    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Baby's First Holiday - Plans, Gifts, Travel, Photos, Stess, Survival
    Elizabeth_WebMD_Staff posted:
    Fun, exciting expectations of your baby's first holiday and then reality sets in - tired from no sleep, no time to leisurely shop for gifts, meals to prepare and everyone wants to see your new LO....... The list goes on and on.

    Share your plans and let's brainstorm to minimize the stress and take time to enjoy the holidays!

    My daughter was born Nov 4 and I remember being stressed out trying to keeping her away from germy hands and kisses.

    We also did not buy much that year, I think an ornament and books. Seemed like we were still overwhelmed from all the new stuff that goes along with having a new baby.

    Packing was an ordeal. My "Be Prepared" Girl Scout tendencies annoyed my husband to no end (and still does)!

    I don't remember our Christmas pic! Do you have one planned?
