    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.

    Preganant and Missing Mom (Anyone else in this situation?)
    Mellee posted:
    Hello everyone ~ I found out I am pregnant for my first time, and my husband and I are overwhelmed with joy and gratitude for our little miracle.

    However, one of the most significant parts a women looks forward to in her pregnancy is sharing with her mother and going to her for advice and crying on her shoulder if need be, and looking forward to sharing babies firsts.... with her and so much more. I can not do this the way I wish, because my mother passed away a couple of years ago. I miss her daily and now pregnant miss her even more.

    While I feel so blessed to have my husband and to be expecting our little miracle, I'd appreciate sharing experiences here if anyone is in the same boat. Thought perhaps we could row these waters together in the next many months.

    With wishes for you all to have healthy joy filled months ahead.

    Best, Mel
