    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,

    We just found out today that we are having a boy! Put me on the blue team! This will be my husbands first (and only) child, so he is thrilled. I have two grown boys and a grandson that will be two next month. This always gets a chuckle when I tell people. I've heard people say that life begins at 40....well, it's like beginning again at 42 with a new baby on the way! We are so blessed that all tests and ultrasounds have been normal and no complications at all. We're half way there at 20 weeks. Due Oct. 7.

    P.S. I see these little code letters behind some of your signature lines and I can't figure out what they mean. I've got that it's husband's age, other siblings, etc. Could someone please clue me in and I'll add it to mine? :)

    Congrats!!!! None of the pregnant mommies have volunteered to keep up the due date list :( I'll post an update for this week. Maybe someone can take it over. It's too hard to keep up with it once the babes are born.

    Some of the codes are:
    DD, DS, and DH (Dear Daughter, son, hubby...)
    EDD (Estimated Due Date)
    Jeannie [Me (38); DH (41); DD 2 yrs 5 mos (EDD 12/23/2008 but born at 33 wks on 11/9/2008); DD 6 mos (EDD 10/18/2010 and born on 10/12/2010)]

    Thank you, Jeannie. I never could have guessed the "D" meant Dear. Sweet :)
