    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 all either have a mother, are going to become a mother or are already a mom.

    To those that gave birth to us, we give thanks. For the mothers — in — the — making, congratulations! For the current moms- good job and hang in there! The truth is that being a mom is possibly THE hardest job in the world — exhausting, depleting, and draining. Luckily, on most days, that second wind or cute moment occurs to give us the stamina to carry on. I've heard motherhood described as juggling fragile, extremely valuable balls in the air- we can't let ANY of them go splat on the ground — and those would be our children.

    The most common theme and desire among moms: " appreciate me" and " let me sleep in." One mom even said that while she loved her family — the greatest gift to receive was a day OFF! She asked that her husband take the kids (without her) for eight hours and bring back her favorite Chinese take — out!
