    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,

    hi there!

    hello- Excited to be joining you ladies! I got my BFP today! I'm 38, I had an early m/c about a year ago, and I have 2 beautiful little girls ages 6 and 4. :)
    VicsEandJ responded:
    Congratulations- I lurk here ( I was over 35 when I had my two) but am not stalking you! ;-)

    Have a happy and healthy 9 months!

    Hey Vickie! No worries :) I'm glad to be noticed. My first appointment is not until may 12 (forever!) I'll probably be more chatty about it after that. I didn't check this board for a while since I saw the tumble weeds blowing through.
    VicsEandJ replied to critty000's response:
    I like to check in because I loved this board when I was pregnant- though I was mostly a lurker too chicken to post!

    It's a shame that there is so much less traffic here now. Sadly I am not willing to do much about it :-). 2 is my limit but I like reading about other people's experiences as old mom's ( as my mom calls it!)

    Maybe spring will get more people in the procreating mood and liven the Baord up!

    Hopefully the next couple of weeks will go by fast for you! :-)

    Congrats, Critty!!!!

    I hear you Vickie. When the format changed, that was a major blow :(

    Hopefully the new ladies will help keep the support going stronger every day :)

    Congrats to you critty000. I joined in 2008 but did not post and could be considered "a lurker" as VicsEandJ puts it, LOL. I didn't post because I suffered a MC that year and another in 2010 and didn't think to reach out for support. I am happy to be hear now. I am PG with my 2nd child. I am 16 wks 4 days along and thankful to be progressing so well. Good luck on your journey! :)
    critty000 replied to lbean1975's response:
    thank you and congratulations to you as well :) I'm glad to hear you are doing well at 16 weeks :)

    How old is your first?

    this morning I had my first bit of morning sickness. I think I drank too much water, too fast. My girls were all worried about me- it was cute. The 4 year old dragged a chair into the kitchen and climbed up on the counter to get at some medicine for me. LOL, I keep it up there so that they can't get at them and there she was doing some acrobatics trying to help me. Not sure what she was planning to prescribe for vomiting. dangerous, but sweet.
    critty000 replied to QueenOfStarWars's response:
    and thanks Jeannie, too :) and Vickie- I'm not buying for a minute that you were "too chicken" for anything.

    Hi there critty000 , my oldest is 16 his name is Manuel, he's my profile pic (Yes I'm starting over but I had him young) I've ALWAYS wanted more children and I did want to give my son a playmate but circumstances led me down a different path. Luckily he has a step brother that is 4 years younger and they're pretty close, and my son is SUPER excited about his future brother or sister :) I read you have 2 little ones, your hands are full I'm sure :) Oh what fun, right!! ;)
