    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,

    Do you have "phone buddies" who you can text or e-mail when you go into labor (if you get the chance) who can update the board for us?

    Well, if our hospital has internet I can do a quick post after DD is born. It might be the next day. I'll definitely post as soon as I can. I'll also let you all know how my appointment goes today.

    GL at your appt Michelle!

    I've got a smart phone, so if I think of it I can easily post a short update when I get to the hospital ect.
    After he's born I'm not sure if I'll be on here right away, so many ladies say they will update that day, but I don't think anyone ever has within a couple days of delivery, lol. I'll try though!

    LOL, I never thought of smart phones and internet at the hospital. I only got a smart phone after Bekah was born (and, really, it's not very smart, but it's better than nothing - I think) and my old hospital didn't have internet access. I didn't really get around to posting much during Bekah's labor, although - now that I think of it - I did upload photos to Facebook afterwards. Good thoughts.

    I...cough...would be willing to start a phone buddy list, if anyone wants. We had one when I was on here the first time around, back in 2006 (yikes, that was a long time ago!) I'll do a separate post about it. But people will have to be on me to keep it updated, because I am soooo bad about that type of thing! Ahh!
