picture, we can invite you to the group - we might need to add you as a friend at least temporarily to do this, I can't remember exactly how it works.

And yes it is totally private so nobody can see that you are a member or anything you post smile

Secretlypregnant Fri 02-May-14 12:30:05

No, it's where we've been tracking our various scan dates too, DuPain, been nice to see who shares dates!

DuPainDuVinDuFromage Fri 02-May-14 12:31:06

Oh maybe I'm wrong and it's email address rather than real name...go with what Secretly says rather than me as I might have got it wrong!

memedragon Fri 02-May-14 12:41:36

Oh good, I've been keeping it a Facebook secret - most people do know if I ever see or speak to them in real life, but I haven't announced it to the legions of friends' exs, old co-workers and people I met at hen parties that I have amassed over the years!

DisneyDiva87 Fri 02-May-14 12:46:55

Neither have I meme and I probably won't. But I'm not forbidding any mention of it, although no one has made any reference to it yet.

flymo79 Fri 02-May-14 14:52:15

checking in ladies, having the most attrocious day at work, I think I might be facing redundancy towards my due date. Pretty hellish....

DisneyDiva87 Fri 02-May-14 14:56:48

I thought you were safe from things like that if you were on maternity leave?

flymo79 Fri 02-May-14 15:05:50

...not if everyone's in the same situation, going on mat leave doesn't offer you any protection at all, you just have to not be discriminated against. But seeing as we're all in the same boat in my division it won't be seen as being discriminated against (even though it will obviously be double-cack for me as I will need to re-apply/interview while I am on mat leave and worrying about the entire security of my new family!)

Secretlypregnant Fri 02-May-14 15:54:28

Oh no, Flymo, that's a horrible end to the week. I'm so sorry. If it comes to that, would it mean a change of company or just of division?
